Giribaldi Barolo DOCG 2015
- Textured, savoury
- Barolo DOCG
For three generations, the Giribaldi family have been making small amounts of wine in Piemonte, Italy. Literally the entire family is involved in the business in some capacity. It’s been twenty years since they converted their vineyards to fully organic practices, earning certification shortly thereafter.
Giribaldi sources nebbiolo for this Barolo from two organic vineyards, one in Ravera and the other in Cerviano Merli. The wine then spends two years in large format French oak casks before bottling. It is orange brick in colour after a few years with a nose of strawberries, cherries and white pepper. On the palate there are hints of vanilla, red fruits, subtle spice and the drying tannins generally associated with Barolo. 2015 was a classic vintage for Barolo and this organic example exemplifies the complexity, balance and ageworthiness typical of the year.
“Dried strawberry and cherry with some nutmeg, hazelnut and other spice on the nose, following through to a full body with layers of fruit and tannins and a long, long finish. This is very structured and powerful.”

These are the wines dreams are made of, from the foggy little tough-skinned nebbiolo grape and the beautiful region of truffles and rolling hillsides. In these dreams lives the hauntingly long flavours and "peacock tail"-like tannins that bring a kaleidoscope of ever-evolving experience to the taste buds, and conversation to the table. To me, where Burgundy falls short so often, Barolo is rarely not worth the money. In fact, once you experience a good vintage with the right amount of age, it's hard not to justify the coin.
