75cl * 14.0% ABV * Barolo, Italy
Cannubi is considered the Grand Cru of Barolo, an extraordinary wine in terms of style and elegance. The quality of the grapes from the Cannubi hill comes from the particular composition of the soil: a high percentage of sand gives the grapes intense aromas of cherry, plum and tobacco from old vines, which are between 30 and 50 years old.
Garnet ruby red with orange reflections, the bouquet is pronounced cherry and plum with notes of tobacco, liquorice and cocoa. On the palate, the wine is harmonious and pleasantly dry with soft tannins. It is broad and full-bodied with a persistent finish.
96 points, James Suckling - Subtle and complex aromas and flavors of chocolate, hazelnut, plum and orange peel. Full body, with super refined tannins and a long, long finish. Shows the finesse and density of a truly great Cannubi. Drink or hold.
93 points, Wine Spectator - Sweet cherry, plum and licorice flavors permeate this rich, lacy red. Features solid texture, a sense of elegance and good balance, with firm tannins for support. Finishes with spice accents.
92 points, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - The 2010 Barolo Cannubi shows great definition and staying power within a delicate and feminine framework. The wine is characterized by a luminous garnet color, mild consistency and pretty menthol highlights.
Suggested serving temperature 17°C.
Drink until 2032.
