The Silvio Grasso company was founded in 1927 but it was only in the mid-1980s that Alessio Federico (current owner), who took over from his father Silvio, began to bottle the entire production.
The company has 14 hectares of which 6 are owned and 8 are rented and is family-run with his wife Marilena and sons Paolo and Silvio.

Good, nutty red-fruit aromas follow through to a medium-bodied palate with integrated tannins and a medium finish.
On the nose...excellent, nutty red-fruits aromas that transitions into a medium-bodied texture with well integrated tannis and lingering finish. This wine has some complexity and fineness for this vintage. Drink now, or hold for 10 years.
Food Pairing Suggestions
Mushroom risotto, mushroom pasta, or mushroom ragoût.
