Grasso's 2014 Barolo Briccolina is a beautiful wine. Pliant, supple and generous, it is absolutely delicious today. Black cherry, smoke, licorice, new leather and cloves all give the wine its distinctive dark flavor profile. The 2014 is plush and racy, with lovely depth and fabulous balance. A dash of new oak is evident but not distracting. Although not especially complex, the 2014 is absolutely irresistible.
