95 Points James Suckling

A beautiful red with soft and velvety tannins, juicy fruit and a walnut and dark-berry character. Full body. Lovely and genuine.

93 Points Decanter

Cherry and plum aromatics. Beautiful concentration of fruit and structure with dried berry, savoury meaty notes and superb elegance. Amazing quality and concentration.

93 Points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

This is one of the most popular and important wines made by Marchesi di Barolo. The 2013 Marchesi di Barolo Barolo Cannubi is a fine and delicate expression with big floral intensity. You get dried lavender and rose hip on first nose. Below those more fragrant layers are solid aromas of wild cherry and red currant. This expression of the Cannubi cru is accessible yet delicately complex and nuanced at the same time.

93 Points Wine Spectator

Very pure, this evokes rose, cherry, strawberry, mineral and tobacco aromas and flavors. Lean and taut, finishing with a chalky sensation on the finish. Offers fine harmony and length, with a dry, minerally finish. Best from 2022 through 2038.

90 Points Wine Enthusiast

Tight and focused, this opens with aromas of wild berry, red rose, culinary spice and a whisper of menthol. Chiseled and austere, the palate offers sour cherry, pomegranate, white pepper and a hint of anise. Youthfully assertive fine-grained tannins and bright acidity provide the framework. Give it time to soften and fully develop. Drink 2023–2033.

2012 Marchesi di Barolo Barolo Cannubi Reviews

94 Points James Suckling

The aromas are complex and impressive with hazelnut, cocoa, light plum and cherry. Hints of flowers. Full and velvety texture yet fresh and very fine. Subtle finish. So balanced that it’s wonderful to drink now but will be even better in three or four years.

92 Points Wine Spectator

This starts out silky, offering cherry, strawberry, tobacco and briar flavors. The chewy tannins chime in midpalate and dominate the still-tight finish. Stays fresh, with licorice, earth and mineral elements lingering. Best from 2020 through 2033.

90 Points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

The 2012 Marchesi di Barolo Barolo Cannubi shows some restraint at the beginning and feels slightly shut down overall. This Cannubi Barolo takes longer to open, and this does not come as a surprise, given the delicate floral and berry flavors that can be achieved in this vineyard site when optimal conditions are met. Following a few swift swirls of the glass and a little encouragement, you get licorice, balsam herb and toasted spice. Having said that, this vintage is definitely more subdued compared to many of its peers.

2011 Marchesi di Barolo Barolo Cannubi Reviews

96 Points James Suckling

A wine with tension and form with beautiful blueberry, spice and mineral character. Full body, polished and chewy tannins and a long and flavorful finish. Needs three or four years to soften but wonderful future. One of the best Cannubis from here in a long time.

92 Points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

The 2011 Marchesi di Barolo Barolo Cannubi is distinguished by great intensity and integrity of fruit. In general, I found wines from the Cannubi cru to show more ripeness in the 2011 vintage and that is also the case here. Dark blackberry, spice, leather and tobacco form a united aromatic fruit. The wine shows vigor, power and a rich mouthfeel that lasts long on the palate. Hold this wine for 3-5 more years.

92 Points Wine Spectator

Cherry, menthol and black pepper aromas segue to black cherry, tar and tobacco notes as this red plays out. Remains balanced and elegant, with a generous texture and fruit-filled aftertaste. Best from 2018 through 2030. 750 cases imported.

91 Points Wine Enthusiast

This opens with aromas of dark berry, forest floor, dried rose, new leather and a balsamic note. On the palate, notes of white pepper, coffee and clove accent a core of crunchy red berry. Racy acidity and assertive tannins provide the framework. Drink 2018–2023.

91 Points Wine & Spirits

Showing good freshness for the warm vintage, this offers notes of mint and licorice that spice up the wine’s flavors of sweet plum and dried cherry. It opens with a perfumed porcini scent and takes on more of those mushroom flavors over time. The tannins are finely abrasive, well integrated with the wine’s earthy notes, allowing a long and balanced finish.

2010 Marchesi di Barolo Barolo Cannubi Reviews

 95 Points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

From Barolo’s most celebrated (and recently expanded) single-vineyard, the 2010 Marchesi di Barolo Barolo Cannubi is a deeply floral and elegant expression with sharp contours that give the wine a sense of focus and definition. Pressed violets and dried jasmine lift from the glass and with just a few swirls, the wine begins to reveal red cherry, licorice, balsam herb, moist earth and anise seed. This is a great wine from Marchesi di Barolo, one of the region’s legacy producers. Drink: 2017-2028.

94 Points James Suckling

A 2010 Barolo with a pretty depth of fruit and spice character. Full body, with chewy tannins and fresh finish. Integrated tannins here. Very well-crafted red. Finesse. Try it in 2017 but already a beauty.

92 Points Wine Spectator

Leather, licorice and tar notes accent the core of cherry in this sinewy red. There’s plenty of fruit to balance the structure, though this finishes on the chewy side for now. Fine length. Best from 2018 through 2030.

90 Points Wine Enthusiast

An inviting fragrance recalls rose, violet, berries and a whiff of leather. The understated palate offers up sour cherry accented with subtle oak, toast, espresso, vanilla and baking spices alongside drying tannins. Drink 2018–2025.

A rich, dense red, bursting with cherry, leather, menthol and subtle licorice flavors. Lush and firm at once, finding equilibrium in the end. Best from 2016 through 2029.

2008 Marchesi di Barolo Barolo Cannubi Reviews

91 Points James Suckling

Aromas of rose petal and ripe fruits follow through to a full body, with chewy tannins and a juicy finish. A little loosely knit but clearly outstanding. Give it two or three years to come together.

90 Points Wine Enthusiast

In this vintage, this historic wine shows a different personality with its ripe aromas of blackberry and raspberry jam. It opens with notes of spice, tobacco and black pepper.

90 Points Wine Spectator

A red that’s rich and open, but needs air to gain harmony and show off the flavors of cherry, plum and spice. Offers, a fine, lingering finish

2007 Marchesi di Barolo Barolo Cannubi Reviews

95 Points Wine Enthusiast

Almost over the top, this beautiful Barolo from the most celebrated cru of them all—the iconic Cannubi vineyard—delivers maximum pleasure and intensity. This is a soft and velvety wine, with cherry, cassis, leather, moist tobacco and licorice aromas over extracted concentration and tight tannins. The wine needs more time to age and once it does, it can be paired with beef or aged cheeses.

91 Points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

The 2007 Marchesi di Barolo Barolo Cannubi shows excellent density and mid-palate sweetness. Sweet red fruit, spices, flowers and mint are some of the notes that take shape in the glass. The Cannubi is an attractive, pliant Barolo that should drink well with a minimum of cellaring. A soft, caressing finish rounds things out in style. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2022.

2006 Marchesi di Barolo Barolo Cannubi Reviews

91 Points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

The 2006 Marchesi di Barolo Barolo Cannubi is quite a bit firmer than the 2007, but also shows more typicity with regards to vintage and site. This is a decidedly mid-weight, gracious Barolo that floats on the palate with expressive red fruit, licorice, spices and anise, all supported by the firm, insistent tannins of the year. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2026.

91 Points Wine Spectator

Big, bright cherry and plum fruit graces this red, which starts out open and round, only to tighten up with dense, dusty tannins on the finish. There’s plenty of fruit, but needs time. Best from 2015 through 2028.

2005 Marchesi di Barolo Barolo Cannubi Reviews

94 Points Wine Enthusiast

Thanks to its sandy, well-draining soils, the Cannubi cru delivers delicate and elegant wines with refined and complex aromas. Violets, orange zest, Spanish cedar, smoke and wild berries all emerge from the nose of this deeply layered wine. You could pair this Barolo with white truffles and other equally delicate or aromatic foods.

91 Points Wine Spectator

Blackberry and green tobacco aromas follow through to a full-bodied palate, with a firm, tight tannin structure and a fresh finish. Needs time to soften and open up. Best after 2012. 3,500 cases made.

2004 Marchesi di Barolo Barolo Cannubi Reviews

92 Points Wine Enthusiast

This Cannubi Barolo offers dark concentration and a bold personality with elements of sweet spice, black fruit, toast, chocolate fudge, licorice and anise. It’s an elegant and linear wine with a direct and immediate delivery followed by jackhammer tannins and cooling freshness. Drink after 2015 with game meat and chestnut dressing.

90 Points Wine Spectator

Aromas of crushed blackberry, with plum and hints of walnut, lead to a full-bodied palate, with silky yet chewy tannins and a berry and chocolate aftertaste. Best after 2011.
