Light to medium red with slight bricking. Great maturing nebbiolo nose of plum, orange zest, anise, black pepper and a bit of animal fur. Sour cherries with rose petal, minerals and tobacco box on the palate. Firm structure with a great tannic to acid balance. This wine certainly has a future ahead of it.

The 1996 Francesco Rinaldi e Figli Barolo Cannubbio showed very rustic, yet highly enjoyable to a lover of traditional Barolo. The nose showed dusty cherry with animal musk and hints of mushroom and undergrowth. On the palate, I found dark sweet fruit with leather and tobacco leading to a medium finish with drying tannins. This bottle could use more time but is enjoyable now with proper decanting. (89 points)

Wood and smoke, forest floor, faded roses - sound poetic? A traditional Barolo from a producer who mourns the special connection with the land that he believes has been eradicated by technology. G. Rinaldi uses a ripasso of Barbera skins to add extra breadth to his Barolos, The Barolos from the Brunate vineyards, located along the southern boundary of La Morra, are known especially for their generous structure. That said, while this wine demonstrates all the descriptive language above - it is still a youngster and only at the start of its evolution.
