The 2003 Barolo Ciabot Manzoni is another of the more successful wines. It is a fresh, vibrant Barolo with a generous, ample personality, outstanding length and plenty of sweet layered red cherries, menthol and sweet toasted oak. It is also the most oaky of these wines and will require another year or two in bottle to come together. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2016. ||Federico Grasso is a small artisan grower based in La Morra. The estate’s Barolos are among my favorite wines for near-term drinking in most vintages. However, these 2003s show an uneven level of quality which is typical of the vintage.||A Marc de Grazia Selection, various American importers, including Michael Skurnik, Syosset, NY; tel.

The Grasso family have been making wine since 1927, but have only been bottling all their production since the mid-1980s when Federico (the current proprietor) took over from his father Silvio. This is a particularly interesting estate in that they make both modern and traditional styles. The Manzoni and Luciani get the barrique treatment whilst the Turne (formerly l’Andre) has a traditional elevage.
