Medium red. Rinaldi's 1999 Cannubi (San Lorenzo)/Ravera offers a classic profile of roses, spices, macerated cherries and minerals on a delicate, medium-bodied frame with the firm structure that is this producer's signature. The tannins are slightly coarser than those of the Brunate/Le Coste and today the alcoholic component is surprisingly prominent. It should drink well to at least age 20.
Anticipated maturity: 2013-2013
