Francesco Rinaldi & Figli Barolo Cannubi 2018
|Region||Italy, Piedmont, Barolo|
|Brand||Francesco Rinaldi & Figli|
"This delicate Nebbiolo opens to wild berry, rose, pressed violet, earth and powered licorice. The 2018 Barolo Cannubi takes a classic approach and underlines the elegant character of this most celebrated MGA site in the village of Barolo. The wine feels light and weightless when it first hits the palate, but don't be deceived. It offers ample power and length once you take it all in." Monica Larner Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 95 points Drink 2024-43
This has earthy aromas recalling black olive, new leather and ripe dark-skinned fruit that mingle with underbrush and violet. Savory and ripe, the full-bodied palate also has an earthy charm, offering game, truffle, raspberry compote, cherry steeped in spirits, licorice and mint framed in tightly knit, fine-grained tannins. Fresh acidity provides balance.
