“Solid and superfruity. Ultraclean, with blackberries, raspberries and licorice character. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a long finish. Focused and silky. Very refined indeed. One of the best Cannubis ever from here. 97 points.” Wine Spectator, 31 July 2005
With Brunello in Tuscany, Barolo is undoubtedly Italy’s finest wine producing region. Located in Piedmont in the north west of Iataly Barolo is comprised of 5 major communes – Barolo, Monteforte d’Alba, La Morra, Castiglione Falletto and Serralunga d’Alba – though the latter three tend to represent the main styles of the region. The wines are compelling and polished – an exemplary expression of the Nebbiolo grape. DOCG law requires a minimum ageing of 2 years in cask or barrel yet can be longer depending on the producer. Barolos are generally released four or more years after the vintage.
