"This is already approachable with lovely ripe-strawberry, chocolate and walnut character. It’s full and layered with chewy, polished tannins and a flavorful finish. Better after 2022." 94 Points James Suckling
A Barolo of high standing, both austere and complex. Deep red garnet in color. Delicately spiced bouquet (notes of eucalyptus, licorice and menthol), mature fruit (liqueur soaked cherries, blackberries and prunes) and hints of violets and medicinal herbs. Powerful on the palate, lightly acidic and fresh. Lasting finish.
Vinity Wine Company
The color is a deep garnet red with orange reflections. Intense scents tipical of nebbiolo, rose, truffles, leather. The palate shows hints of black cherry, truffles, spices and notes of aromatic herbs. Texture subtle and velvety tannins with a remarkable depth and complexity. Persistence is pleasantly long.
New leather, woodland berry, dark spice, and menthol aromas unfold in the glass. It's bright and juicy, offering tight layers of raspberry compote, morello cherry, cinnamon and clove alongside firm, chewy tannins. Fresh acidity lends balance while a graphite note energizes the finish. Give this time to unwind and develop even more complexity. Drink 2023–2038

Cannubi is probably the most historical vineyard of the all Barolo region, in Barolo village. We vinify this cru from 1985 and this is one of the two oldest vineyards of ours planted in 1946 on the central crest of Cannubi hill. Low yield of this vineyard is due to a special combination of natural factors one of which is the old age of the vines assuring a unique quality. Here it comes the concentration and richness of this Barolo where the charm of Nebbiolo is fully expressed. Harmonious and very fine texture.

Enrico Scavino’s experience, recognized the quality of this undiscovered beautiful cru and decided to purchase it in 2001. By luck this cru was the only one of the estate untouched by the hail in 2002 and debuted as a solo showing lots of personality and potential even in such a difficult year. Bricco Ambrogio has an intense and multifaceted aromatic spectrum. The core is soft and polished through a beautiful acid-tannic balance. There is an underlying depth in this Barolo and the finish is long and nuanced.
