The 2004 Barolo L'Andre is a round, open-knit wine to drink now and over the next few years at most, as there is limited complexity and depth to be found in the dark red stone fruit, spice and leather flavors. A closing note of freshness suggests the 2004 might keep for a few years, but I would not push my luck. May 2015, www.vinous.com, Drink: 2015-2017

40 days on the skins and aged for two years in 10-30 hl oak casks. Healthy mid ruby with orange tinges. Hints of sweet forest fruit, but otherwise quite reluctant to open up. Intense, ripe attack on the palate with an abundance of fruit. Powerful but stylish finish with good acidity. May 2014, www.jancisrobbinson.com, Drink: 2014-2038

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
