Tasting Notes and Scores
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. (Monica Larner)
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. (vinous.com)
A Barolo with pure berry, cherry and ripe-plum character. Full body with chewy tannins and a chocolate-powder, berry and plum aftertaste. Balanced and fresh. Better in 2017.
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.
