DESCRIPTION

Steve Tanzer 92
Good bright medium red. Very ripe aromas of red berries, tart cherry, menthol, dried flowers, smoky oak and mint, plus an element of coffee torrefaction. Soft and silky but with lovely lift and purity for a warm-vintage wine from sandy soil. Finishes with serious dusty tannins that call for patience.

Wine Advocate 96
The reigning queen, however, is the 2009 Barolo Cannubi. This outstanding wine shows gorgeous inner and outer beauty. I am especially impressed with her 2009 edition because this vintage presented many obstacles to many of her neighbors in the same cru designation. The balsam intensity is mind-blowing: menthol notes are woven together with ginger, cola, dried rosemary, pressed rose and licorice. The wine leaves a memorable trail of lasting elegance thanks to its finely polished tannins and silky texture. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2030.
