Fine almost sweet and slightly jammy boysenberry tinged fruit pops on the nose with wispy smoke and soil notes, a hints of tar and carob adding detail. In the mouth this is seamless, classic Cannubi, with bright acids, fine grained elegant tannins, and inner mouth perfumes of rose petals, wild cherry fruit, and gentle suggest of herbs and burnt orange ring in the mouth. The tannins really build on the finish and are a bit dusty but sweet. There are lovely herb nuances through the chewy, powerful finish along with hints of tart strawberry fruit. 93pts

Ripe fruit that is a touch jammy greets the nose followed by lots of very mineral, limestone notes along with oak that is fairly well integrated already, still obvious but in balance with the raspberry in alcohol fruit. This turns a touch balsamic with air and the oak presence increases a touch with a hint of nuttiness. Smooth, soft, and rather 2009 in the mouth this shows slightly syrupy raspberry and wild cherry fruit, with a Iittle hazelnut accent. There's an underlying sweetness here, though this tightens up on the finish, showing lots of late tannins. Both rather tense and very ripe this is a bit unfocused in the mouth. 89pts

Tight, floral, complex, savory and very precise on the nose with a light sheen of oak, both new and old topped with sweet rose petals. Bright and vivid in the mouth with rich yet transparent wild cherry fruit, lovely tannins are assertive but in balance allowing the wine to finish with a pretty sweetness augmented by a touch of wood sweetness, this shows the taut, austere elegance of Cannubi very well 93pts

This is showing a fine nose with lovely floral perfumes, a bit of lightly peppery spice, red fruit and a hint of Chinato. There’s a little prune on entry, joined by dry, firm tannins that make this a bit dark and reticent on the palate. It’s made in a firm, masculine style but it’s not a big wine. The beautifully framed fruit has good energy on the finish though late arriving wood tannins add a sapid note. This is firm and seems to be a bit closed, but it has everything in place to be wonderful. 91pts

Red currant, red cherry and burnished leather in alcohol come together on the nose along with licorice and something vaguely medicinal and vaguely beefy. There’s a softness here and a gentleness to this wine, which exhibits lovely ripe tannins, nice acid and pretty fruit. Really clear and well-defined style that relies more on bright acids than tannins. This is airy and just lacks a hint of firmness. 90pts

Sweet, powerful, dried cherry fruit, very aromatic, chalk, a bit of Fruit Roll-Up, deep pure rich fruit. Powerful but not weighty, good acids, nice crisp tannins, nice fresh spice in the mouth, nice mineral cut. Very pure, very soil-driven, lively on the palate with good follow-through, lovely crisp tannins, a bit short. (92-94pts)

A bit candied, a bit cola, sort of flat and indistinct, fruity in a dry way, nice mid-palate feel. Nice, wiry, almost herbal red strawberry fruit on mid-palate, a bit simple but refreshing. (84-85pts)

Chiara Boschis is one of the few female winemaker at this level in the Barolo area. Her wines are of great elegance and finesse, especially from her parcel of the Cannubi Cru. The 2004 has a great concentrated bouquet on the nose with fruits, spice & oak. Rich, yet well defined with a classic Character from the Cannubi vineyard. Silky tannins & long finish... A wine for the long run. QC (http://www.questionofwine.blogspot.com)

    Chewy, with lots of tannin, but soft. Reasonably balanced.

    The ’99 Brezza Cannubi was a gorgeous Barolo with crushed red berries, roses, mineral dust, and tobacco on the nose. On the palate, it was elegant and finessed with ripe cherry fruit and minerals, which turned darker and more dramatic over time to reveal sweet balsamic notes. The finish showed red berries made tart by cheek-puckering tannin. This wine was youthful, with many years of development ahead of it.

    A wine with wonderful fruit character on the nose and palate with dried strawberries and cherries. Full body, with super well integrated tannins and a velvety texture.

    This beautiful wine is clean and pure on the nose with pure rose, slightly dazzling red berry fruit and licorice then refreshing mineral notes. This generates an elegant mouth with a round feel that integrates fine acidity and very ripe tannins, as well as, flavors of dark cherry but with good, refreshing herbal top notes and finishing with lovely transparency.
