Bruna Grimaldi Barolo Badarina 2015

Serralunga, Cuneo, Piedmont, ItalyBadarina is the Grimaldi family's symbolic vineyard, as Bruna's mother was born in that village, and summarizes the power and minerality that she believes characterizes Serralunga d’Alba. From 450m, this grows in white marls and limestone, with clays and a sandstone base. After a month-long ferment and maceration, this aged 30 months in large Slavonian oak and French tonneaux, with additional time in bottle before release. Quite expressive and present, with medicinal kissed cherry scenting a base of leather and tar, perfumed black plum, roses, and dark earth. Tannins are firm and grippy. The whole is quite elegant and fresh, with depth and an alluring charm. Drinking beautifully now and will continue for the next 5+ years in the cellar.Tasted: 30 October 2020Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 78.99 private wine shops Producer: Bruna GrimaldiDistributors: Minimalism Wines
