Jamessuckling.com: 96“Aromas of strawberries, flowers and tea follow through to a full body, a dense center palate and a tannic and structured finish. Big and powerful Cannubi. Tiny production. Drink in 2022.”

A dark and imposing wine of massive depth. Here I found notes of black cherry, sweet herbs, dark chocolate, dusty spice, and crushed stone. On the palate, a massive wave of velvety textures flooded the senses, and red and black fruits gave way to fine tannin. It was quite monolithic yet not over the top, and it tempted me with what was yet to come. The finish displayed intense tart black and red fruits with lasting minerality, seeming to create a black hole on the palate. I can’t even imagine what this wine will reveal in the decades to come, but I’m sure it will be something very special.

The grandest of Cru, Cannubi is probably the most historical vineyard in the Barolo region. Vinified by Paolo Scavino for the first time in 1985, Cannubi holds some of the family’s oldest vines, planted in 1946. The low yields of this vineyard lend richness and charm to the wine.
