The Francesco Rinaldi Barolo needs little introduction. The traditionalist estate of Francesco Rinaldi e Figli is one of the greatest names in Piemonte. Located in the town of Barolo itself, the estate has a long and illustrious history in the region. It was founded in 1870, when Francesco Rinaldi inherited a vineyard and house in Barolo, inducing him to leave behind his work with the very large Mirafiore estate and set out on his own. His family at that time also had ties to the then greatest estate in the Barolo region, Barale-Rinaldi. Francesco was the cousin of Giuseppe Rinaldi, and together these two superb family wineries have marched down through time side by side, both upholding the unique, traditional style of Barolo that has also been championed by other great names in Piemonte, such as Bartolo Mascarello and Bruno Giacosa. One hundred and thirty years later, much of the same techniques are still used in the Francesco Rinaldi cellar to produce some of Barolo’s greatest wines. 

Strawberry, red cherry, mint, honey and flowers, something of a soil-like earthiness, liquorice. It’s tight, with an earth and fragrant apple tea character, sage and strawberry, a stony/chalky texture to tannin, bright acidity, and a long firm chalk-dust finish. It’s very Brunate.
