Här redovisar och presenterar vi kända vinskribenters utlåtande om specifika viner. Utöver dessa lägger vi in en egen kommentar när vi har provat samma vin.

James Suckling: Exceptional vintage
Ripe plums and warm tannins, making this a solid example of a barbera from this exceptional vintage. With a little more vitality at the finish, this would have been rated even higher. Drink now or in 2019 and 2020.
Gassås Wine: Väldigt bra årgång

GROWING LOCATION: the vineyard faces south-south west in the village of Monforte d’Alba, with vines trained on vertical trellises and pruned using the Guyot system. The particularly sun-blessed location and well-drained, marly soil bring out the very best in the barbera grapes grown on this vineyard.


WINE MAKING PROCESS: on the skins, with a submerged cap and daily pumping over of the must; continuation of the maceration for 10-15 days after the alcoholic fermentation; the drawing off and first rackings are followed by the malolactic fermentation and subsequent maturing in oak for a year; several months of ageing in the bottle finally prepare the wine for its release.

TASTING NOTES: very intense, vivid garnet red, with slight purplish highlights; clean, expansive, intense nose, with hints of chocolate, cocoa, roses and sweet tobacco; full, round and very well-balanced on the mouth, with a long, spicy finish.

Le Origini storiche

“Cantina Le Ginestre” is a wine-growing family business located in the village of Grinzane Cavour, in the Langhe hills, a Unesco Heritage, in Piedmont, North-West of Italy.

The small Ginestre hamlet was already marked on land registry maps as far as the 1700s, and it has always been inhabited by wine-growers, who have passed on their passion for working in the vineyards with the skills that are still theirs today. Some of them, who worked in the property of Camillo Benso Count of Cavour, architect of the Unification of Italy, were the Audasso family’s forefathers.

Nowadays in the Mask Room of the Castle of Grinzane Cavour it is possible to see the Land Registry Maps of the 1783, where our property is marked, as it once was called, the “Region of the Ginestre”.

The Family

After 17 years in which the Count was mayor in Grinzane Cavour, when the estate was sold, the land was purchased by local farmers, including the Audasso’s forefathers, who continued the wine production.
Sadly, this tradition was interrupted by Second World War. Michele Audasso joined the Army and he disappeared in Russia.

Only in the 80s his son Franco, with the help of his wife, Giulia, started the vinification of the vineyards of “Le Ginestre”, carrying on his father’s legacy. Today Gian Luca and Barbara, their son and daughter, pride themselves on continuing the family tradition

Vineyard cultivated with Nebbiolo for the production of Barolo located in the municipality of Grinzane Cavour, at an altitude of 250 metres above sea level, characterised by alluvial soil, Sant’Agata Fossil marl, clayey-calcareous loam, with southerly exposure.

Only organic fertilisers are used in the vineyard, while natural copper and sulphur-based products are used to prevent diseases of the vine. Production is regulated by manual thinning of the bunches in order to promote perfect ripening.


Barolo Le Ginestre is produced from this vineyard only in exceptional years.


The love that binds us to this land, which is incredibly demanding in terms of energy and daily commitment but just as generous when it comes to the quality of its wines, encourages us to improve constantly.
