Francesco Rinaldi | Piedmont, Italy

The story of Francesco Rinaldi starts in the cellar on the “hill of hills” in the Barolo area; the Cannubi. It’s here that soil of Helvetian and Tortonian type blend together giving those unique flavors and characteristics to the Nebbiolo grape that are only to be found in this strip of land.

A winery where one can sense the family’s passion focused on making the most of the values offered by the Barolo land.

Barolo, Castiglione Falletto, La Morra, three of the most important villages in the Barolo area, three places where Nebbiolo expresses itself to the best, in fragrance and taste, fruit of a soil made up of unique elements. Not a random choice for the winery Francesco Rinaldi: the vineyards, some inherited others bought later on, represent the three faces of the Barolo territory.

Nebbiolo

Italy’s best kept treasure. Nebbiolo produces some of the greatest wines in the world, but is hardly planted outside of its home country. Famous to Italy’s Piedmont region, look for these twin stars that are 100% Nebbiolo: Barolo and Barbaresco. This renowned grape produces glorious red wine containing complex flavors with high acid and tannin, allowing these babies (in the right hands) to age for years to come. Grab yourself a bottle, or three, and see for yourself what these wines can do!

Barolo, Italy

You’ll often hear Barolo associated with some of Italy’s greatest wines. This is because the wine here is grown at altitudes with south-facing slopes (towards the sunlight) allowing the grapes to ripen slowly developing perfumed aromas, sour cherries, herbs, and floral characteristics. Barolo’s are infamous for being the biggest and boldest of the black variety Nebbiolo. In the best years, Barolo will develop high acidity and high tannin with a full body and the potential to continue to develop its characteristics within the bottle. Many Barolo’s will actually benefit in complexity and structure from further bottle aging. These wines can be sourced from different villages or purely from one village, which would then be stated on the label. The best wines here will come from a single-named vineyard or “cru.” In Barolo DOCG, the primary designated area, the wine must be made entirely from the Nebbiolo grape, spend 18 months in oak, and aged for three years before release.
