Grasso Fratelli 2017 Vallegrande (Barbaresco)

Brawny and concentrated, this opens with aromas of violet, baked plum and oak-driven spice. On the meaty palate, grainy drying tannins accompany dried black cherry, licorice and the heat of evident alcohol that throws it somewhat off balance. It shows the scorching heat of the vintage and the fruit is evolving fast so despite the tannins, drink sooner rather than later. Kerin O’Keefe
