Light brownish tawny, thin and translucent. Enticing nose. Notes of rose petals, earth, balsamic, some molasses and some red cherries. Smooth and silky in the mouth. Caught this bottle at a great time, it’s an awesome accompaniment to tonight’s lasagna.

Just in a fantastic place. Redolent of roses, oolong tea, minerals and earth. Blackberries on the palate. Lovely integration and fine tannins. Super lithe. Very much enjoyed it.

Tonight's wine is the 2014 Paolo Scavino Cannubi Barolo. A beautiful wine from the Langhe region of Italy by the Scavino family.

The nose has notes of rose, cherry, menthol, clay pot, light smokey oak, anise and earth.

On the palate there is cherry, raspberry, anise, chocolate, herbs, spice, balsamic, integrated oak and earth.

This wine is medium to full bodied with a rich velvety mouthfeel, medium + to high acidity and medium + to high bold firm round tannins that leads to a long sumptuous finish. I hope everyone is having a nice week and looking forward to the weekend. It looks as though winter is rearranging its head here so please stay safe. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

The 2015 Barolo Cannubi is another heady, dense wine in this range. Here, too, there is a ton of potential, but at present the 2015 is fruity and primary. I would give it a good few years for some of the baby fat to melt away. Even with all of its textural richness, the 2015 has quite a bit of underlying detail and nuance that emerges with just a bit of aeration. There is plenty to look forward to, that much is clear.

Tight, dark, coiled fruit. Lovely purity and depth. Still retaining something. Pure

Deep tawny with reddish rims. Almost opaque. Fragrant fruit forward nose. Notes of black cherry, moist earth, rose petals, iron, anise and some mint. Big and powerful in the mouth. Tannins most integrated. Chewy. Some dryness on the finish. Fruit fades a bit. Gave it 5 hours of air in the decanter. The nose is what’s memorable.

Super expressive nose / red fruit in full spectrum: ripe, baked, candied

Tasted blind. Ripe fruit that has faded but still supported by its considerable structure. Aging well. Nothing better than mature Barolo.
