Marchesi di Barolo Cannubi Barolo 2013
James Suckling: "A beautiful red with soft and velvety tannins, juicy fruit and a walnut and dark-berry character. Full body. Lovely and genuine. Better in 2020." Jan 2017
Robert Parker, Jr.'s Wine Advocate: "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. Drink date: 2018 - 2028." Aug 2017
Wine Spectator: "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." Feb 2018
Winery: "Garnet-red in color with ruby reflections. Intense perfume with clean scent of roses, vanilla, licorice, spices and toasted oak. Gentle notes of absinthe. The flavor is full and elegant, good- bodied and austere with recurring olfactory sensations. The spicy note and the hints of wood blend perfectly. The Barolo Cannubi reaches its maturity after 6 years from the harvest and can be enjoyed throughout its life between 6 and 25 years. With its great structure, this wine is particularly adapted to red meats, braised dishes and game in general. It is an ideal accompaniment for cheeses and our typical local cuisine."
