"A wine with tension and form with beautiful blueberry, spice and mineral character. Full body, polished and chewy tannins and a long and flavorful finish. Needs three or four years to soften but wonderful future. One of the best Cannubis from here in a long time."

"The 2011 Barolo Cannubi is distinguished by great intensity and integrity of fruit. In general, I found wines from the Cannubi cru to show more ripeness in the 2011 vintage and that is also the case here. Dark blackberry, spice, leather and tobacco form a united aromatic fruit. The wine shows vigor, power and a rich mouthfeel that lasts long on the palate. Hold this wine for 3-5 more years. "
"Garnet-red in color with ruby reflections. Intense perfume with clean scent of roses, vanilla, licorice, spices and toasted oak. Gentle notes of absinthe. The flavor is full and elegant, good- bodied and austere with recurring olfactory sensations. The spicy note and the hints of wood blend perfectly. The Barolo Cannubi reaches its maturity after 6 years from the harvest and can be enjoyed throughout its life between 6 and 25 years. With its great structure, this wine is particularly adapted to red meats, braised dishes and game in general. It is an ideal accompaniment for cheeses and our typical local cuisine." -Winery
