Professional Reviews For This Wine


International Wine Cellar | Rating: 89

($86) Medium red. Reticent aromas of raspberry, cherry and menthol. Sweet and minty, with rather forward fruit flavors and limited complexity. Offers broader tannins than the normale but still finishes a tad dry.

Einaudi chooses the top 20% of the vineyard's production to bottle as his Costa Grimaldi. The remaining 80% is sold as Einaudi's generic Barolo. Tight but concentrated nose of red fruits, licorice, some rose, and slight truffle. Round and ripe with tons of concentrated fruit. Significantly tannic with high acidity, but the wine's concentration has no problem handling its structure. I bought a case for my personal cellar.

Wine Varietal: Nebbiolo


Big, dark, and bold, Nebbiolo is a robust variety with heavy tannins and a sometimes bitter profile. While areas outside Italy (Argentina, Australia, New Zealand, California, and South Africa) have begun cultivating Nebbiolo, the Italian region of Piedmont is where it reaches its greatest height. It is here, the historic home to Nebbiolo, where the finest Barolos and Barbarescos are produced. Many winemakers have compared this grape to Pinot Noir for its difficult growing habits and unpredictable cellar and aging behavior. Typical descriptors for Nebbiolo include roses, violets, tar, wild herbs, cherries, raspberries, truffles, and tobacco.
