The Grasso family was born with the Asili cru, one of the best known and most appreciated Barbaresco crus, precisely the one in which they have the great fortune of cultivating the oldest vines. Some of these are over 60 years old! Following a very long submerged cap fermentation in steel, the wine continues with an aging of 24 months in large Slavonian oak barrels and a short passage in tonneaux. It concludes by spending six months in the bottle. The result is a Barbaresco with complex and multifaceted aromas, spicy but with delicate floral notes that envelop it in a velvety body. Although the 2017 vintage was not very generous, the Grasso family managed to make the most of it, once again giving life to a wine of great expressiveness and elegance.

Even before the wine, what captivated us about Ca del Baio were the people: Paola, Valentina and Federica, the three Grasso sisters who, following in the footsteps of their father Giuliano and mother Luciana, carry on the family cellar, producing wine from four generations between the municipalities of Barbaresco and Treiso. A sustainable, careful approach and meticulous viticulture. A family affair as usual in these parts, in which the protagonists captivate with their kindness, integrity and hospitality. The memory of the lunch after the visit to the cellar with that knife attack prepared in front of our eyes, observing the authenticity of every gesture, breathing in the rites of sacred hospitality was only a prelude to the beauty of the wines drunk: true, direct, indelible.
