2016 Francesco Rinaldi Barolo Cannubi (750ml) Pre-Arrival15
"The 2016 Barolos from Francesco Rinaldi are very nicely done. They are also among the most open, accessible 2016s I tasted, which will no doubt come as a surprise to readers used to the super-austere wines of the past. Perhaps the 2016s will close down in bottle, but today, these classically built Barolos are surprisingly accessible.
"The 2016 Barolo Cannubi shows all of the raciness of this site to great effect. Crushed flowers, mint, spice and red berry fruit fill out the layers as this pliant, silky Barolo shows off its considerable allure. Soft edges (for a young Barolo) give the Cannubi notable immediacy and tons of sheer appeal. The Cannubi is a wine of pure pleasure." 94 points - Antonio Galloni (Vinous, October 2020)
