1999 Elio Grasso, Barolo, Ginestra, Case Matè (RT94+) The contrast between Clerico Ginestra and this wine was notable, but it could be argued the similarities, given the same vineyard site, were greater. This said, from first sip it is apparent the fruit and tannins are riper in the Case Matè with a bouquet that hints at sappy black fruits, tea, sottobosco and hint of brown sugar. Tremendous balance on the palate with mouthcoating fruit, perfectly dosed acidity and suavé, uber-ripe tannin. Has a great future ahead and for my palate is showing better tonight than the Clerico, but it may be the other way around down the road. My #3 favorite of the night. Drink 2014-2034
