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?

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.

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. -- Antonio Galloni collapse

This beautifully balanced Barolo opens to a light garnet appearance with dark ruby highlights. The wine is lean and polished in terms of its initial approach, but it does fan out over the palate in silky waves. The bouquet here is classic Nebbiolo with blue flowers, wild berries, light spice and smoke. - Monica Larner collapse

Wine Spectator, June 2017
A whiff of hay gives way to cherry, strawberry, rose and tobacco aromas and flavors. This is elegant and steely, with dense tannins shoring up the mouthwatering finish. Best from 2022 through 2036. 725 cases made. — BS
