2013 Tiziano Grasso La Briccolina Barolo 'Briccolina'

$59.95

This wine has a great story. Starting a few years ago, Tiziano Grasso decided to hold back his best fruit from his eldest vines in the south-facing Briccolina in Serralunga d’Alba, making 300 cases under his own label (the rest is sold to Batasiolo). For many years, the fruit was sold to none other than [the august] Dr. Giuseppe Cappellano, who loved the wines’ intense aromatics. This cru is as rare as hen’s teeth, and bursts from the glass with classic notes of candied cranberry, peach, tarry strawberry, and red roses. It’s very structured and fresh, promising a long rest in the cellar. You’ll be racing us to this one!
