Borgogno : Cannubi 2008
Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2008 Barolo Cannubi shows slightly more aromatic restraint with elegant tones of dried fruit, licorice, tar and crushed minerals. It delivers feather-like weight in the mouth, yet shows its determination and liveliness thanks to the polished nature of the tannins. The length of the mouthfeel is like that last chord of music that resonates forever before hitting silence. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2030.
