Barolo Brunate, Giuseppe Rinaldi 2012
Multifaceted aromas of rose, iris, leather, cranberry, truffle and the barest hint of game lead the nose. The radiant palate offers creamy strawberry, ripe red cherry, orange zest, baking spice, dried herb and tobacco alongside firm but polished tannins. Fresh acidity provides balance while a mineral vein energizes the finish. With its smooth texture, it's already tempting but hold for even more complexity. Drink 2018–2026.

A mix of sour cherry, raspberry, spice and tobacco leaf flavors highlights this light-footed, silky red. Firmly structured, with a lining of dusty tannins on the lingering finish. Ripe yet fresh. Best from 2018 through 2035. 550 cases made.

Mid ruby with a bright orange rim. Subdued nose hinting at leafy cherry and a touch of leather. Super-elegant palate and fragrant fruit with a firm core of tannins. Burgundian in style. Gripping, grainy finish with perfumed fruit. 2018 - 2032
