Wine Advocate 96 points - The 2006 Barolo Riserva Runcot is a huge, structured wine bursting at the seams with fruit. The French oak (100% new) is beautifully integrated. Today the wine is understandably quite reticent but its pedigree is hard to miss. Flowers, licorice and minerals linger on the finish. The 2006 Runcot needs time, most likely lots of it. Let me just say I canít wait to taste this powerhouse once it has had more time in bottle. It is a dazzling effort. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2031. 96+ Points (Oct 2011)

Located outside the town of Monforte d'Alba on the eastern side of the Barolo appellation is Elio Grasso. A benchmark for quintessential, traditionally made Barolo, the family keeps production at a level where they can retain control over all aspects of winemaking. Elio works mostly in the vineyards, leaving the cellar work to his son Gianluca and wine consultant, Piero Ballario. All Grasso wines are produced using estate-grown fruit. The Barolos are produced from three, south-facing vineyards in Monforte: Ginestra Vigna Casa Mate, Gavarini Vigna Chiniera and Runcot. These steep vineyards are planted at 918-1,312 feet to loosely packed calcareous soils. Varietals are vinified separately, according to vineyard provenance and all the wines, with the exception of the Chardonnay are fermented in steel. These wines combine structure with elegance, aromatic finesse, solid character and exceptional aging potential.
