Tasting Notes

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?

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.

Antonio Galloni, vinous.com, February 2017

The 2013 Barolo Terlo Vigna Costa Grimaldi is very faithful to the Poderi Luigi Einaudi house style that prizes elegance and tradition. 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. Drink Date 2018 - 2035

Barolo. Tasted blind. Mid ruby with orange tinges. A little reductive and herbal, rather than fruity. Smoky notes. Supple, medium-weight palate fruit but quite stubbornly refusing to open up fully. You can see this come together with further age, though.
