Top Barbera Tasted 5/13

16. Francesco Rinaldi Barbera d'Alba (2011)

« Prev Next » 16 of 17
Botte for one year, from plots in La Morra, Novello, and Barolo, all told makes 7000 bottles A bit buttery at first, then turning savory and intense with clean, fresh aromas of , ivy with some soapy floral tones layered under brambly berry fruit framed with hints of violets, mace and nutmeg. Wonderfully pure and fairly intense in the mouth if not particularly complex, this is very vinous with lots of brambly fruit and a savory dark ripeness. Made in a rather dry firm, very classic and somewhat rustic style this finishes with great length and a gentle sweetness, probably the sweetness of alcohol. 90pts
