Fermentation takes place in temperature-controlled tanks and is combined with long skin-contact maceration which last 20-30 days, sometimes with submerged cap management. Malolactic fermentation is carried out in stainless steel and concrete tanks. The wine is aged in big Slavonian oak barrels and French oak tonneaux for minimum 24-30 months.
This wine represents an appellation-wide blend of fruit from Raviole and Borzone (in Grinzane Cavour), Roere di Santa Maria (in La Morra), San Lorenzo di Verduno (in Verduno), Bricco Ambrogio (in Roddi) and Badarina (in Serralunga d'Alba). However, in 2019, a hailstorm destroyed most of the crop from Raviole, so that cru does not feature here. The Bruna Grimaldi 2019 Barolo Camilla opens to medium-dark intensity. The bouquet is a bit closed, even reduced, but you do get black cherry, cassis and red licorice. This concludes with dry tannins. 20,000 bottles were released. Anticipated Maturity: 2024-2035
