"The Bruna Grimaldi 2016 Barolo Riserva Badarina sets off according to its own careful tempo, but it opens slowly to reveal not only the beauty and intensity of this classic vintage but also the power and depth of Serralunga d'Alba, home to some of Barolo's most impactful wines. The fruit used here comes specifically from the Vigna Regnola, which the Grimaldi family always vinifies separately, especially in the best vintages. This is a finely delineated and focused expression of Nebbiolo with a firm tannic backbone that supports dark fruit flavors, crushed stone, lilac and candied orange peel. I would recommend setting this bottle aside for another 5 to 10 years, giving it time to become more supple and smooth. A precious few 733 bottles were released."

Product Description:

"Barolo Badarina Riserva comes from Vigna Regnola, the Badarina side historically planted with Nebbiolo grapes given an excellent exposure and an extremely suitable terrain. The concentration of the grapes of this plot allows to produce a Badarina of greater structure and power, which follows the vinification of the grapes of the same mention but is proposed after longer refinements, in cask and in the bottle. It is produced only in the best vintages and the production level is low." - Winery
