Founded in 1930, this small winery has grown step by step, producing a select number of wines. In no hurry. It released the first bottles of its own in 1996. Three Barolos. Two crus: Le Coste, one of the most important in the entire Barolo area and owned by the Grimaldi family since 1930; the other, the unique Sotto Castello di Novello, made with grapes grown on various plots purchased by Ferruccio Grimaldi, who was fascinated by the area and its excellent aspect. The third is a classic, traditional Barolo made from grapes grown in Barolo.

These are accompanied by a beautifully finessful Nebbiolo from the Valmaggiore vineyard in the Roero area, on the left bank of the Tanaro river. And two Barberas, one aged in wood and the other to be drunk young. Lastly there is a Dolcetto d'Alba which bears all the finesse of these hills. All from little plots of land pieced together with dedication and the knowledge that the vineyard is what makes the wine.

Barolo Le Coste
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.

Vigneto: Le Coste
Barolo SottoCastello di Novello
The wonderful result of Ferruccio Grimaldi’s winegrowing skills: mouthfilling and densely textured in the glass, the nose is redolent of violets, plum, blueberries, fruit preserve, and liquorice, while the palate is a lasting experience with a finish that seems to go on forever.

Vigneto: Sotto Castello
A traditional Barolo: broad, warm, velvety, caressing, balsamic and lingering, the result of grapes from two decidedly interesting vineyards.

Vigneti: Barolo
Nebbiolo d'Alba Vigna Valmaggiore
A Nebbiolo with an incredibly elegant bouquet, a wonderful blend of raspberry and violet, warm, full and intense. A long bouquet and good legs. An interplay of tannins and acidity, balance and structure. The elegance of a wine from another era.

Vigneti: Valmaggiore
Barbera d'Alba Pìstin
You need to be pistìn, or fussy, to make a good Barbera, grandpa Ernesto used to say. Ferruccio Grimaldi has taken this on board to create this territorial, fresh, clean, polished, genuine Barbera.

Vigneti: Monforte e Novello
Barbera d'Alba Fornaci
An elegant, concentrated and juicy Barbera, with a nose of ripe fruit, black cherry, morello cherry and spices, thanks to barrel ageing of fruit from a cru in Monforte d'Alba which makes one of the most interesting versions of this historic Piedmontese variety.

Vigneti: Fornaci
Dolcetto d'Alba
Simple, fresh, clean, easy drinking: one of the wines that evokes this land at first taste.
