RATINGS: 97 pts. Wine Enthusiast

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.

97 pts. Wine Enthusiast: A balsamic note of menthol, dark culinary spice, crushed herb, new leather and wild berry aromas come together in the glass. Firmly structured but extraordinarily refined, the palate doles out red cherry, crushed strawberry, tobacco and cinnamon set against tightly woven refined tannins. Lively acidity lends balance and energy while a licorice note wraps around the lingering finish. Drink 2025–2043.

TASTING NOTES: James Suckling - "A firm and silky red with dried berries, walnuts and hints of cedar. Medium to full body, a solid core of tannins and a fresh finish. A little tight now but already beautiful."
