Wine AdvocateFrom Barolo's most celebrated (and recently expanded) single-vineyard, the 2010 Barolo Cannubi is a deeply floral and elegant expression with sharp contours that give the wine a sense of focus and definition. Pressed violets and dried jasmine lift from the glass and with just a few swirls, the wine begins to reveal red cherry, licorice, balsam herb, moist earth and anise seed. This is a great wine from Marchesi di Barolo, one of the region's legacy producers. Drink: 2017-2028.
Wine SpectatorLeather, licorice and tar notes accent the core of cherry in this sinewy red. There's plenty of fruit to balance the structure, though this finishes on the chewy side for now. Fine length. Best from 2018 through 2030. 700 cases imported.
Wine EnthusiastAn inviting fragrance recalls rose, violet, berries and a whiff of leather. The understated palate offers up sour cherry accented with subtle oak, toast, espresso, vanilla and baking spices alongside drying tannins. Drink 2018-2025.
