Poderi Luigi Einaudi Barolo Costa Grimaldi 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Tight and deep on the nose which is both very floral and very raw, bright with camphor and a hint of wood spice along with roses and red beryl fruit. Very cool and finely textured in the mouth, really a gorgeous texture so bright and fresh and light on the palate with slow to emerge red plum, wild cherry and spice flavors. The tannins start building on the midpalate and pile on the moderately long finish. Perhaps a bit uncomplicated but elegant and nervy with precision and length, none. This is more driven by acids than tannins. 92pts

A bit sweet but with nice fruit, spicy, soft mint, a touch of baking spice, soft and indistinct in the mouth, a nice seedy note. Fruit is clean and fresh, nice feeling mid-palate, transparent with deep, wild dark berry fruit, tight finish, nicely done if a bit boring. (84-85pts)

Smokey yet high toned and perfumed with layered notes of cherry pits, dried flowers and spice tones. Bright and fresh in the mouth with lively acids in a somewhat easy style yet with wonderfully pure and fresh fruit. Really lovely integration here and the wood is offering only a spice note with tannins that are extremely well managed. 91pts

A bit reticent on the nose and showing some new wood but still lean and attractively focused. In the mouth this is very polished and tight with nice fruit but the tannins really clamp down cutting the finish short and leaving you with a bit of wood spice finale. 88pts

Ripe fruit and barely on the nose follow through to a full body with round and chewy tannins and lots of new wood on the finish. Needs time to come together in the bottle. James Suckling.

The 2007 Barolo Costa Grimaldi is fabulously rich, dense and well-balanced in this vintage.

The 2000 Barolo Grimaldi, expressive in aroma with sensations of iris, violets, and mint, is already rather silky in texture but fresh and long as well, sustained on the mid-palate and finish and with...
