Francesco Rinaldo Barolo 2014 DOCG - Piedmont, Italy


The Story

The great traditionalist estate of Francesco Rinaldi e Figli is one of the greatest names in Piemonte. Located in the town of Barolo itself, the domaine of Francesco Rinaldi has a long and illustrious history in the region. A seriously complex Barolo from a traditional house. The Rinaldi family has a long history in Barolo and this classic Barolo expresses their old school approach. It is sourced from sites across the region in the traditional way, employing this roundness and nuance in a restrained and complex style touted by Rinaldi himself for its 'austerity' -- meaning less fruit-driven and more about savoury structure. Eminently food friendly and approachable even now, this unique offering is like a super-fine Barolo of yesteryear.

M+Q Notes

This has a core of fruit with a hint of darkness then masses of sweet tobacco notes, camphor, watermelon, and balsamic character, real intensity and character here, There's also some wood here adding a brown sugar sweetness. This is quite ready compared to the crus, round and almost velvety with layered red cherry, tobacco, and small green herbal flavors. Gentle tannins and juicy acids are in fine balance, this is precise and pure. A really fine example of this wine.
