Giuseppe Rinaldi Barolo Brunate le Coste 2001
92-95 points Stephen Tanzer (International Wine Cellar): Clear medium red. Perfumed, liqueur-like aromas of redcurrant, brown spices and rose petal. Highly concentrated, with strong fruit but also a lovely light touch, thanks to strong acidity. Complex inner-mouth flavors of flowers, tobacco and mocha. Finishes with firm tannins and lovely grip. Offers very strong potential. Organic/biodynamic (not certified).
Editorial Reviews for Giuseppe Rinaldi Barolo Brunate le Coste
Offering up superb aromatics of wild raspberry and light tobacco edged with nuances of smoke and seashell this is lovely on the nose and the big, sweetly fruited almost jammy fruit in the mouth is a bit surprising coming from F. Rinaldi whose wines can be very difficult in their youth. Really fresh and crisp feeling with a deep, dense core this offers up mineral, menthol and tobacco notes on the long finish.
