2015 Damilano Cannubi Barolo DOCG Italy

$94.99 USD

Winemaker Notes
Garnet ruby red in color with orange reflections. The bouquet is ample and embracing, with pronounced fruity notes of cherry and plum and notes of tobacco, liquorice and cocoa. On the palate, the wine is harmonious, pleasantly dry with soft tannins, broad and full-bodied. Persistent finish.
Cannubi is a sumptuos wine, perfect with the full-flavoured Piedmontese cuisine such as white truffle -based dishes and braised meat. Ideal with the refined dishes of the great international gastronomy.

Lots of dried flowers, mushrooms and earth to the ripe and exotic fruit. Full body, chewy and intense tannins and a flavorful finish. Needs lots of time to come together. Try in 2024.

The bouquet on the 2015 Barolo Cannubi shows more licorice and dark spice than the other new releases from Damilano. There is good volume here, and at the same time, the wine is contained and focused. However, it's just slightly flat, and along with a general lack of intensity, that keeps it from a higher score. I'm picturing this with a rabbit tagliatelle.
