2018 & 2020 Giuseppe Rinaldi Barbera d'Alba

Posted by Ian McFadden

The wines of Giuseppe Rinaldi are among the greatest examples of traditional Piedmont. They hardly need an introduction.

The wine world has become obsessed with Rinaldi's soulful, finessed, and old-school style.

Accordingly, the wines have become very hard to find and it's rare for us to have an opportunity to offer the wines.

Today, we're excited to offer two vintages of Rinaldi's Barbera d'Alba, 2018 and 2020, for $69.95 per bottle. 

The two vintages serve as bookends to each other. The 2018 has a darker and deeper profile, while the 2020 is bright and lifted. 

Regardless of vintage, Rinaldi's Barbera always stands out for being incisive and nimble. It's a style of Barbera that we really enjoy. There's incredible purity to the wine's mineral core that's complicated by floral notes and spice. 

I'm going to wrap this up. There's no point in fanning the fire. Anytime that we offer Rinaldi, the wines get snapped up very quickly.
