Paolo Scavino Barolo Cannubi 2010
Wine EnthusiastMade from old vines in the heart of the historical Cannubi zone, this needs a little time in the glass before it opens to reveal rose, violet, clove, cinnamon, leather and berry aromas. It's very elegant, with concentrated flavors of red cherry accented with balsamic notes and cake spices alongside polished tannins and bright acidity. Drink 2020-2040.
Wine AdvocateThe 2010 Barolo Cannubi is a layered and ethereal wine with dried flowers, candied orange peel, tar, spice, tobacco and cola. That signature touch of dried mint or pressed lavender flower appears at the back. This expression is particularly clean, focused and bright. Paolo Scavino has rented this half-hectare vineyard site since 1985. The mouthfeel is thin and compact. Drink: 2017-2030.
