The smell is ethereal, wide and embracing with scents of rose, violet and soft balmy notes.
Its colour is ruby garnet red with slightly orange reflections after ageing.
The taste of Francesco Rinaldi Barolo Brunate is dry, austere, flavorful and harmonious, with good concentrations of phenolic compounds due to a significant amount of microelements such as potassium and magnesium.
Fermentation takes place in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks with an automatic pump-over system for a period of 25-30 days. The wine is refi ned for at least three years in large-capacity (5,000 liters) Slavonian oak barrels.
This inter-municipal vineyard has been recognized as one of the most important crus in the municipalities of Barolo and La Morra. It boasts an exceptional southern and southeastern exposure and an altitude between 250 and 350 meters in the central part of the subzone. The soil is prevalently limestone-clay and its slightly sandy composition gives the wine an elegant bouquet with fruity and spicy notes.
It matches very well with red and braised meat, game and cheese. The suggested serving temperature is 16° – 18°C.
