Luigino Grimaldi Barolo Vigna San Biago 2006

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Liquory, smoky sweet cherry fruit, wild berry jam, integrated wood spice, clean, clear, crisp wine with notes of bitter melon rind, soft tannins, liquory wild raspberry fruit on the palate, a bit simple but suave, finishes a bit short but with nice fresh fruit and crisp fruit tannins, moderately scaled,

The 2006 Grimaldi Luigino Vigna San Biagio Barolo is of a more subtle style than other Barolos, so if you prefer more powerful, in your face wines, this one is probably not for you. The wine is lighter in color, with the classic brownish almondine tint along the edges. The nose presents a bit of rose, berries, tobacco and leather. The taste bursts with rich fruit, with prune/plum sweetness balanced by some cherry acidity, while the warm tannins undergird a clean, delicate finish. For pairings, I think this wine would work well with many of the wonderful dishes of the Piedmont region, and particularly I think this would be perfect with a Fontina cheese risotto, as the acidity of the wine plays off the richness of the cheese. I would rate the one a solid 4, it's an absolutely wonderful wine, but the price leaves a little to be desired – for $45 you can find many truly special wines. Cin cin!
