The exuberant personality of the vintage is also a bit more balanced and restrained. This is a beautifully layered textured Ginestra Casa Mate endowed with endless layers of dark mineral-infused balsamic-tinged dark fruit all of which flow through effortlessly to a long sumptuous finish that lasts forever. The stunning bouquet purity of the fruit and overall balance are simply breathtaking. The Ginestra Casa Mate will be a fascinating wine to follow over the coming years and decades. Could it be a modern-day 1990? Anticipated maturity: 2017-2032. These 2007 Baroli from Elio Grasso are worthy successors to the stunning 2006s. Readers will have to wait until 2012 for the 2006 Barolo Runcot. The more time passes the greater my esteem grows for this underappreciated and often overlooked grower in Monforte. To be sure Domenico Clerico Conterno-Fantino and Aldo Conterno get most of the attention in Monforte but at their best Grasso's Baroli more than hold their own. A recent magnum of the 2000 Runcot was quite possibly the finest and most elegant 100% new French oak-aged Barolo I have ever tasted. Grasso's 2007s Baroli saw 30 days of contact on the skins followed by a full 30 months in large neutral oak casks. -Antonio Galloni
