User Reviews for Barolo 'Cannubi Muscatel' DOCG

Winemaker's Notes:

About This Wine: The nose on this Barolo has an aristocratic character and the wine comes from one of the most prestigious crus in the DOCG, the Cannubi. The floral notes are well balanced with red fruit flavors (cherries and blackberry.) In the mouth it starts with a fresh and lively tannic structure, showing great concentration and a smooth balance. It finishes witha long and extremely elegant aftertaste. This Barolo has a fantastic ageing potential.<br/><br/> About The Winery: In the comune of Barbaresco, the top vineyard sites or "crus" have always been considered to be Santo Stefano, Rabaja and Rio Sordo. The Balbo family has long owned a good portion of the Rio Sordo cru, and sold grapes to prominent local winemakers. In recent years, they have employed the services as vineyard manager of Federico Curtaz, renowned locally for developing the vineyard sites of Angelo Gaja. In addition, they have obtained as their own winemaker Guido Martinetti, who has received eight ?Tre Bicchieri? (Three Glasses) awards from Gambero Rosso/Slow Food?s ?Vini d?Italia? - all by the age of thirty. In addition to their two cru Barbarescos, the estate produces small amounts of Dolcetto and Nebbiolo Langhe. ?A promising debut in the Guide for this small Barbaresco winery with ideally situated vineyards. The Balbo family, helped by Guido Martinetti and Federico Curtaz produce excellent wines. The two Barbarescos have a distinctive, precise style. The Dolcettos are enjoyably fruity. (Gambero Rossos Vini d'Italia)<br/><br/> Technical Analysis: <strong>Appelation:</strong> Barolo DOCG<br/><br/> <strong>Varietals:</strong> 100% Nebbiolo<br/><br/> <strong>Vinification:</strong> Grapes aare removed from stalk and gently pressed; maceration on skins for 13 days at around 30 degrees C.<br/><br/> <strong>Vineyard:</strong> 10 year old vines - Cannubi-Muscatel cru, in Barolo (Cuneo) Piedmont<br/><br/> <strong>Aging:</strong> Aged for 3 years in French oak barriques.
