Cherry and plum flavors resonate throughout this red, joined by notes of eucalyptus, tar, tobacco and spice. The fruit persists, with a firm grip of tannins as this fades on the finish. 1,000 cases made
ABOUT THE PRODUCER: GIACOMO GRIMALDI
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, Giacomos son decided to continue the family wine business. Animated by a great passion, Ferruccio started to produce wines exclusively from the familys vineyards. He began acquiring vineyards of Nebbiolo in the most prestigious Barolo zones, firmly convinced of the great potential of Barolo wine. The familys vines grew from 1.5 hectares to 10 hectares. The current vineyards are situated in the communes of Barolo, Novello and Monforte and divided as follows: six hectares of Nebbiolo for Barolo, two of Barbera dAlba, one of Dolcetto dAlba, one of Nebbiolo. In the vineyard, there is significant attention and a deep devotion to the care of the vines. Ferruccio is renowned amongst other wine makers 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.
