Camphor, red-berry and new leather aromas form the nose. Linear and firmly structured, the elegant palate offers cranberry, licorice and tobacco framed in assertive, fine-grained tannins that grip the close. It's balanced, with fresh acidity. Give it a few more years to come around. Drink 2026–2036.

A very rich red on the nose with raspberries, strawberries, black truffles and some balsamico, following through to a full-bodied palate with chocolate, coffee and walnut undertones. A rich, decadent finish. Very rich Cannubi. Try after 2023.

Fenocchio's 2016 Barolo Cannubi is fabulous. Rich and sumptuous, yet with plenty of structure, the Cannubi dazzles from the very first taste. Rose petal, sweet red cherry, mint, blood orange and incense are some of the many notes that lift from the glass. On the palate, the Cannubi impresses with its sense of vertical structure and gravitas. The trademark sensuality of Cannubi meets a classically austere style. The 2016 is a wonderfully complete Barolo. I loved it.
