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.

OK, nothing special. Cherry raisins, a little muted on the fruit. Some leather and earth. I expected more from this producer, even from a dolcetto.

Deep red-ruby. Nobly rustic aromas of medicinal black cherry, chocolate and black tea. Rich, lush and layered, with dark chocolate and cherry flavors complicated by earth and herbs. Elegant and seamless wine, at once layered and light on its feet. The firm tannins arrive late, allowing the medicinal cherry and intriguing soil tones to gain in sweetness and take on an even creamier texture.

The grapes were hand-picked at the end of September & underwent a 10 day long fermentation process in stainless steel tanks & then aged in Slovenian oak casks for a few months. This is a dry but fruit driven Dolcetto.
