Marchesi di Barolo Barolo Cannubi 2008 750ml

Marchesi di Barolo Barolo Cannubi

Garnet-red in color with ruby reflections. Intense perfume with clean scent of roses, vanilla, licorice, spices and toasted oak. Gentle notes of absinthe. The flavor is full and elegant, good- bodied and austere with recurring olfactory sensations. The spicy note and the hints of wood blend perfectly. The Barolo Cannubi reaches its maturity after 6 years from the harvest and can be enjoyed throughout its life between 6 and 25 years. With its great structure, this wine is particularly adapted to red meats, braised dishes and game in general. It is an ideal accompaniment for cheeses and our typical local cuisine Blend: 100% Nebbiolo 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 - The Wine Advocate : "The 2011 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. " 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."

VINIFICATION and AGING:Maceration of the skins lasts 10 days, during which the fermenting juice is regularly recycled from the bottom to the top of the tank in order to integrate the tannins softly and extract the color slowly. Once the fermentation is finished the natural sugars of the grape are totally converted into alcohol. Then wine is racked into concrete tanks that are lined in fiberglass and insulated by cork where it will rest at the post fermentation temperature of about 22° degrees C. (72° F.). This temperature prompts a natural process called Malolactic fermentation that changes the Hard Malic acid into a softer Lactic acid, this process will last about two months. The Wine is aged for two years, a part in Slavonian oak barrels (30 or 35 hectoliters / 789-947 U.S. gallons) and the other part in small French oak barrels (225 liters) that are moderately toasted.The vineyard finds again its unity by assembling the wine in the traditional big oak barrels and ends the fining in the bottle for 12 months, before going into the market.
