Wine Spectator: 93
"Big and chewy, showing lots of plum and berry character, with hints of wood on the nose. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a medium finish. Youthful. Still needs time to come out. Outstanding. Be patient." (2007)
Robert Parker: 90-92
"The saturated ruby-colored 1996 Barolo Costa Grimaldi is a full-bodied, husky, hefty wine with gorgeous aromas of roasted nuts, cherries, dried herbs, licorice, and flowers. This ripe, rich, huge Barolo will require 7-8 years of cellaring." (Aug 1999)
