The Elio Grasso Estate, located in Monforte d’Alba, has 42 hectares of land of which 24 are forests and meadows that surround the 18 hectares of vineyards, within the World Heritage site. It's the perfect home for this beautiful 2016 Barbera d’Alba, made from grapes grown on sandy, limestone soils. Blackberry, summer cherry and plum rise from the glass, and blossom on the palate, balanced by smooth tannins and balanced acidity. Some 18 months of oak aging adds delicate touches of spice, leather and cedar. Perfect for homemade osso bucco, grilled steak, mushroom risotto, and a host of other preparations.
