Giuseppe Rinaldi is an Italian producer in the Piedmont sub-region of Barolo, the source of some of the most revered and valuable Nebbiolo-based wines of Italy. The Rinaldi Barolo ‘TRE TINE’ 2017 is fabulous. A wine that marries classicism with the racy personality of the year, the 2017 hits all the right buttons. It’s a wine that satisfies all the senses, with more than enough to please both the hedonistic and intellectual senses. Everything about the 2017 is spot on. Bright red berry fruit, rose petal, mint, lavender and spice build into the delineated, salivating finish. As always, the Tre Tine is a bit more linear than the Brunate. In 2017, it is one of the wines of the vintage. Don’t miss it.

4 reviews for Rinaldi Barolo ‘TRE TINE’ 2017

  1. WS

    This is racy and elegant, despite the tightly wound, firm tannins boasting floral and red berry aromas and flavors, with accents of mineral and leafy underbrush. Shows fine harmony overall, with the essence of fruit returning on the finish. Best from 2025 through 2042. 550 cases made, 100 cases imported.

  2. WA

    The Giuseppe Rinaldi 2017 Barolo Tre Tine was bottled in September 2020, and Carlotta Rinaldi tells me that the wine has gone through various moments of openness and shyness since then. The wine was a little closed when I tasted it this past summer, but its evolution is far from over. As you contemplate the bouquet, you sense lots of fruit, yet there is no excessive ripeness like you might expect from this hot and dry vintage. It shows elegant fruit weight, streamlined and silky, with dried violet, spice and rusty nail. It carries a medium texture that is elongated by the wine’s integrated tannins and acidity. Tre Tine is a blend of fruit from Ravera, Le Coste and Cannubi San Lorenzo, and these latter two vineyards were harvested especially early in this vintage, starting on September 13, 2017, which is unusual for Nebbiolo.

  3. DEC

    This is the last vintage produced by Beppe Rinaldi. I personally prefer the estate’s Brunate most of the time but in 2017, Tre Tine seems to express more concentration. The wine shows vibrant red berry and plum fruits alongside a citrus, almost herbal, freshness. It’s not really poised at present, with assertive acidity and firm, muscular tannins that are chewy rather than hard. Its fierce character is balanced by plenty of fruit concentration. Released in spring 2021, I would drink it from October onwards.
