Very pure, this evokes rose, cherry, strawberry, mineral and tobacco aromas and flavors. Lean and taut, finishing with a chalky sensation on the finish. Offers fine harmony and length, with a dry, minerally finish. Best from 2022 through 2038. 4,300 cases made.
This is one of the most popular and important wines made by Marchesi di Barolo. The 2013 Barolo Cannubi is a fine and delicate expression with big floral intensity. You get dried lavender and rose hip on first nose. Below those more fragrant layers are solid aromas of wild cherry and red currant. This expression of the Cannubi cru is accessible yet delicately complex and nuanced at the same time. Some 26,000 bottles were produced.
Tight and focused, this opens with aromas of wild berry, red rose, culinary spice and a whisper of menthol. Chiseled and austere, the palate offers sour cherry, pomegranate, white pepper and a hint of anise. Youthfully assertive fine-grained tannins and bright acidity provide the framework. Give it time to soften and fully develop. Drink 2023-2033.
