97 points Wine Spectator "A beautiful perfume of flowers, mushroom and forest underbrush marks this maturing Barolo, which is tight and linear, with fine tension and mineral elements, followed by notes of chai spices and sandalwood on the long finish. Very vibrant. Drink now through 2027. 600 cases made. BS web only"93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 'Medium red. As is usually the case, the Brunate/Le Coste takes things up a notch. It presents a deeply mentholated, balsamic nose along with layers of dark fruit, licorice and tar flavors that develop in the glass in a potent style that captures the essence of the vintage. The Brunate/Le Coste is the richer and bigger of the two Barolos here, yet it also shows more elegance in its finer tannins. Still reasonably priced, Rinaldi’s Brunate/Le Coste remains the best traditional Barolo most people have never tasted. 93/drink after 2014, 3/06 Vinification is extremely traditional at this estate. The wines are fermented using indigenous yeasts in wood vats without the aid of temperature control and are aged in medium-size casks prior to being bottled in the summer of the fourth year following the harvest. These 1999s have perhaps a little less finesse but more power than 2001 and should mature later. The Brunate/Le Coste in particular remains a very pure expression of Nebbiolo and is reference level wine for the region. Rinaldi will bottle one small barrel of 2002 Barolo.'
