Barolo Cannubi Scavino 92ag 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2010 Barolo Cannubi is the hardest of these wines to read at this stage. Here it is the Scavino house style that seems to dominate over the characteristics of the site. Smoke, tar, licorice and menthol are some of the notes that take shape at first. Sage, rosemary, new leather and tobacco follow, adding nuance to the rich, resonant finish. The silky tannins are suggestive of Cannubi, but otherwise the vineyard's signatures aren't expressive. Today, the Cannubi comes across as extremely powerful, dark and not fully formed. I look forward to tasting it again in another 6-12 months...92" AG 01/14

Good deep, full red. Wonderfully vibrant nose hints at raspberry, flowers, minerals and pepper. Sappy and vinous in the mouth, with insinuating sweetness to its flavors of red cherry, raspberry and dried flowers. Not as large-scaled as the Bric del Fiasc but this energetic, sharply delineated wine expands impressively with aeration and finishes with terrific building length. Lay this one down for fireworks in about eight years.

The 2010 Barolo Cannubi is a layered and ethereal wine with dried flowers, candied orange peel, tar, spice, tobacco and cola. That signature touch of dried mint or pressed lavender flower appears at the back. This expression is particularly clean, focused and bright. Paolo Scavino has rented this half-hectare vineyard site since 1985. The mouthfeel is thin and compact. Drink: 2017–2030.

Perfumed and forthcoming, exhibiting violet, cherry, raspberry and spice notes. Harmonious and elegant, with firm, underlying tannins, a tightly knit structure and a terrific finish. This should develop and become more complex with time. Best from 2017 through 2032.
