RATINGS: 95pts James Suckling

Over a half century ago, the grandfather of the present owners began to ferment a part of the grapes which he cultivated at Grinzane Cavour. He was later joined by his son, thanks to whose aid and assistance he was able to ferment the entire crop which he farmed. In more recent times, Bruna Grimaldi and her husband, Franco Fiorino, both trained oenologists, have joined the family firm and increased the overall vineyard surface to its current eight hectares (20 acres), acquiring vineyards in Diano d'Alba, Corneliano, and Serralunga d’Alba. Highly regarded professionals – agronomist Gianpiero Romana and winemaker Beppe Caviola – are now working with the estate in a project which aims at the highest possible quality and personality in the wines and a complete respect for the territory, the soil, and the microclimate, in which they are born.

These are true cultivator-producers, well aware that fine wine begins in the vineyard, and precisely for this reason they give their maximum time, attention, and commitment to the vineyard work. Important investments, nonetheless, have gone into fully equipping the cellars for the proper fermenting and aging of the wines.

TASTING NOTES: James Suckling - "Very perfumed with floral and honey character highlighting the ripe fruit. Full body, firm and silky tannins and a long and flavorful finish. Linear and very finely textured. Excellent. Begin drinking in 2021. "
