Overview of the Wine
Growing grapes and crafting high quality wines have always been Bruna Grimaldi’s family tradition. Born and raised in the hills that link Grinzane Cavour to Serralunga d’Alba, in the heart of Langhe, Unesco World Heritage, Bruna Grimaldi is a small family-owned winery that since the early 60s produce authentic and terroir-driven wines. Careful work in the vineyard, commitment in the winery, respect for the environment are key aspects of Bruna Grimaldi’s philosophy: a passion for wine that has been handed down for decades in Langhe region where the best plots are selected for the production of Barolo. This history talks about the territory, in full respect of the tradition.

The estate farms organically 14ha (34 acres) of vineyards in the Barolo region and in the neighbouring villages. Bruna and her husband Franco have been recently joined by their son Simone, enologist, and Martina, who both proudly represent the fourth generation and whose aim is to continue the family tradition of producing soulful wines.

Winemaker's Tasting Notes
This wine represents the harmony and the balance of a traditional Barolo. The aromas are ample and floral with nuances of spices, raspberry, cranberry and rose. The palate is gentle and silky with fine tannins balanced with the typical structure which, for those who love the energy of Barolo, can be appreciated in youth but reaches its best expression with a few years of bottle age. It pairs well with rich dishes such as ravioli, mushroom risotto, roasted and grilled meat, game, stew and matured cheese. Serving at: 60-64°F. Certified Organic.

93 Points - James Suckling
Lovely, sweet aromas of flowers and ripe fruit follow through to a full body. Yet, it’s so focused and refined with polish and panache that makes it so alluring now. Better in 2021.

93 Points - Wine Enthusiast 
Camphor, wild rose, botanical herb and star anise aromas form the nose. Focused and polished, the linear palate offers juicy sour cherry, cranberry, licorice and a hint of nutmeg, while fine-grained tannins and fresh acidity provide elegant support. Best 2022–2030.

91 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2015 Barolo Camilla reveals two sides of the Nebbiolo coin: You get plenty of rich primary fruit on the one hand, with slightly evolved tertiary notes on the other. This Barolo represents a pretty intersection between those two sides, and the convergence of aromas is ultimately what gives this wine its complexity. I would suggest a near or medium-term drinking window. Some 17,000 bottles were produced.
