We are delighted to offer a single case of one of the greatest wines from the excellent 2019 Barolo vintage, the Barolo Brunate from the iconic Giuseppe Rinaldi. For Aldo Fiordelli of Decanter, this is a perfect wine that merits 100 points and is, quite simply, “The best 2019 tasted”. For lovers of the best that Italy has to offer, it is a tremendous find.
Giuseppe Rinaldi is a legendary producer of Barolo. For Antonio Galloni, “even after having the immense privilege of tasting the very best and rarest wines from pretty much everywhere, my appreciation for the Rinaldi Barolos is stronger than ever. Quite simply these are among the world’s greatest and most iconic wines.” If your collection doesn’t have Rinaldi, it really should.
This 2019 Brunate from Rinaldi is a great wine and one of the finest made here. For Fiordelli it is flawless and, “The elegance of the tannins is great – velvety and dense – with refreshing acidity and polite alcohol” and “This Brunate has gorgeous balance between grace and power that will keep it going for decades”. It affords rare opportunity to buy a noted critic’s best wine from a very strong cohort.
From the best years, Rinaldi is incredibly desirable and in huge demand and very limited supply. There are very cases cases of the Rinaldi Brunate on the market globally for the most important vintages so, given that Fiordelli rates the 2019 Barolo vintage a 5/5 overall, this 2019 is one that will no doubt soon disappear entirely.

100 points Decanter (Aldo Fiordelli)
The 2019 vintage is the first Brunate fully tended by Carlotta and Marta, following their father, Beppe Rinaldi’s death. Typically blended with 15% of the Le Coste MGA for an acid drive, its southern exposure seems to be beneficial in this austere vintage. Fermented in oak vessels with natural yeast and aged for 36 months, the nose is a smorgasbord of details from liquorice and earth to pot pourri and mint leaf. There’s a fresh pomegranate and red cherry core, and a finish of rhubarb and orange peel. The elegance of the tannins is great – velvety and dense – with refreshing acidity and polite alcohol. This Brunate has gorgeous balance between grace and power that will keep it going for decades. The best 2019 tasted. It will be officially presented in April. www.decanter.com
