Silvio Grasso Langhe Rosso 2016

The Grasso family have been making wine since 1927, but have only been bottling all their production since the mid – 1980s, when Alessio Federico took over from his father Silvio.

The total vineyard surface area is 14 hectares; 6 estate are owned and 8 are leased. Federico Grasso is backed by his wife Marilena and by his sons Silvio and Paolo.

Langhe, Piedmont, Italy 


33% Syrah, 33% Merlot, 33% Nebbiolo. Fermentation in steel tanks for 10 days; the wine matures in stainless steel for 6 months and then in wood for 3 months. The wine is aged in the bottle for 6 months.


Discreet but heady red fruit aromas lead to an appealing rustic-edged palate with earthy notes and firm tannins framing fleshy black fruit, pepper, red flowers and a mineral touch all amiably refreshed by cheerful acidity.
