STORY BEHIND THIS WINE
After inheriting a pristine plot of land in the heart of Barolo, Francesco Rinaldi’s family estate was first founded back in 1870. However, Francesco’s family wasn’t new to the winemaking game; his cousin, Giuseppe Rinaldi, was also producing great Piemontese reds that were completely shaking up the scene. Today, F. Rinaldi wines are produced only from organic fruit and are some of the best deals coming out of the region’s top growing sites. His Barolo is structured and terroir-reflective, noted with flavors of red fruit, leather, and roses. Read more.
"The 2015 Barolo is gracious, airy and light on its feet. Sweet tobacco, cedar, dried cherry, spice and licorice are all nicely lifted in a sensual, open-knit Barolo that will drink well right out of the gate. All the elements fall into place effortlessly. Rinaldi's straight Barolo is a terrific wine in its peer group." Antonio Galloni
