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. – Description from AlexJelena

  • Barolo is the “King” of Italian wines. Its crown, however, has changed during the past 50 years or so. Italy’s wine laws went into effect in the mid-1960’s. At that time Barolo was a DOC wine. There were 3 categories: DOC Regular (Normale), DOC Riserva, and DOC Riserva Speciale. Two years of aging in cask and 13% alcohol was required by all thre... Read More

  • Francesco Rinaldi Nebbiolo d'Alba 2012

    Snoothrank:

    1 year in wood. Fruit from Roddi Rose petals and chalk pop on the nose over a peach base note with a hint of va adding lift to the classic rose hips and raspberry/strawberry in alcohol aromas. Nice raw tannins on entry support lovey burnished sour cherry fruit in the mouth that is framed by hint of watermelon peel, and sandalwood accents. With... Read More

  • Rinaldi Francesco Barbaresco 2010

    Snoothrank:

    2 years in big wood Old wood, rose hips, hints of clove oil come together on the spicy nose along with slightly stewy cherry fruit, very aromatic with some newer wood here as well. Lean, fresh, and precise with tightly wound tannins in the mouth, moderately rich, with a little strawberry note on the backend. This is elegant in the mouth with a s... Read More

  • Francesco Rinaldi Barbera d'Alba 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Hints of ruby red grapefruit, violet, and soil tones all add attractive complexity to the core of black fruit aromas on the nose. Unusually this shows some new wood on the nose. with a lovely texture, this displays fresh. tart red berry fruit on the palate with integrated but bright acids that are very palate cleansing. Theres a little grapefru... Read More

  • Francesco Rinaldi Barolo Cannubi 2010

    Snoothrank:

    This smells women's perfume, all floral and subtly citrusy with a core of plum in alcohol over white soil tones. Really so floral, pretty and pure on the nose, its quite remarkable. Tight, on entry with superb focus, this is fabulous and seamless, if a bit short today. You can feel that this his has big fruit in reserve on the gorgeous, spicy he... Read More

  • Francesco Rinaldi Barolo 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Stemmy, smoky, and dotted with tobacco, baking chocolate, and little coffee notes over a base of beef blood and astringent red fruit, and dried citrus peels. Almost a bit soft on entry, then turning broad and juicy with lots of ripe tannins supporting nice red raspberry and cherry fruit. This is a bit chunky in the mouth with earthy, complex an...
