Pretty oaky, dried fruits but good acid and nice length.

Very powerful and masculine style of wine. Oak was dominant and took some time to open up. Savory and rich with meaty, shroomy, truffle and sanguine flavors. Hold for a few more years or decant hours ahead of time! #womeninwine #nebbiololife #nebbiololover #chiaraboschis #barolo #barologirl

Sadly a bit too much wood over what would have been gorgeous fruit and structure.

The 100 percent new oak has been totally absorbed. Now seems classic. Go Cihiara. Great with papardelle and white truffles.

I expected more from this wine. Anyway well structured, round and elegant wine. Some secondary aromas of toast and earthy flavors.

Mature with a lot of power and a very present tannin. Autumnal flavors, dried berries and flowers, a bit of cigar ash. Not the best 1996 botte of the Cannubi I've had so far. Drink now.
