The gorgeous, hilly vineyards are located in Verduno, in the very north-east of Italy. These steep slopes are highly suited to the production of Nebbiolo grapes. These beautiful, picturesque vineyards are south-west facing at an altitude of 300 meters above sea level the soils are a unique mix of calcareous-clay with white marl adding extra mineral character and freshness to the wine. Aged for 18 months in large oak barrels and kept in the natural cellars underneath Pietro Rinaldi estate, this wine is perfect for drinking now. Intense aroma of ripe blackberries and plums supported by luscious undergrowth. Excellent Barolo, elegant and complex, with noticeable but integrated tannins, and a fresh, long, enveloping finish.

Red fruits, dried herb, almond, roses, and a light dusting of pepper. It’s supple and graceful in style, fine brick dust tannin, a bit of succulence here, and again that distinct almond flavour, subtle mushroom-like earthiness, orange peel, and a fresh and long finish with some rusty tannin and herb and rose perfume. Distinctive. Much to like here.
