The result of an accurate selection of grapes from the Einaudi vineyard in Barolo. A great wine of the Langa, garnet red with a shade of amber, of intense and embracing fragrance, full bodied but smooth tannic taste, with a long spiced final taste. Derived from the Nebbiolo grapes from the Costa Grimaldi vineyard owned by the Einaudi estate, facing Barolo. The tannic characteristics guarantee a long life in bottle. With time it acquires complexity as the ethereal aromas of spices, truffles and leather.

Wine EnthusiastYou'll want to give this beautiful Barolo 5-10 more years to age in your cellar. At this early stage in its life, Costa Grimaldi shows amazing potential thanks to its aromas of big red fruit and spice. Don't let those initial impressions mislead you. After a few minutes in the glass, the wine shows impressive complexity and endurance.

Wine AdvocateThe 2007 Barolo Costa Grimaldi is fabulously rich, dense and well-balanced in this vintage. The Costa Grimaldi is made from a parcel of the Via Nuova vineyard in Barolo at 350 meters above sea level with a sheltered south-east exposure that provides respite in warmer years. This shows tons of vintage character in its racy, elegant fruit and silky tannins, along with superb depth and intensity, all of which have been achieved in a fairly restrained style. This is a fabulous effort from Einaudi. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2027.

Wine SpectatorA rich, almost chunky style, permeated with flavors of cherry, spicy plum and a mix of eucalyptus and licorice. Not a blockbuster, yet balanced and concentrated. Lingers on the finish. Best from 2014 through 2032.
