Tasting Notes

92(+?) points Stephen Tanzer: "Good full red. Red cherry, rose petal, brown spices and sweet oak on the sexy nose. More backward and medicinal than the 2005 or 2006 bottlings-and more classic Barolo in its dense flavors of camphor, menthol, brown spices and dried flowers. Finishes with surprisingly lush, broad, fine-grained tannins." (Nov/Dec '09) 91-94 points Robert Parker: "The 2004 Barolo Costa Grimaldi is a promising wine. This sweet, generous wine is endowed with an attractive plumpness to its fruit, with well-integrated oak and soft tannins that caress the palate through to the long finish. It offers superb balance, poise and harmony. Costa Grimaldi is made from the best parcels in Via Nuova vineyard in Barolo. The wine had been moved into steel tank from oak a few weeks before my visit. 2009-2022. Consulting oenologist Beppe Caviola has been instrumental in ratcheting up the quality at this historic property. I can-t think of too many estates that have made such significant strides in just the last few years"
