Bouquet: Originating from the terroir always recognized for the olfactory richness, the Barolo Cannubi 2010 totally confirms that character. The bouquet is complex, full of fruit notes (small red fruit) and of flowers. In the second serve more fully-developed notes like spices (cinnamon and nutmeg) and a dried rose with some balsamic and fresh note (peppermint and juniper) are being perceived.
Taste: Full bodied, intense and elegant like the true essence of Barolo. The wine with the right dry tannins, with long lasting final in the palate, just a bit austere. The Barolo Cannubi 2010 does not possess the masculine and strong structure but plays the best thanks to its elegance and complexity. Every sip presents a new shade, the tannins are present but are velvety, the slight acidity presents the freshness and drinkability and finally arrives to the pleasant aftertaste with licorice, chocolate and tobacco typically defined as “goudron”.
