Barolo Brunate Giuseppe Rinaldi 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"I tasted two casks of 2010 Barolo Brunate. The first is pure Brunate, and it is magnificent, with expressive inner perfume and layers of sweet, resonant fruit that captivate all the senses. Pure seduction. The second cask is mostly Brunate with some Le Coste blended in. This is a much darker, powerful and structured Barolo, with huge tannins and big, broad shoulders. This first cask is outstanding, but the second is truly magnificent. I can't wait to taste the 2010 once it has been bottled. From cask, the component wines are insanely vivid ant thrilling. This is the essence of Barolo...94-97" AG 01/14

Camphor, sliced plum, and dark cherry fruit greet the nose followed by hints of cocoa, mineral and subtle smoke notes. Really a super fine, fresh and focused Brunate nose. Classic Brunate on the palate as well with layers of dried wild cherry fruit wrapped around the core of fine grained tannins leading to a long finish of burnished fruit and and spiced tobacco notes. There’s a slight hole in the middle today, but that should fill out with a bit of age. 92pts

Deeply musky and earthy on the nose with hints of herb, rose petals, sliced cherry fruit, and, sweet tobacco on the nose. Round and opulent with mouth filling ripe tannins adding volume to the rich core of dark, high toned prune and tart red fruits. the backend turns tart and a bit savory with notes of cherry stems and dusty tannins. This is packed with stuffing and is going to explode one day but it will remain an elegant wine more notable for complexity than power. There is a bit of VA here that might be bothersome to some palates. 94pts
