Francesco Rinaldi Barolo Cannubi 2008
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.
Editorial Reviews for Francesco Rinaldi Barolo Cannubi
The nose here is rather fine with light mint, wild herbs, jammy raspberry and lingonberry notes. On the palate, this comes off as rather cool, crisp and focused with fine balance to the herbal notes that sit atop the core of sour and slightly bitter cherry fruit. There’s a really fine acid/tannin balance here. This shows good power on the back end and onto the long, perfumed finish. Exhibits great cut and precision to the flavors with a wonderfully engaging texture. 93pts
