Francesco Rinaldi Barolo Cannubi Riserva 2016


In stock

SKU: 31315 Categories: ,


The 2016 Barolo Riserva Cannubi is a beautifully fleshed-out and concentrated expression of the finest Barolo with black and purple fruits, cherry and violet nuances and hints of liquorice and tar. Once again, palate texture plays an important role in expressing the the power and momentum of this wine. But like the maiden 2013 and the 2015 follow-up, this 2016 Riserva also reveals an incredibly fine and delicate Grand Cru like focus, puurity and precision with touches of wood smoke, ash, blood orange, mint leaf and salty black licorice over hints of black cherry liquor, potpourri and aniseed spice. Quite simply a thoroughly seductive, spellbinding wine. Drink from 2024 to 2045+. 97/100 Greg Sherwood MW

Producer Information: Francesco Rinaldi

The traditionalist estate of Francesco Rinaldi e Figli is one of the greatest names in Piemonte. Located in the town of Barolo itself, the estate has a long and illustrious history in the region. It was founded in 1870, when Francesco Rinaldi inherited a vineyard and house in Barolo, inducing him to leave behind his work with the very large Mirafiore estate and set out on his own. His family at that time also had ties to the then greatest estate in the Barolo region, Barale-Rinaldi. 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 that has also been championed by other great names in Piemonte, such as Bartolo Mascarello and Bruno Giacosa.
