Slightly high-toned aromas of violet and cassis with the exotic fruit note shown by so many Barolos from this superripe year. Lush sweet and expressive in the mouth; flavors of red fruit complicated by a slightly rustic quality. Quite pliant and fruity for a young Rinaldi wine. Finishes with substantial thoroughly ripe tannins and sneaky length.

An old style Barolo Rinaldi's 1997 Brunate Le Coste exhibits a dense saturated plum/garnet color in addition to aromas of flowers cinnamon allspice dried herbs earth licorice and mineral-infused black cherries. Layered and powerful with astringent tannin as well as a huge concentration of fruit this classic tough-textured Barolo will be admired by traditionalists. The magic will emerge after 3-5 years of cellaring although do not expect this wine to have the suppleness or sexy new oak style of a modernist's Barolo. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2018.
