From the iconic Giuseppe Rinaldi, ultra expressive and with superb complexity and concentration, dark fruits, plum, mocha, dried flowers, emerging into elements of damp earth and spice. The tannins are firm and grippy and the finishing is lingering and seductive.

So young but just really tasty. Powerful tannins, savory and fresh incredibly long. Would love to revisit in a decade.

Fantastic! Melted road tar, rose petals... absolutely knock out aromatics...gun smoke, Flint, pipe tabacco and powdered stone. This is a gorgeous bottle of Rinaldi!

Although young, this is soooo sexy right now...wow!!

Had it December 2014, magnum.
Aristocratic, fantastic balance, extraordinarily long. Young, huge freshness, but very enjoyable. I wish I had another dozen of this😭😭❤️❤️

Nose of roses and truffles evolves to dried herbs and balsamic notes. Wonderfully complex in the mouth, with integrated tannins and a long fruit finish. Although this opened up nicely with decanting, it has plenty of years left to evolve. Savor now through 2025.

I was really happy when the table reordered this one last night. Dark fruit from Brunate and crazy structure from Le Coste. Interested to see what he does with his labels post 2010

Should have let this decant overnight. Hinted at greatness, but stayed muted and tannic for hours.

Beautiful vintage for Rinaldi very open & expressive showing a perfumed nose of dark fruits, tar, licorice, menthol, sandalwood, balsamic, dried tea & rose petal.
