95/100 - Soils in the Ginestra vineyard show more moisture-retaining clay in their composition, making them better positioned to handle hot and dry vintages such as this. The Elio Grasso 2017 Barolo Ginestra Casa Maté reveals soft concentration and extra richness; however, the aromatic nuances are well intact. I recall that the previous 2016 vintage took longer to come into focus, whereas this 2017 expression is open-knit and immediately accessible. The fruit is front and center, and the wine slides over the palate with a silky texture. Managing the tannins in 2017 was not easy, but this wine proves that lasting balance is not out of reach. - Monica Larner, Wine Advocate 

96/100 - The 2017 Barolo Ginestra Casa Matè is a dark, mysterious wine. Black cherry, menthol, tobacco, licorice, spice, new leather and pine meld together in a super-classic expression of Ginestra. Deep, rich and enveloping, the 2017 is so impressive in the early going. Here, too, the finesse of the tannins is remarkable. - Antonio Galloni, Vinous 

98/100 - This is really transparent with sweet strawberries, flowers and orange peel, as well as some conifer and pine-nut undertones. Full-bodied and layered with intense young tannins, intertwined with bright fruit. Great finish. This is really something else. Needs time to soften, of course. Try after 2025. - James Suckling

Multi-layered flavours of earth, dark dried fruit, and alluring floral aromatics.
Rich and full-bodied, with a strong presence of acidity and tannins.
Monforte d'Alba, where this memorable Barolo comes from, is acknowledged as one of the great capitals of Barolo
Great aging potential.
Luscious reds of Barolo are perfect for spring and summer barbecues, mushroom risottos,  hearty steak dinners, hard cheeses and charcuterie platter
