Paolo Scavino Cannubi Barolo 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2008 Barolo Cannubi bursts from the glass with freshly cut flowers, black cherries, menthol and spices. It is a cool, reserved wine with plenty of Cannubi character. The 2008 is very young, but striking. The delineation, textural elegance and complexity are all first-rate. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2033....96" WA 4/12 "There’s a sense of elegance here, a perfect foil for the floral, cherry, strawberry and underbrush aromas and flavors. Possesses a firm, sinewy structure, which will allow this to develop over the next 10 to 20 years. Best from 2016 through 2034...93" WS 12/12

Cannubi is the cru in Barolo. This is still considered to be the Feminine side of the valley. I was mostly overwhelmed by its tones of dark chocolate and silky feel on the palate.Exudes sensuality!

Just mid ruby with broad orange-tinged rim. Pure and focused and fine. Elegant and intense on the finish. Richly tannic and completely integrated acidity yet clear cru level. 17/20 (WS) Jancis Robinson.
