    Barolo Cannubi DOCG 2016

    Just 1,500 bottles of this exceptional Barolo from the leased Cannubi vineyard (Comune di Barolo) reach the market every year. Precise bouquet of dark fruits, in addition some smoke and liquorice, notes of cassis. At the palate first certain extract sweetness, then a wonderfully balanced play of acid and tannin which shows a great storage and maturity ability. The Barolo Cannubi with its interpretation of the Nebbiolo grape, which is probably the purest at Altare, has been the ambitious project of daughter Silvia since 2011 and represents an exciting rounding off of the already almost unique collection. SUPERIORE.DE

    "Sparkling, brightening ruby garnet. Very clear and inviting nose, smells of ripe raspberries and plums, some rose petals, in the background discreetly of cloves. Round and balanced on the palate, plump ripe fruit, then takes off with bunched, dense tannin, fills the palate richly, final with fireworks of spice." Falstaff

    "There's a pure core of cherry and strawberry in this red, graced by notes of licorice, spice and tar. Balanced and harmonious, with lively acidity driving the long aftertaste. The tannins are suave and mesh well already at this young stage." Wine Spectator

    "The 2016 Barolo Cannubi is a powerful, structured wine that is going to need time to come into its own. Cannubi Barolos are often seductive when young, but Altare's 2016 has quite a bit of tannin that needs time to soften. Even so, all the elements are wonderfully balanced. Cherrys, sweet tobacco, menthol, licorice and dried flowers infuse the 2016 with striking layers of nuance." Vinous

    "Fruit for this wine comes from a leased vineyard site in Cannubi (in the comune of Barolo), and the first year of production was 2011. This is a passion project very much spearheaded by Elio's rambunctious and curly-haired daughter Silvia Altare. The 2016 Barolo Cannubi represents a beautiful departure in the family portfolio. Within this collection of new releases, the Cannubi best articulates the purity of the Nebbiolo grape. Like the other Baroli, it is aged in oak for two years (with 20% new barrique). There is greater varietal purity here with etched and linear fruit tones followed by ethereal smoke, tar and white licorice. I love the mouthfeel too, with that sudden point of cherry sweetness that is followed by elegant texture and acidity. This is a gorgeous release of just 1,500 bottles." Robert Parker
