A gorgeous Barolo from 2005 vintage. The cru is Le Coste from Barolo village. The producer is Ferruccio Grimaldi (his hands in the background) from Giacomo Grimaldi winery. Out of magnum, so perfumed intense and charming. The structure is dense, silky. Lovely balance and long finish! Beautiful Barolo!

Inauguration wine to celebrate. Last bottle drank in 2016. Wow cherry still powerful nose slightly candied. Cherry/red fruit plum in a big mouthful/mid palate with tobacco/cloves and smooth tannins. Last long time. Only 1 bottle. Save for Biden re-election victory...

Beautiful Barolo! Very fragrant nose with floral notes and red fruit with wild mushrooms. The palate is big for a Barolo, with raspberry, blackberry and some tartness. Very nice.

Barolo on steroids. Wow. I love it. Perfumed flowers and anise on the nose. Black and red fruits with tobacco and anise on the palate. Nice.
