2017 giuseppe rinaldi, langhe, nebbiolo
Why We're Buying
Interest in Italian wine is on the rise, and Giuseppe Rinaldi Langhe Nebbiolo is leading the way. The Langhe Nebbiolo is subtle and pure, delivering striking floral and mineral notes. A shining example of Rinaldi's soulful, finessed, and old school style, this wine stands out as one of the most sought-after offerings from the region.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2017 Langhe Nebbiolo is sourced from 20-year-old vines in the Ravera cru that could otherwise be used to make Barolo. Because the vines are deemed too young for Rinaldi Barolo, the fruit goes here instead. Only 7,000 bottles are made. This easy wine offers dark fruit aromas with soft tannins and a smooth texture. This is a versatile wine that would pair with one of Piedmont's favorite dishes: poached egg topped with shaved white truffle.
