Tasting Notes

Antonio Galloni's Notes: 95 Points
The 2012 Barolo Cannubi is shaping up to be magnificent. Next to the other 2012s, all of which play across a single dimension, the Cannubi stands out because of its creamy, multidimensional personality. Suave, silky tannins reinforce that impression. Like all of the 2012s here, the Cannubi is not a big wine, but it shows remarkable finesse. The Cannubi also has a bit more tannic bite on the finish, which is probably a combination of the manual punchdowns used here and traces of green tannin from the hail damage. Knock out aromatics, fine tannins and veins of supporting, saline-infused minerality all leave a lasting impression. The 2012 saw four days on the skins, a bit less than the other Barolos. More importantly, it is a testament to what a quality-obsessed grower can achieve in a year with plenty of challenges.
