Giuseppe Rinaldi Brunate Riserva Selezionata 1980

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Intensely earthy and powerful on the nose with a huge roasted coffee tone to the core of black cherry fruit with hints of dried pine adding a hint of complexity and freshness. This is a big wine, and amazingly youthful. The fruit flavors are wild and intense, rich with raspberry and strawberry notes and picking up incipient truffle, black spie and blue fruit accents on the palate. This is seriously structured but you miss the acid and tannins on the first go’round due to the impressive concentration of fruit here. Obviously from a warmer site and rather typical of Brunate, this still has years of positive development in front of it. 92pts
