Francesco Rinaldi Barbera d'Alba 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

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

Francesco Rinaldi & Figli:
The company was founded in 1870, when our grandfather, Giovanni, left Diano d'Alba and walked to Barolo, where he had just inherited a vineyard and a house.As he was a fine wine-dresser, he was immediately conquered by the subtle charm of these hills. Some years later he was supported by the help of his sons and today the business is run by his descedants, who love this evocative little world jus like he did.
