Giacomo Grimaldi

Giacomo Grimaldi is an Italian wine producer based in the Piemonte region of Northern Italy. The winery is known for producing outstanding Barolo, including two crus: Le Coste and Sotto Castello di Novello. The collection of Barolo wines are accompanied by an incredibly elegant Nebbiolo, two Barberas and a Dolcetto d’Alba. The winery was founded in 1930 by Ernesto Grimaldi who later passed the business to Giacomo. At that point in time the majority of the grapes were sold in bulk, leaving only a small portion to be bottled and sold under the family name. In 1996, Feruccio Grimaldi took over the business and moved it in a new direction by producing wine exclusively from the family’s vineyards and growing the land under vine from 1.5 to 10 hectares. Significant attention is now given to the vineyards where green harvesting is frequently practiced to augment the quality of the wine. In the winery, fermentation takes place in temperature controlled rotofermenters before the wine is aged in a combination of small French oak barriques and larger casks. Only 50,000 bottles (on average) are produced per year, including the critically acclaimed Barolo crus that frequently receive great scores from wine critics James Suckling and Antonio Galloni.
