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 Cannubi is dry, moderately tannic, full-bodied and robust.
Fermentation takes place in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks with automatic pump-over systems for a period of 25-30 days. The wine is refined for at least three years in large-capacity (5,000 liters) Slavonian oak barrels.
This historical vineyard, among the most esteemed in the Barolo area, features a mixture of Tortonian and Helvetian soils from different geological eras, imparting a unique complexity and richness to the soil. The high sand content gives the wine an intense bouquet which is fruity when it is young, but which develops spicier tones as it evolves.
It matches very well with red and braised meat, game and cheese. The suggested serving temperature is 16° – 18°C.
