Description

This was a great classic vintage with much promise.  This wine needs to be retasted…..these reviews date back to 2005 and 2012.

Wild and funky with an exotic undertone. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a long, long finish. Gorgeous and seductive. Best after 2006. 850 cases made, 340 cases imported. – 91 points, Wine Spectator

“The 2001 Barolo Cannubi is a pretty wine, but despite its considerable charms, it remains heavily marked by French oak, which was 100% new in this vintage. There is plenty of intensity in the dark fruit, along with pretty suggestions of flowers, spices and mint that add complexity. Still, I can’t help wondering what the 2001 might have been like with a less overt use of French oak. A recent magnum was naturally fresher than the normal bottle. I would prefer to drink the 2001 sooner rather than later.” – 91 points, Antonio Galloni -Wine Advocate
