Giuseppe Rinaldi Barolo Brunate le Coste 2009

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Smoky on the nose with deep notes of wild berry confiture topped with soil, tobacco, and rosebud aromas. This is dense, polished, and spicy on entry with wild berry fruit that shows a forest floor edge. Very tight today but with fabulous balance, this exhibits ripe tannins and integrated acids in a very elegantly balanced, if large scaled entry turning finer on the finish. No doubt that this needs time to knit together, but already shows excellent length, and lovely clarity on the back end, if a bit of heat on the finish. 93pts

This has shockingly evolved nose right out of the battle with lots of sweet old wood, a little dirty and funky, lots of cured pork, with a bit of hay and quinine adding complexity. The dirty aromas blow off quickly revealing a tight core of wild yellow cherry fruit and dried citrus pith, with a balsamic note. This is showing superb freshness on the palate, full of red fruit and orange peel flavors that are nice and fresh, really transparent and high toned on the palate, with lovely, very ripe soft tannins on the finish which shows bright tart cherry fruit. This is very 2009 in that it is really almost ready but with classic flavors and structure. A very good 2009 that is a little light on the palate at this point. 91pts

Rinaldi's 2003 Barolo BrunateLe Coste is deeply flavored and intense with more than enough fruit to balance its tannic structure. The characteristic balsamic notes that are typical of this wine literally jump out of the glass. This seriously long and powerful Barolo is also remarkably accessible and is a great introduction to one of Piedmont's great wines. When tasted separately the different qualities of the two vineyards are striking. Brunate provides the muscle and complexity while Le Coste gives the wine a measure of softness. Anticipated maturity 2009-2019. Wine Advocate 173
