Sadly, Beppe Rinaldi passed away just couple years ago, but the winemaking is now in the capable hands of his daughters, Marta and Carlotta. They are continuing to enforce the notion that maybe vineyard blending in Barolo is the best method of making a balanced, ageable nebbiolo.

A true legend in the commune of Barolo, Beppe Rinaldi was the last of the “Last of the Mohicans” – the others were Bartolo Mascarello and Teobaldo Cappellano – who resisted modern trends. Sadly, he died in 2018 at a still young 69, and the estate is now run by his daughters Marta and Carlotta (the wine-maker and farmer, respectively), who are extremely worthy successors. Like Bartolo Mascarello, Beppe believed in the magic of blending different sites, but EU labeling laws forced him to make some compromises. They now release a Brunate, which is 85% Brunate and the rest Le Coste, and a “Tre Tine”, which is a blend of their remaining grapes from Le Coste, plus San Lorenzo and Ravera. They also have a range of wines from lesser grapes that are excellent but rarely seen in the United States because they are not imported via regular channels.

Professional Reviews

Robert Parker

RP 95
"This wine celebrated its 100-year anniversary in 2016. Representing its 99th birthday, the 2015 Barolo Tre Tine is a blend of fruit from Ravera (60%), Le Coste (20%) and Cannubi San Lorenzo (20%). These sites encountered some challenges with hail in the 2014 vintage that resulted in a 30% loss of fruit. The Rinaldi family saw hail in the Brunate and Cerequio area in 2016. But the 2015 vintage saw smooth sailing and what winemaker Marta Rinaldi calls "a return to normalcy." She says fermentations proceeded beautifully and without any holdups. This Barolo opens to a medium-dark garnet color with bright fruit tones followed by licorice, tar and delicate balsam herb. The wine offers a degree of softness that comes through in the quality of the tannins and the texture of the mouthfeel" -Monica Larner

Wine Spectator

WS 95
"The bright floral, strawberry, cherry and sandalwood flavors and the savory wild rosemary, juniper and eucalyptus notes show tension. Matched with the supple texture, elegant profile and overall harmony, those complex flavors resonate. Fine length. Best from 2023 through 2045." -Bruce Sanderson

Wine Enthusiast

WE 95
"Full bodied and elegantly structured, this offers alluring aromas of woodland berry, wild herbs and camphor along with a whiff of forest floor. On the firm palate, taut, refined tannins offset juicy red cherry, pomegranate, star anise and a hint of tobacco. A hazelnut note lingers on the close." -Kerin O'Keefe
