Barolo. Just mid ruby with orange tinges. The most genuinely fruit-driven nose of Einaudi’s 2013 offerings. Succulent fruit framed by bittersweet, powdery tannins. Still a little austere but plenty of future. (WS) 17+/20 points
This opens with delicate aromas of rose petal, mocha and a whiff of sage. The vibrant, youthfully austere palate offers sour cherry, tobacco and star anise alongside taut fine-grained tannins and bright acidity. Drink after 2023. (KO)
A whiff of hay gives way to cherry, strawberry, rose and tobacco aromas and flavors. This is elegant and steely, with dense tannins on the mouthwatering finish. (BS)
Black cherry, smoke, tar, licorice and menthol give the 2013 Barolo Terlo Vigna Costa Grimaldi much of its virile personality. Here, too, the level of fruit intensity is considerable, but, as always, the Costa Grimaldi has the broad shoulders and frame to hand all of that richness. Readers will have to be patient, as the 2013 needs at least a few years in bottle to shed some of its youthful tannin. This is impressive juice. (AG) 94+
Ripe fruit with orange-peel, walnut and ripe-strawberry aromas. Full body, ultra-fine and long tannins and a finish that lasts for minutes. Wow. Gorgeous. Better in 2021 but who can wait?
Though Terlo is predominantly east facing, Einaudi's Costa Grimaldi vineyard curves southward, creating a southeastern exposure. The wine is aged in a combination of medium-toast French barriques, 10% new, and five hectolitre French and Austrian casks. Smoky and grilled at first, it then opens up to reveal enticing black pepper, graphite and fragrant black tea nuances. It is concentrated and layered without being heavy, and the fruit is supported by firm, confident tannins. (MM)
