"The Francesco Rinaldi & Figli 2016 Barolo shows sweet and ripe fruit with distant aromas of wild strawberry, forest berry and a hint of dried prune. The standard blending formula for this classic Barolo sees fruit from six vineyard parcels, including some from the celebrated Cannubi cru that is most strongly identified with this estate. This vintage awards some added softness and fruitiness that goes a long way to create a long and silky mouthfeel."

"The 2016 Barolo is gracious and lifted, with lovely sweet red cherry and floral overtones. Silky tannins give this mid-weight Barolo a good bit of immediacy. Translucent and super-expressive, the 2016 is a model of pure and total class. Vineyard sites are a stellar collection of parcels from Rocche dell'Annunziata, Boiolo, Sarmassa, Vignane, Codana and a touch of Cannubi. In recent years, Rinaldi's straight Barolo has been one of the real under the radar gems in the region. The 2016 has the potential to be an overachiever."
