Grown in sandy clay soils with southern exposure, these grapes are then handpicked and vinified in stainless steel. The resulting wine is packed with ample fruit flavors and an alluring spiciness. Rich enough to drink with roasted quail and creamy polenta

Giacomo Grimaldi was founded in 1930 by Ernesto Grimaldi and has passed down through the generations since then.

In 1996 Ferruccio Grimaldi decided to continue the family wine business. He began acquiring vineyards of Nebbiolo in the most prestigious Barolo zones, firmly convinced of the great potential of Barolo wine. The family’s vines grew from 1,5 hectares to 10 hectares. The current vineyards are situated in the communes of Barolo, Novello and Monforte.

In the vineyard, there is significant attention and a deep devotion to the care of the vines. Ferruccio is renowned amongst other wine makers for his ‘perfectionism’ in caring for the plants. Green harvest is vital to him, as it yields a better quality.

Piedmont is the most "Frenchified" of all Italian wine regions. The long valleys of the Alpine foothills lead to easier travel to France's southern coast and inland than to the rest of Italy. It is perhaps for this reason that the Piedmontese have long practiced the most refined wine traditions of any Italian region. Terroir-based wisdom trickled down from early French masters (monks, typically) to this area.
Known mostly for their reds (but producing some excellent whites,) from the early ripening Dolcetto grape to the lofty, deep reds of Barolo and Barbaresco crafted from the Nebbiolo grape, these wines are clearly crafted using centuries of terroir-based winemaking.
