Dark red color with hints of purple. Fat ripe black cherries on the nose, plush and forward with hints of vanilla, spices and clove. In the mouth, the fruit is forward and ripe, almost but not quite jammy, kept in harmony by the subtle acidity. It has good attack on the palate, and the mouthfeel is creamy, chocolately and soft with menthol notes. This wine shows the warm Cannubi Boschis terroir to great advantage. The tannins are very sweet and long, but will still require some patience to soften. Though it is more forward and ready than its sibling the Le Vigne Barolo, it still needs time. Finish is long and sweet with oak & spice notes over the black cherries and black fruits.

Wine EnthusiastThis rich Barolo shows ripe plum and prune, forest floor and truffle, layered with well-integrated oak, roasted coffee bean, chocolate and licorice. Reflecting the forward character of the vintage, it has very ripe, refined tannins and is already enjoyable.

Wine SpectatorThis red is full of sweet cherry, strawberry and floral aromas and flavors, allied to a vibrant structure. Balanced and focused, with a mouthwatering, spicy finish. Best from 2016 through 2028. 235 cases imported.
