Poderi Luigi Einaudi Barolo Cannubi 2003
The ensuing Barolo's superb concentration is enhanced and fine-tuned by élevage: 18-20 months in French barriques, 10-12 months in barrel. The result is grandeur and complexity, luscious aromas, layers and layers of velvet, spice, goudron, truffles; long, long finish and a long, long cellar life of over 25 years.
Intense aromas of blackberry, tar and dried rose follow through to a full-bodied palate, with fine tannins and a long, caressing finish. Pretty, with a lovely texture. I like this as much as the 2001. Best after 2010.
