Giuseppe Rinaldi Dolcetto d’Alba DOC 2017

Estate: Iconic, legendary, 5th generation winemaker Giuseppe “Beppo” Rinaldi was renowned for his strict adherence to traditional methods and crafting some of the greatest Barolo. Uncompromising and nicknamed “Citrico” [citric] for his pointed, harsh comments, he was one of the most respected winemakers in Piemonte. His daughters Carlotta and Marta had been working alongside him, today they head the renowned estate. The 6 hectares of organically farmed vineyards are spread across of the most famous crus of Barolo: Cannubi, Brunate, Le Coste, and Ravera. In addition to Nebbiolo, other indigenous Piemonte varietals are grown; Barbera, Dolcetto, Ruchè and Freisa.

Winemaking: Fermented with indigenous yeasts, unfiltered.

Tasting Notes: Red violet in colour, with aromas of black cherry, red grape, flinty minerality, fig, white pepper and a trace of vanilla bean. Pomegranate, plum, black cherry, tobacco and crushed black peppercorn are framed by grippy tannins and fresh acidity. A bitter streak accents blackberry, black currant and dark chocolate on the plush finish. Velvety, refined, sumptuous.
