"A powerful, deep wine, the 2010 Barolo Gramolere wraps around the palate with gorgeous resonance. Mint, pine, menthol, spices and new leather are all beautifully expressive in the glass. The tannins are firm, but also very nicely integrated. It will be interesting to see how the 2010 ages. Today, it is full of potential."

"Rose, cherry and underbrush flavors highlight this elegant red. Silky and firm, with snappy acidity marshaling the flavors through the long aftertaste. Balanced, with an aftertaste of dried berry, tobacco and mineral. Best from 2018 through 2033. 950 cases made."
"100% Nebbiolo sourced from the Gramolere vineyard in Monforte d’Alba. Traditional-style Barolo, fermented using natural yeasts with long skin contact. Ageing is carried out in botti and tonneaux (500lt and 700lt in size) for 36 months. Unfiltered.
With 4 hectares, Gramolere represents the largest production Barolo for the Manzone family. Annual production varies based on whether the Riserva is made in the specific vintage. Gramolere is the very first Barolo made by the family in the 1960’s and labeled as ‘Gramolere’. Gramolere faces Bussia and the soil composition is very similar deriving in wines that show similar style and elegance as Bussia. Of the 3 Barolos it should be tasted first.
Manzone’s high-elevation vineyards and their extreme steepness foster naturally low-yielding vines which produce wines that are approachable while young, yet remain amongst the most concentrated and longest-lived of all Barolos. Principles of natural, non-invasive agriculture are followed in the vineyards: no insecticides or fertilizers have ever been used. Minimal amounts of SO2 are added and all the wines are unclarified and unfiltered.
This elegant Barolo is lively ruby red with a thick texture. Typical rose, cherry and wild fruit notes with a slightly spicy and balsamic touch. Silky, full and supple with balanced tannins and a good acidity which makes it an excellent choice over roasts, game and seasoned cheeses." - Importer
