After hand harvest of the nebbiolo grapes from the Sotto
il Castello Vineyards in Novello, the grapes undergo 5–7
days of maceration in temperature controlled horizontal
rotofermenters. The malolactic fermentation follows in
barrique. The wine then ages for 22–24 months in French
barriques (50–60% new the rest are second or third use).
After blending, the wine sits for 8 months in stainless
steel tanks before bottling.
A ripe wine with generous flavors of blueberries, spices,
violets and toasted oak. This well-structured Barolo has
elegant tannins with considerable depth and an overall
"Lovely sweet berry and ripe raspberry aromas have a floral undertone. Full-bodied, with gorgeous fruit, supervelvety tannins and a long, long finish. Best after 2012"
"This expression of Nebbiolo offers elegant layers of berry, smoke, spice and cola that build in intensity and persistency over the palate. This is a cellarworthy wine that will drink best five to 10 years from now. When it’s ready, pair it with braised lamb with aromatic herbs. "
"Grimaldi's 2005 Barolo Sotto Castello di Novello sparkles on the palate with gorgeous ripe dark fruit.

Anticipated maturity: 2012-2020"
