Fifth-generation Beppe Rinaldi carries on the legendary style of G Rinaldi, known for traditional style wines full of structure, perfume, and aging potential. ‘Brunate - Le Coste’ is dark and robust, farmed organically,fermented with native yeasts, and aged in old botti for 3.5 years. The 2004 vintage is dark fruited and bright, with tertiary notes of earth beginning to settle in. Dry and structured; a classic.
This tartly tannic, headily fragrant, beguilingly complex king of Italian red grapes is brimming with bright fruit and earthy funk -- in versions ranging from explosive (Barolo) to ethereal (Valtellina).
