2016 Francesco Rinaldi Barolo Cannubi
What The Critics Say
92-95/100 Vinous, Antonio Galloni
"The 2016 Barolo Cannubi brings together all the best elements of the year with the natural pedigree of this site. Fresh and vibrant in the glass, with terrific underlying structure, the Cannubi is a Barolo of captivating aromatic intensity and drive that is shaping up to be a real beauty. In 2016, hail was a factor. The estate opted to use some of the affected fruit in the straight Barolo, which then had the effect of lowering production for the single vineyard wine by about 30%. As for the wine itself, well, it is pretty stellar."
17/20 JancisRobinson.com, Walter Speller (2014 vintage)
"Barolo. Tasted blind. Mid to deep ruby with orange tinges. Balsamic lifted cherry nose with hints of cardamom pod. Minty cherry and raspberry fruit and bags of coating tannins. It will need more time for the whole to come together. Chewy, long finish that is just medium bodied. (WS)." Drink 2019 - 2026
91/100 Wine Enthusiast (2014 vintage)
"Iris, clove and wild berry aromas align with a whiff of camphor. On the elegant medium-bodied palate, refined tannins and bright acidity provide support for Marasca cherry, crushed raspberry and licorice." Drink 2020 - 2026
