⭐️90+/100⭐️ Francesco Rinaldi & Figli Barolo “Cannubi”, 2015 📍Barolo, Piemonte, Italy🇮🇹 🍇 100% Nebbiolo ⚡️14% Tasted: December 2020 This lovely winery was founded in 1870 by Francesco Rinaldi and was quickly established as one the great, well-respected houses of the region. Francesco was the cousin of Giuseppe Rinaldi, and together these two superb family wineries have marched down through time side by side, both upholding the unique, traditional style of Barolo. 150 years later, the winery still carries the traditional winemaking techniques with steel tank-fermentation, long maceration and aging in big Slavonian oak “botti” for 3 years (no new oak included) prior to bottling. Being traditionalists doesn’t mean being “lost in the past” - like for many great wineries, today’s wines have never shown higher quality with focus on sustainable/organic viticulture. The small Cannubi-vineyard, located just north from the town of Barolo, is perhaps the most famous “wine hill” in Italy, being the foundation of some of most celebrated and prestigious wines of Barolo. It’s also the oldest official cru of Italy, given the recognition in 1752. Specifically, Rinaldi’s surface areas lie in: - Cannubi Boschis (northern part) - vines from 1967
- Cannubi (central part) - vines from 1990. Recommending 2 hours decanting: The bouquet is on fire with generous ripe fruit aromas - clear fresh strawberry, dried cranberry and raspberry jam. Lots of flower power focusing on lavender, rose and violet petals, finishing with sweet dark liquorice and hints of tar, wet clay and acetone. The palate is rich without being full-bodied with big, chewy tannins and great acidity - it’s not super developed yet, but really elegant and fine with notes of fresh cherry, raspberry, raw liquorice and cloves finishing with menthol and mild balsamico.
