Wine Spectator | Rating: 92Offers a fabulous nose of ripe fruit and Indian spices, with toasty oak undertones. Full-bodied, with a solid core of fruit and velvety tannins. Long and chewy, yet polished and gorgeous.Author: James Laube
Wine Advocate | Rating: 93The 2005 Barolo Nei Cannubi is the most complete of these offerings. The wine combines a powerful, dense expression of fruit that nearly manages to cover the potent tannins that lie beneath. This is a decidedly primary Barolo at this stage, although with air faint notes of sweet roses, mint and spices begin to emerge. The finish is long and powerful. There is superb balance of fruit, acidity and structure, but readers will have to let this wine rest for a few years before those elements can be fully appreciated. Einaudi harvested at Cannubi on October 10.Author: Antonio Galloni
Piedmont, which literally means “foot of the mountain,” produces some of Italy's finest red wines. Its clay, limestone, and sand soils are home to the legendary and wines, made from the extremely age-worthy variety. Dolcetto and Barbera are considered to be more “workhorse” varieties, and produce the largest quantity of wine. The region is tucked in the cool northwest corner of the country, surrounded on three sides by the Alps. Fog often blankets the region, ensuring long, cool growing seasons.
