Francesco Rinaldi Barolo Cannubi 1990

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Starting with this young pup we exercized our sense with it's typical notes of sour cherry, leather, birch barch, and sandy soil tones all edged in a slight funk. Medium full in the mouth with great acidity for a 90 and still lots of bristling tannins to challange the palate and absolutely slam down on the finish. The mid-palate has a great front end with tons of strawberry fruit and dark tarry notes that extend with time and finishing with a subtle finale of pine cone and church candle this has all the goods to be an excellent bottle but it needs time, say 2012-2028

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.
