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!

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.

From the original cellar with vaults, the work started by Giovanni has been enhanced year after year by his descendants with extension works in the winery at the hand of Luciano and Michele, sons of Francesco Rinaldi, in the sixties. More recently conventional processing in the cellar has been completed with modern technology, optimizing work but at the same time making sure to preserve the uniqueness of our wines. The result is a modern cellar with a traditional taste for meditation. After pressing and fermentation where grapes become wine in a fast and continuous transformation process, the precious liquid moves on to the ‘halls of silence’; cellars dug in the hill, where our Barolo is left to age in Slavonian oak barrels. It’s here that the tale of a grand wine is written; it’s right here where the heart of the winery Francesco Rinaldi beats. A winery where one can sense the family’s passion focused on making the most of the values offered by the Barolo land. The bottling department and warehouse were transferred to Alba in the thirties, a lucky deed by Francesco Rinaldi because the main transport system for bulk goods of those days, the train, had its terminus there.
