About professional Ratings
Cannubi is probably the most historical vineyard of the all Barolo region, in Barolo village. We vinify this cru from 1985 and this is one of the two oldest vineyards of ours planted in 1946 on the central crest of Cannubi hill. Here it comes the concentration and richness of this Barolo where the charm of Nebbiolo is fully expressed. Harmonious and very fine texture.
96 Points, James Suckling - This is so perfumed with dried flowers, blackberries, spices and citrus peel. Medium-bodied with fine tannins that spread across the palate, giving this impressive focus and texture as you taste it. Like a real Cannubi, it’s very elegant and approachable, but you know it’s for the long term. Better in 2024 and onwards.
95 Points, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - Sadly after this vintage, we only have one more. This Cannubi will no longer be produced after 2018. Enjoying it while we can, the Paolo Scavino 2017 Barolo Cannubi is fragrant and rich, showing a gorgeous level of aromatic purity and intensity that could not have been easy to achieve in the very hot vintage. Tones of wild cherry, blackberry, spice and sweet earth rise from the bouquet with prominence. This is a lovely wine that defies most everything we know about 2017.
