Paolo Scavino Cannubi Barolo DOCG Ml 2001

Winemaker's Notes:

94+ points Antonio Galloni (Wine Advocate): The 2001 Barolo Cannubi, a dark ruby, is a classic in the making. It offers a multi-dimensional, delicate nose of flowers, menthol and minerals with plenty of ripe dark cherry fruit, great length and a nuanced, ethereal finish. It will require at least a few years of bottle age and will still be vibrant and full of flavor at age 20. Compared to Scavino's more imposing Barolos Carobric and Bric del Fiasc, the Cannubi can sometimes be overpowered, but given some cellaring it typically begins to strut its stuff around age 10 and develops into a magical Barolo that can challenge many of the region's top wines. I still have fond memories of the sublime 1989 and 1990 tasted last year. A great effort. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2019. (Oct 2006)
