Giacomo Grimaldi Barolo Le Coste 2010
Outstanding finesse. Visible structure and texture. An austere, noble red with a deep, broad nose, hints of soft fruit, spices, and dried flowers. On the palate it immediately unleashes the full power of the great Barolos and the velvety texture of its long aging. Destined for eternity.
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.
