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

Antonio Galloni

AG 95
"The 2016 Barolo Tre Tine represents a sense of classicism in its mid-weight structure and austere energy. Tightly wound and brilliant, the 2016 is naturally going to need at least a few years in bottle to come together, but it is both delicious and immensely promising now. Sweet tobacco, cedar, mint and dried flowers come together with ethereal tannins in this su. blend of sites here - Ravera, Cannubi (San Lorenzo) and Le Coste - works so well." -Vinous

Wine Spectator

WS 96
"Kirsch, cherry and floral aromas and flavors kick off, augmented by eucalyptus, tar, tobacco and mineral notes. Tightly wound, this is more expressive than austere, with fine-grained tannins and vibrant acidity driving the long finish. This should be superb in about 10 years.""

Wine Enthusiast

WE 98
"Gorgeous, fragrant and structured, this has enticing scents of violet, camphor, orange zest and red berry. The focused palate boasts great energy, doling out strawberry compote, crushed raspberry, cinnamon and white pepper alongside taut, elegant tannins and vibrant acidity. Just fantastic." -Kerin O'Keefe
