Still imposing and massively structured it is also one of the most powerful 2000s. It possesses marvelous richness and depth with just enough radiance to make it somewhat approachable today. Almost. Readers who can still find magnums of the 2000 should not hesitate. This is a magnificent Barolo in every way. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2030. Giuseppe Rinaldi embodies all of the qualities of Piedmont's viticoltore culture which is to say he is focused on his vineyards first and foremost. During Rinaldi's first trip to New York earlier this year he kept a room of over 100 people in rapt attention as he recounted his philosophy on wine and life. It was an unforgettable moment. When it comes to the wines his are in my opinion the most traditional of the traditional wines of Piedmont. Legend has it that the magnums of Brunate/Le Coste are in fact made only from Brunate fruit. I have never been able to get a clear answer to that question. The bottom line is in top vintages the wines are fabulous. I buy as much of these wines as I can afford. -Antonio Galloni
