The 2016 Luigi Einaudi Barolo Cannubi is a wine of great class that expresses the elegance of the territory, of a brilliant garnet red turning slightly amber with time, exuberant in its fragrance of fruit and spices, of great body, full and velvety with a long spicy finish. Rich in structure, intense, mysterious and powerful.
Wow. This is real Cannubi, offering sliced ripe strawberries and dried flowers, such as roses, as well as crushed raspberries. It’s full-bodied, yet very tight and reserved. Stealth is a word that comes to mind. Love it. Best in a long time. Drinkable now, but better after 2023.
A fresh, crystalline red, exhibiting flavors of cherry, strawberry, iron and tobacco affixed to a firm, unyielding backbone of dense yet refined tannins, finishing long and satisfying. Excellent balance. Best from 2023 through 2040.
