From Marchesi di Barolo’s most celebrated single-vineyard, the Marchesi di Barolo Cannubi is a deeply floral and elegant expression with sharp contours that give the wine a sense of focus and definition. Pressed violets and dried jasmine lift from the glass and with just a few swirls, the wine begins to reveal red cherry, licorice, balsam herb, moist earth and anise seed.
Garnet-red in colour with ruby reflections. Intense perfume with clean scent of roses, vanilla, licorice, spices and toasted oak. Gentle notes of absinthe. The flavour is full and elegant, good-bodied and austere with recurring olfactory sensations. The spicy note and the hints of wood blend perfectly. The Marchesi di Barolo Cannubi reaches its maturity after 6 years from the harvest and can be enjoyed throughout its life between 6 and 25 years.
"This is a clean, somewhat naked and straightforward interpretation of Cannubi, a vineyard site that always puts elegance and finesse first. The Marchesi di Barolo 2015 Barolo Cannubi offers silky richness in this warm vintage with plenty of wild fruit followed by dusty mineral and fragrant menthol notes. This wine is compact, pretty and bright." - RP, 93 points
