Winemaker Notes

Robust and full-bodied, with intense perfumes, a long finish and a garnet red color with orange reflections. Aroma: Ample and intense with sensations of violet, pepper, raspberries and dried roses along with classic tar.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JS 94
James Suckling
Some crushed red roses and lighter red-fruit aromas in an attractive, fragrant style. The palate has neat and succulent energy, good depth and nice, fine tannins, which bring in really impressive depth of berries and cherries. Drink or hold.
WE 92
Wine Enthusiast
Iris, rose and woodland berry take center stage on this full-bodied red. It’s elegant and structured, doling out strawberry compote, raspberry, licorice and a hint of coffee. Fine-grained tannins provide polished support.
RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Camilla is the name of a vineyard plot in Grinzane Cavour (along the small road at the back of the winery) that is only farmed by Bruna Grimaldi and her family. The 2014 Barolo Camilla shows very nice results with delicate and soft fruit. The vines are 40 years old, and the bouquet is especially marked by floral tones of rose hip and pressed violets. Skin maceration times are extended up to 30 days, but this expression of Nebbiolo remains silky and compact nonetheless.

Over a half century ago, the grandfather of the present owners began to ferment a part of the grapes which he cultivated at Grinzane Cavour. He was later joined by his son, thanks to whose aid and assistance he was able to ferment the entire crop which he farmed. In more recent times, Bruna Grimaldi and her husband, Franco Fiorino, both trained oenologists, have joined the family firm and increased the overall vineyard surface to its current eight hectares (20 acres), acquiring vineyards in Diano d'Alba, Corneliano, and Serralunga d’Alba. Highly regarded professionals – agronomist Gianpiero Romana and winemaker Beppe Caviola – are now working with the estate in a project which aims at the highest possible quality and personality in the wines and a complete respect for the territory, the soil, and the microclimate, in which they are born.

These are true cultivator-producers, well aware that fine wine begins in the vineyard, and precisely for this reason they give their maximum time, attention, and commitment to the vineyard work. Important investments, nonetheless, have gone into fully equipping the cellars for the proper fermenting and aging of the wines.

The center of the production of the world’s most exclusive and age-worthy red wines made from Nebbiolo, the Barolo region includes five core townships: La Morra, Monforte d’Alba, Serralunga d’Alba, Castiglione Falletto and the Barolo village itself, as well as a few outlying villages. The landscape of Barolo, characterized by prominent and castle-topped hills, is full of history and romance centered on the Nebbiolo grape. Its wines, with the signature “tar and roses” aromas, have a deceptively light garnet color but full presence on the palate and plenty of tannins and acidity. In a well-made Barolo, one can expect to find complexity and good evolution with notes of, for example, strawberry, cherry, plum, leather, truffle, anise, fresh and dried herbs, tobacco and violets.

There are two predominant soil types here, which distinguish Barolo from the lesser surrounding areas. Compact and fertile Tortonian sandy marls define the vineyards farthest west and at higher elevations. Typically the Barolo wines coming from this side, from La Morra and Barolo, can be approachable relatively early on in their evolution and represent the “feminine” side of Barolo, often closer in style to Barbaresco with elegant perfume and fresh fruit.

On the eastern side of the region, Helvetian soils of compressed sandstone and chalks are less fertile, producing wines with intense body, power and structured tannins. This more “masculine” style comes from Monforte d’Alba and Serralunga d’Alba. The township of Castiglione Falletto covers a spine with both soils types.

The best Barolo wines need 10-15 years before they are ready to drink, and can further age for several decades.

Nebbiolo

View all wine

Responsible for some of the most elegant and age-worthy wines in the world, Nebbiolo, named for the ubiquitous autumnal fog (called nebbia in Italian), is the star variety of northern Italy’s Piedmont region. Grown throughout the area as well as in the neighboring Valle d’Aosta and Valtellina, it reaches its highest potential in the Piemontese villages of Barolo and Barbaresco. This finicky grape and needs a very particular soil type and climate in order to thrive. Outside of Italy, growers are still very much in the experimentation stage but some success has been achieved in parts of California. Tiny amounts are produced in Washington, Virginia, Mexico and Australia.

In the Glass

Nebbiolo at its best is an elegant variety with velveteen tannins, mouthwatering acidity and a captivating perfume. Common characteristcs of a well-made Nebbiolo can include roses, violets, licorice, sandalwood, spicebox, smoke, potpourri, black plum, red cherry and orange peel. Light brick in color, Nebbiolo is a more powerful wine than one might expect, and its firm tannins typically need time to mellow.

Perfect Pairings

Nebbiolo’s love affair with food starts in Piedmont, which is home to the Slow Food movement and some of Italy’s best cuisine. The region is famous for its white truffles, wild boar ragu and tajarin pasta, all perfect companions to Nebbiolo.

Sommelier Secret

If you can’t afford to drink Barolo and Barbaresco every night, try the more wallet-friendly, earlier-drinking Langhe Nebbiolo or Nebbiolo d'Alba. Also search out the fine offerings of the nearby Roero region. North of the Langhe and Roero, find earthy and rustic versions of the variety (known here as “Spanna”) in Ghemme and Gattinara.
