This Barolo's superb breed expresses the characteristic elegance of its terroir: brilliant garnet with orange hues, exuberant fruit and spice on nose and palate, luscious, full body and flavors, velvety texture, goudron and spicy finish.
Pairs with very rich, structured dishes worthy of its nobility.
"The 2008 Barolo Nei Cannubi is striking. Freshly cut flowers, mint, spices and sweet red cherries are woven together in a rich, luxurious tapestry of undeniable class. The balance of richness and finesse is fabulous. Silky, polished tannins are barely perceptible, such is the elegance of the fruit. In 2008 the Cannubi is sumptuous, elegant, and flat-out beautiful. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2028."
The Wine Advocate
"Bright, dark red-ruby. Distinctly feminine, pinot-like aromas of raspberry, flowers and truffley underbrush. Less outsized than the Costa Grimaldi but compellingly silky on the palate; sweet, shapely and sharply delineated but youthfully closed today. Finishes very long, with terrific cut. An elegant, lucid style of Barolo from sandy soil. This bottling has been consistently outstanding in recent years."
