We believe that to be acknowledged first as grape farmers, and then as wine producers, is the best way to honour, and continue the labours of, those who have faced before us the challenges that working with nature and her products, like wine, entails
The Barolo di Elio Grasso is a powerful and elegant expression of three historic Langarole vineyards. 18 hectares of vineyards in the municipality of Monforte d'Alba, located between various crus and with the lowest vineyards in Barbera or Dolcetto, with a single and iron belief: making wines that photograph the richness of the Langarolo terroir
The Nebbiolo of the Elio Grasso winery is a simple and refined red, the expression of a breathtaking territory, that of the Langhe, Unesco world heritage landscape. Nebbiolo has always been the king of the vines in this region, managing to give results that are difficult to replicate in other areas outside of Piedmont.
We believe that to be acknowledged first as grape farmers, and then as wine producers, is the best way to honour, and continue the labours of, those who have faced before us the challenges that working with nature and her products, like wine, entails. This, and a desire to be true to ourselves, prompts us propose, without presumption, the convictions and conduct shared by all Langhe farming families, characteristics worth preserving and which we believe make the difference.
it was in the early 1980s that we decided to go back to our origins as grape growers, well aware that our work did not stop at the end of the row of vines. We had no illusions that we were inventing anything: we merely wanted to comply with the best in the traditions and work of our predecessors, without any preconceived ideas. The first logical consequence was the decision, from 1978, to vinify and bottle separately grapes from our various vineyards.
Our goal was to enable the estate to find its own space in a market where excellent producers were already operating. Our one-step-at-a-time policy began with the successive replantings of our Nebbiolo, Barbera and Dolcetto. In 1986, we added a small plot of a non-native variety, Chardonnay, “educating” the fruit to express the terroir into which it had been introduced. At present, our average annual output does not exceed 90,000 bottles, a level that enables us to maintain the family-managed orientation of our work, as well as meticulous control over all stages of winemaking, from vineyard to cellar.
