Tenuta Carretta Barolo Cannubi 2012
CANNUBI. ** angels sing, light flickers **
If aliens came to earth to steal a vineyard, they’d start with Cannubi. We are blown away today to offer this killer Barolo for over 50% OFF its retail price, direct from the winery...every last bottle we could possibly get. This one is for the ages! 92 POINTS to boot -- WOW!
Tenuta Carretta’s (one of the region’s most historic wineries) brilliant Cannubi Barolo is GRIPPING with the pedigree and deep intensity of the 2012 vintage that will likely have you reaching for a thesaurus to grasp everything you are experiencing. Masculine but medium-bodied, and FLOWING with classy Barolo loveliness, this should be on your super-short list if you love Piedmontese wines (At THIS price? C’mon!). And if you’re just curious, this is a PERFECT bottle to introduce yourself to the wonderful and addictive world of Barolo, oh yes!!
So, back to the brilliance in this bottle --- one of the region's oldest and most treasured “crus” (it first appeared on a bottle in 1752 (!!), this wine will captivate you as much as the price you will pay (you saw that, right?) with its powerful black tea, dried cherry, fresh rose petals, mineral and spicy cigar box notes. The finish is, well, still going on, and we had the last sip about 5 minutes ago. SO --- whatever you do -- get this tiny-production super-score while we have it! Amazing!
Of Barolo, Cannubi is the oldest cru. Thanks to the vines’ exposure to sun and to the particular microclimate, it is a wine of grand character, elegance and longevity Intense garnet red colour with aroma's of rose, undergrowth, cacao and spices, with notes of citrus.
