Outstanding finesse. Visible structure and texture.An austere, noble red with a deep, broad nose, hints of soft fruit, spices and dried flowers…On the palate it immediately unleashes the full power of the great Barolos and the velvety texture of its long ageing. Destined for eternity.
Wine Advocate 93 points - The estate’s 2004 Barolo Le Coste is the most ample and full-bodied of these Barolos. It exhibits a gorgeous expression of blueberries, spices, menthol and sweet toasted oak on a structured, layered frame. Today it comes across as fairly austere, but it should develop nicely with another year or two of bottle age. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2019.” (Dec 2007)
Owned by the Grimaldi family since 1930, Le Coste is a historic Barolo cru, long considered one of the most important in the area. As far back as the 19th century the wine made here was blended with that made in the Cannubi vineyards. South-west facing with chalky clay soil: a timeless classic that yields beautifully polished wines.
