About

91

"Subtle and refined with plum, light chocolate and walnut aromas and flavors. Full body, fine tannins and a clean, fresh finish. Better in 2018."

90 Wine Enthusiast

"This offers pretty aromas of fragrant blue flower, rose and wild berry. The tightly wound palate shows Morello cherry, coffee and a hint of dried herb alongside close-grained tannins. Drink 2019–2024. -KO"

90 Wine Spectator

"A racy, sinewy style, exhibiting cherry, licorice, eucalyptus and iron, backed by a wall of massive, mouthcoating tannins. Offers freshness and resonance on the finish. Best from 2020 through 2035. 1,000 cases made. -BS"

Product Description:

"The story of Azienda Bruna Grimaldi is one of family tradition: people born and raised in Barolo among the hills that connect the villages of Grinzane Cavour to Serralunga, combined with a passion for wine and working the vineyards that has been handed down through the decades. The winery has grown over the years, thanks to its dedication to the great wines of the Langhe and great care in the selection of the most suitable vineyards for the production of Barolo.

The philosophy of Bruna Grimaldi is simple and relies on basic principles: the quality of a wine originates in the vineyard and is largely determined through a good green harvest. Thanks to an attentive selection of grapes, they bottle impeccable wines that faithfully represent their region. The combined knowledge of Bruna Grimaldi and Franco Fiorino, along with the contribution of accomplished agronomist Giampiero Romana, have a sole aim: to cultivate the vines in such a way as to produce important, full-bodied wines with intense aromas, which highlight the best that nature and the soil have to offer. Ten hectares produce approximately 50,000 bottles that all express the typical essence of Langa wines, from Barolo to Dolcetto, from Barbera to Nebbiolo d’Alba.

The identity of the winery, Bruna Grimaldi, is clear and defined, especially through its three cru Baroli: Barolo Badarina from Serralunga, Barolo Camilla from Grinzane Cavour and Barolo Bricco Ambrogio from Roddi. The work in the vineyards is performed following traditional methods: the vines develop naturally. The spontaneous growth of weeds is kept under control through mechanical means and not by the use of any herbicides. When the grapes start to ripen, they carry out analyses on sugar content, acidity and polyphenols, in order to harvest healthy grapes at the correct ripening level, which will give a wine with distinct aromas. No chemical products are used to control grey mold or pests, nor are any systemic products. The health of the grapes is guaranteed especially by the careful selections of bunches and leaves by hand, thus ensuring the production of grapes that give rise to quality wines." - Importer
