This is a deep and dense Barolo with dark fruit, spices, and hints of toasted oak. A rich, round, medium-bodied Barolo, with lovely balance and a long satisfying finish. An accessible Barolo for drinking now.
100% Nebbiolo. Giacomo Grimaldi, was founded in 1930 by Ernesto Grimaldi. In 1983 the winery was inherited by Giacomo, who sold the greatest part of his grapes in bulk, while keeping only a small part to be bottled for sale to a mostly local clientele. In 1996 Ferruccio Grimaldi, Giacomo's son, decided to continue the family wine business. Animated by a great passion, Ferruccio started to produce wines exclusively from the family's vineyards. He began acquiring vineyards of Nebbiolo in the most prestigious Barolo zones, firmly convinced of the great potential of Barolo wine. The family's vines grew from 3.7 acres to 24.7 acres. In the vineyard, there is significant attention and a deep devotion to the care of the vines. Ferruccio is renowned amongst other winemakers for his perfectionism in caring for the plants. Green harvest is vital to Ferruccio; to reduce the quantity of the yield for a better quality. The total production of the Giacomo Grimaldi winery is of around 50,000 bottles, divided into seven labels.
