Poderi Luigi Einaudi Barolo Cannubi 2016
|Region||Italy, Piedmont, Barolo|
|Brand||Poderi Luigi Einaudi|
Rose, exotic spice and dark-skinned berry aromas mingle with whiffs of menthol and new leather on this radiant Barolo. Firmly structured and loaded with finesse, the savory palate delivers ripe morello cherry, orange zest, licorice and tobacco before a crushed mint finish. Taut fine-grained tannins and fresh acidity keep it well balanced. Drink 2026-2036.
A fresh, crystalline red, exhibiting flavors of cherry, strawberry, iron and tobacco affixed to a firm, unyielding backbone of dense yet refined tannins, finishing long and satisfying. Excellent balance. Best from 2023 through 2040. 833 cases made, 500 cases imported.
The 2016 Barolo Cannubi is ample and generous, with terrific textural resonance and breadth. Ripe dark cherry, plum, spice, licorice, new leather and menthol all flesh out in a supple, racy Barolo loaded with class and personality. The 2016 is rich, sensual and wonderfully inviting.
