A poised and complex Barolo from a traditional house. The Rinaldis have a long and illustrious history in Barolo, and this classic Barolo expresses the old school approach of the Francesco branch of the family. It is sourced from sites across the region in the traditional way, resulting in a roundness and nuance that still retains what Rinaldi values as 'austerity' — a quality of being less about fruit and more about savoury structure. Eminently food friendly and approachable even now, this unique offering is a super-fine and essential Barolo.


90-92/100 Vinous, Antonio Galloni (2016 Vintage)
"The 2016 Barolo is gracious and lifted, with lovely sweet red cherry and floral overtones. Silky tannins give this mid-weight Barolo a good bit of immediacy. Translucent and super-expressive, the 2016 is a model of pure and total class. Vineyard sites are a stellar collection of parcels from Rocche dell'Annunziata, Boiolo, Sarmassa, Vignane, Codana and a touch of Cannubi. In recent years, Rinaldi's straight Barolo has been one of the real under the radar gems in the region. The 2016 has the potential to be an overachiever."


17+/20 JancisRobinson.com, Alistair Cooper MW (2016 Vintage)
"Very perfumed nose with a firm and compact palate. This has real richness and depth, lots of bright acidity. Lively and dense – needs a long time to develop. Has a chalky minerality that adds spice and weight. Needs time to come together. Drink 2022 – 2030."


92/100 Gary Walsh, The Wine Front, August 2020 (2016 Vintage)
"There’s something of a distracting raisin and shrivelled berry character to the nose, but the palate steps up and does the trick. Dark chocolate, walnut and tar, ripe cherry, but fresh in acidity, with a kind of blood orange character through it. Succulent tannin with a black tea edge, and more of that tea and tar on a long finish. It’s really very old fashioned, and feels kind of mature, though as it sits in the glass, it almost begins to feel more vibrant and red fruited. A game of two halves, as it were, though I do like it."

    5 star review  I am overseas and ordered 6 bottles of wine for a gift. The wine selection on offer was very impressive and at great prices. The order was delivered the same day and because it was a Christchurch address there was no charge for delivery. I will certainly be using Vino Fino again.

  • 5 star review  Absolutely fantastic experience with Vino Fino for our wedding. They do offer a free chiller trailer with large orders but unfortunately someone got in just before us to have that on our wedding weekend. The staff are lovely and helpful, we had wonderful interactions with Paul, Dean and James. We did not have any idea of what we wanted to supply to our guests but the recommendations made were top notch and the guests loved them. The amount recommended worked out well for us, they work with your budget and they have a buy back option if you do not use all the wine. Would recommend for events or if you do not know wines like us and you are looking for recommendations.
