2012 Giuseppe Rinaldi Barolo Tre Tine Nebbiolo
Visit to Giuseppe Rinaldi with Marta Rinaldi (Barolo, Piemonte): A blend of 60% Ravera, 20% Cannubi (San Lorenzo) and 20% Le Coste. This is a superb, elegant Barolo. A light ruby colour. A perfumed, floral, complex, beautiful bouquet. A refined and very precise wine on palate. Fresh with lovely acidity. Ethereal and finessed. You could mistake this wine for being delicate but there is some power and tannins (albeit spherical and ultra-fine grained ones) under the surface. Despite this profile, I'd imagine the Tre Tine should really be cellared for 8-10+ years. However, it is a dangerously tempting wine to open in the first year or two, if you have a spare bottle.

2013 Giuseppe Rinaldi Barolo Brunate Nebbiolo
Visit to Giuseppe Rinaldi with Marta Rinaldi (Barolo, Piemonte): To be released in April 2017. From the barrel. A darker, deeper colour. A serious bouquet, closed and austere. Dark and a little earthy with a little balsamico. On palate, a satiny texture. Seamless, suave tannins. Dense, weighty black fruit, with serious grip on the back palate. This is what Barolo is all about. A superb, classic Barolo to cellar.

This bottle was nothing compared to my last bottle which was a great positive surprise. This time the wine was very powerful but more one-dimensional. Bottle variation???

    10/6/15, 8:32 AM - I do not have a very extensive experience with Martin Müllen but I read about bottle variation before. However, one remark I read was that it got better after some technical upgrade in his cellar a few years ago. I will keep trying...

Lighter Red. It was initially a bit restrained on the nose but opened up after some time in the glass. Very smooth (again) with sour cherry and the first sins of some tertiary aromas (in a very pleasant way). Ready to drink. Unfortunately I only have one bottle left.
