Excellent deep red-ruby color. The nose began a bit reduced, then opened spectacularly to show red berries, black licorice, chestnut, brown spices, truffle, mocha and minerals, along with a suggestion of surmaturite Less obviously fleshy than the Brunate but already quite expressive despite its rather primary cherry fruit, with snappy acidity accentuating the wine's inner-mouth floral character. The tannins here are chewy, ripe and wonderfully suave for so-called old-style Barolo. I find this utterly compelling. Cannubi becomes more floral with aging and gains in length, says Rinaldi, while the Brunate takes on a stronger tar-and-chocolate character. (Rinaldi then popped a magnum of his '98 Cannubi, and the wine showed an incredible nose of truffle, dried flowers, iron and mocha; an elegant, silky texture like a maturing grand cru from Burgundy but with more power; flavors of raspberry, truffle and smoked meat; and a fine dusting of tannins. I rated this bottle 96 points, and Rinaldi assured me that the 2004 won't be as good as this!)  Tanzer 93-95
