Poderi Luigi Einaudi Barolo Nei Cannubi 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2010 Barolo Cannubi is beautifully finessed and pure with etched aromas of cola, tar, pressed violets and balsam herb that are straight out of the Nebbiolo playbook. It shows power and extreme elegance in equal measure. Compared to the 2009 vintage that was lighter in the mouth, the 2010 edition is both generous and enduring. It shows the very best of Cannubi, the vineyard cru responsible for one of the most important interpretations of the mighty Nebbiolo grape variety. I look forward to revisiting this wine in ten years or more...95" WA 07/14 "Sweet, silky tannins provide the backbone for the 2010 Barolo Cannubi, a wine that impresses for its creamy texture and fabulous overall balance. Sweet red berries, mint, tobacco, cherries and flowers flesh out in a soft, caressing Barolo loaded with finesse. All the elements meld together in the glass. The Cannubi is naturally a more feminine wine than the Terlo, and equally appealing, even if it is totally different in style...94+" AG 01/14

Classic on the nose with a bit of sweet cassia bark, carob, wild cherry in alcohol, bit of wood spice, and lots of camphor on the deep nose. Pretty powerful on entry, this shows lovely clarity and depth on the palate, rich with sour fruits, ripe tannins but lots of them, and emerging inner mouth aromatic complexity. The palate shows shades of herbals notes, a hint of minerality, edgy tannins that are dusty in the mouth, and while this lacks the elegance of the Costa Grimaldi it makes up for it with depth of flavor and complexity. Classically austere Cannubi, you can taste the hot, white earthy on the the bitter cherry toned finish, a bit spicy and almost peppery. The Costa Grimaldi is a ball point pen, this is a felt marker. 92pts

Cannubi is the greatest, most historical Barolo cru, going back to the 1700s. The Einaudi family owns the south and southeastern slopes of the celebrated Cannubi hill, at an altitude of 722 feet above sea level, providing a Barolo of superb breed, longevity, elegance, aromas and magnitude. The wine’s superb concentration is enhanced and fine-tuned by aging of at least 30 months in French oak. The result is grandeur and complexity, luscious aromas, layers and layers of velvet, spice, goudron, truffles; long, long finish and a long, long cellar life of 25 to 30 years. From the stellar 2010 vintage, this wine has 90+ scores all around including 97 points from Wine Enthusiast Magazine who made it a Cellar Selection and said "Enticing scents of rose petals, violet, tilled earth and leather mingle on this wine hailing from the historical heart of the celebrated Cannubi vineyard. The vibrant palate offers crushed dark cherry accented with cinnamon, clove and a touch of vanilla alongside silky tannins. Balanced and loaded with finesse, it will develop more complexity over the next few decades. Drink 2020–2040." Limited!
