Amazing wine. Cigar box, tobacco, dark fruit, earth, velvety texture. Everything you'd want.

These are effortless for the drinker. Pure, deep red fruit with freshness and detail to spare. Shows the structure one expects with younger Barolo, yet as a generous approachability not seen in the average bottle. Aromatically, this is about as good as it gets. The fresh roses & strawberries just envelop the nose unrelentingly. Rinaldi delivers- always.

Balsamic volatility with elegant structure. Underbrush, truffle, roses and an increasing amount of sappy dark chocolate. Ripe, almost resinous, but packed lots of finesse.

Traditional Barolo early in the drinking window. Hard to stay away from my other bottles. Very appealing!

Started out a little funky with a slight curry and old furniture but started to blow off and developed into a classic Barolo with dried cherry, Rosemary, tobacco and rose petal. Still a baby and needs more time. I am a big fan of this producer!
