The 1971 Francesco Rinaldi was one of the first really fine old Barolos I tasted (in 2003), and it made an important contribution to the Nebbiolo obsession I’ve been enjoying since. Some of the Italian collectors we were buying from in those years had a lot of F. Rinaldi in their cellars, and for a while we had real quantity and range to offer – and to taste, more than a few times. The wines are superb, and I remain convinced that they are among the best of Barolo. Many of the wines from other producers listed below are in the same category - treasures for your table!

A consistently excellent wine — we've been lucky to get to taste this several times in the last few years. It needs a lot of time to breathe, and then it provides a classic example of fully mature Nebbiolo. Jamie Wolff
Like some other very good Piedmont 1974s, this wine has a nice amount of fruit, and it's well-balanced — actually quite elegant. From an over-looked vintage, this is a fine value.
This bottle is drinking so well right now. If you can spare the money, please do your self a favor and grab one while you can. Poised on the brink of maturity, the wine offers savory, tertiary aromas of earth, roasting meat, and mushroom along with delicate, mouth-filling dried cherry flavors. Really, this is the kind of beautiful, masterfully wrought wine that defies description and lingers in one's memory for years. Make sure to give the wine ample time to decant; it will take several hours of air for it to show all it has to offer. -msb
