Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

Vinous – 88

(aged entirely in barriques, 50% of which were new) Bright medium red. Aromatic nose combines plum, chocolate, tobacco, mocha and spicy oak. Sweet, supple and smooth, with the wine’s pronounced chocolatey oakiness obscuring its Barolo character. Rich finishing flavors of cherry and tobacco. [Stephen Tanzer, 11/01/2002]

Robert Parker – 90

Grimaldi’s 1998 Le Coste exhibits a dark garnet color as well as a classic Barolo bouquet of melted road tar, rose petals, cherry syrup, tobacco, and spice box. Deep, textured, full-bodied, with sweet kirsch liqueur-like flavors infused with creosote/tar, and a moderately tannic finish, this old style, intense effort will drink well between 2003-2018.
