Lots of dried flowers, mushrooms and earth to the ripe and exotic fruit. Full body, chewy and intense tannins and a flavorful finish. The quality of the tannins is impressive with finesse and elegance to the richness. Needs lots of time to come together. Try in 2022.

The nose is initially shy but eventually reveals eucalyptus, mint, rose and a whiff of dark spice. The full-bodied, enveloping palate offers mature black cherry, licorice, clove and espresso set against close-grained tannins.

The bouquet on the 2015 Barolo Cannubi shows more licorice and dark spice than the other new releases from Damilano. There is good volume here, and at the same time, the wine is contained and focused. However, it's just slightly flat, and along with a general lack of intensity, that keeps it from a higher score. I'm picturing this with a rabbit tagliatelle. Some 40,000 bottles were made.
