Barolo Tre Tine 2013 Giuseppe Rinaldi
This is a soft and sensual wine with long silkiness and smooth finesse. The 2013 Barolo Tre Tine offers less pulp and obvious fruit. Instead, the bouquet has already taken off towards ethereal aromas of cola, licorice and balsam herb. This wine is more immediate and less nervous next to the 2013 Barolo Brunate (that needs more time to relax). Yet, the Barolo Tre Tine already shows promising complexity and nuance. The firmness of the tannins at the back, however, remind you that this is a wine built to last.

This sleek red balances aromas of rose, ripe cherry and berry fruit, leather, herb and iron flavors and a full, supportive structure. Stays fresh and focused on the lingering, mineral-tinged aftertaste.
