Paolo Scavino Cannubi Barolo DOCG 2017
95 pts. 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." (ML) (6/2021)
93 pts. Jeb Dunnuck:
"The 2017 Barolo Cannubi is ripe with leather, cola spice, tobacco, and dried cherry. There is building structure and grip as well as a fairly long finish that continues to dry the palate." (AF) (5/2021)
93 pts. Wine Spectator:
“This aromatic red offers floral, cherry, leather and earth notes, picking up savory juniper, tamarind and tobacco flavors for detail. Tense and linear, with firm, dusty tannins lining the finish. Best from 2025 through 2043.” —B.S.
FROM THE WINERY
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.
Low yield of this vineyard is due to a special combination of natural factors one of which is the old age of the vines assuring a unique quality. Here it comes the concentration and richness of this Barolo where the charm of Nebbiolo is fully expressed. Harmonious and very fine texture.
Altitude, Exposure: 290 mt, south-south east
Soil: Marne di Sant’Agata fossili, limestone
Planting year: 1946
