Average critic rating : 90.0 points



The 2005 Barolo Ciabot Manzoni provides a gorgeous counterpoint to the Bricco Luciani. Dark cherries, tar, spices, chocolate and French oak are some of the nuances that emerge from this rich, full-bodied wine. Grasso’s Ciabot Manzoni possesses superb density and concentration, even if the oak is quite overt. Grasso gave the Ciabot Manzoni 100% new oak, an approach that producers in La Morra and elsewhere in Piedmont have largely moved away from. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2021. ||A Marc de Grazia Selection, various American importers, including Michael Skurnik, Syosset, NY; tel. (516) 677-9300, Vin Divino, Chicago, IL; 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.

“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.” Antonio Galloni
