The Paolo Scavino Cannubi 2009 is issued from one of the most historical vineyards of the all Barolo region. The wine reveals pronounced and rich fruity aromas, but with aging the sensuality begins to emerge. At once delicate yet powerful, the Paolo Scavino 2009 is a wonderful, complex Barolo loaded with character as well as potential. This cru is the expression of Nebbiolo supreme elegance and complexity with its harmonic and classic structure and very fine texture.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The celebrated Cannubi cru showed uneven results in 2009. The 2009 Barolo Cannubi definitely reflects the strong summer sunshine during that year. Slightly overripe tones of raspberry and strawberry emerge from the glass. Once they blow off, the wine reveals nuanced tones of licorice, dark fruit, anisette and dried mint. There's a touch of softness on the close that makes the wine appealing now. This Barolo is suitable for near-term drinking. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2019.
