The 2008 Barolo Cannubi/S. Lorenzo-Ravera impresses for its gorgeous, perfumed fruit and totally sublime personality. The 2008 doesn't appear to have shut down post-bottling yet, which is surprising, so the wine is quite open for now, although I expect it will clamp down. Sweet floral notes, hard candy and tobacco are supported by ripe, silky tannins on the super-refined finish. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2038.
The 2008 Barolo Cannubi/S.Lorenzo-Ravera is intensely perfumed, silky and gracious. It shows impeccable class to match its highly attractive personality. I am curious to see if the wine gains volume in bottle. Today, it is a highly promising Barolo. In 2008 the blend is approximately 30% Cannubi and 70% Ravera. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2038.
