2015 G.B. Burlotto "Cannubi" Barolo

SKU #1458344 97 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2015 Barolo Cannubi is another dizzying wine from Burlotto. A rush of dark cherry, plum, hard candy licorice, violet and spice all hit the palate. Powerful and vertical in the glass, the Cannubi simply has it all. I would give the 2015 a good bit of time to shed some of its considerable baby fat. Powerful, dense and packed, the Cannubi is not as showy or seductive as the Monvigliero, but it has so much to offer, especially with a bit of bottle age. What a magnificent wine it is! Drink 2023-2055. (AG) Inner quote mark (2/2019)

Outer quote mark Fabio Alessandria makes this wine from a two-acre plot in the Barolo commune’s Cannubi cru, purchased by his great-grandfather in the early 20th century. It sees a shorter maceration than Monvigliero, around 15 days, gaining juicy flavors of cherry, currant and raspberry that feel fresh and crunchy in the context of the warm 2015 vintage. Rose petal scents and notes of orange peel and mint enhance the wine’s bright, vibrant character. A few hours of exposure to air reveal layers of licorice, tobacco and warm spice, a hint of the complex evolution this wine will offer over the next decade. Inner quote mark (12/2019)

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2015 Barolo Cannubi is a very delicate and streamlined expression that puts one little foot forward in front of the next with timid steps before it starts to pick up speed and find its stride. That slow start is important to the character and quality of the wine because it means that you will find something a little different each time you put your nose to the glass. I like the wine better each time I go back to the glass. I'm sure I will love it even more five to ten years from now. (ML) 96+ Inner quote mark (6/2019)
