Notes from the Winemaker:
From superstar cru of Cannubi - Barolo's greatest, most expensive and historical, documented as far back as 1752! The Einaudi family succeeded in purchasing some of this celebrated terroir in 1997. The S and SE slopes of the Cannubi hill provide unbelievable magnitude, breed and longevity.
The ensuing Barolo's superb concentration is enhanced and fine-tuned by Ã©levage in oak barrels and barriques. The result is grandeur and complexity, luscious aromas, layers and layers of velvet, spice, goudron, truffles; long, long finish and a long, long cellar life of 25-30 years. Note: The label actually indicates "nei Cannubi", where "nei" means "in the" - in the terroir of Cannubi. Superfluous in English.
Ratings & Reviews
96 Points - James Suckling:
"A dense and velvety red with lots of chocolate, berry and spice character. Hints of mushroom too. Full body. Chewy and rich finish. Needs four to five years to soften. Great richness. Wonderful Cannubi. " (April 13th, 2015)
93 Points - Wine Spectator:
"Violet and black currant aromas and flavors are at the center of this red, tinged by licorice, spice and mineral notes. Lean, intense and persistent on the long, cherry- and spice-accented finish. Fine grip and freshness gives this longevity. Best from 2018 through 2035. 950 cases made." â€“BS (Web Only - 2015)
92 Points - Antonio Galloni's Vinous:
"The 2011 Barolo Cannubi is the ripest and most overt of these three 2011 Barolos from Einaudi. Dense, powerful and immediate, the 2011 will appeal most to readers who enjoy extroverted wines. There is no shortage of intensity in the rich, dark fruit, although personally I would like to see a little more site expression." -Antonio Galloni (Mar 2015)
