NOTES BY OUR SOMMELIERS
👁 transparent garnet red colour;
👃🏻 on the nose the aromas are warm and open, tending towards ripe fruits and black spices;
👄 on the palate the palate captures the attention for the important structure that rests on silky, velvety, very pleasant tannins. Very long finish.
This Barolo is a truly excellent wine, endowed with great persistence, complexity and balance. It favours intense, succulent dishes; it is an excellent accompaniment to roasts, braised meats, game and savoury cheeses.
WINE-MAKING AND REFINEMENT
This Barolo Bricco Ambrogio is made from nebbiolo grapes cultivated and harvested with great care: careful selection of the grapes from the months preceding the harvest, which is done manually in boxes from the end of September to mid-October. Vinification is pure with temperature-controlled fermentation and long maceration on the skins, from 20 to 30 days, sometimes with submerged cap. Malolactic fermentation in steel and cement, ageing for at least 24-30 months in large Slavonian oak casks and some French oak tonneaux.

The winery is located in Serralunga d'Alba, in the heart of the Langhe, a Unesco heritage site since 2014. It is a land of ancient wine-growing traditions, where wine was already known before the arrival of the Romans. The Empire brought great contributions to viticulture, including the deforestation of a large part of the Langhe, which was then covered by thick forest. The Langhe are subdivided into Alta and Bassa Langa: the latter lies to the north between the Tanaro and Belbo rivers and is recognised the world over for prestigious wines such as Barolo and Barbaresco as well as Pelaverga, Dolcetto d'Alba and di Dogliani and Nebbiolo and Barbera. The Alta Langa, on the other hand, is located further south and has steeper hills reaching up to 750 m; Alta Langa, Moscato and Barbera and the rare Timorasso are produced here. In particular, Alta Langa, thanks to the cultivation of chardonnay and pinot noir, has managed over the years to produce Classical Method and Charmat sparkling wines that are renowned nationally and internationally. The soils of the Langhe are composed of clayey-calcareous sedimentary marls, interspersed with layers of more or less important grey-blue marls, an important characteristic for producing both full-bodied red wines and fresh, fragrant bubbles. The Langhe area is characterised by a temperate continental climate, with the peak of rainfall generally fixed during the month of May.
In 1957, Giacomo Grimaldi started selling grapes and Giovanni Grimaldi switched to making wine and selling it in bulk in the 1960s. And it was precisely Giovanni who built the cornerstones of the family and the company: he was very attentive to winemaking, respecting the vineyard and the wine; he already bottled the best vintages, thus creating an important 'history', and he valued the vineyard and the grapes. In 1990 a new phase began: Bruna Grimaldi and her husband Franco Fiorino brought enthusiasm and new knowledge to the company. Vineyards are purchased in targeted areas in order to produce wines only from their own grapes. The new cellar is built, the work is perfected and Bruna Grimaldi wines begin to be offered on new markets.
