Rinaldi is one of the great family names of Piemonte, with a winemaking pedigree intertwined with the history of Barolo itself. Franceso Rinaldi founded this estate in 1870 and it is run with a deep reverence for its heritage by the latest generation of Rinaldis.
The winemaking ethos is gloriously traditional, with modern techniques only adopted to nudge the already-stellar bar of quality even higher.
These Barbera grapes are fermented in thermo-controlled steel tanks on the skins for about 20 - 25 days and aged in medium-sized Slavionian oak barrels for 12 months.
The wine shows ripe red fruits of plums and dark red cherry with bright acidity balanced by earthy, forest floor and a good roundness on the palate. it is soft, opulent and powerful.
This is a precise and well-poised Barbera which pairs well with game dishes, roasts or rich tomato-based sauces.
