The 2012 Barolo Cannubi shows dark fruit nuances, sweet flavors and slightly astringent tannins. The vintage holds back in terms of overall complexity compared to past editions that showed more depth, even at this young stage in their evolution. This is a common trait across the Cannubi cru in 2012. What the wine does offer, however, is a plump and upfront sense of dark fruit with pretty notes of rose petal and grilled herb.
Broad, with plenty of muscle to shore up the cherry, strawberry and earth flavors. The tannins are assertive for now, yet this remains fresh and long, if slightly hot on the finish. Best from 2018 through 2029. 800 cases made.
