Some chocolate aromas sitting across attractive spice-poached cherries. This has good aromatic clarity. The palate has a very neatly arranged, well-structured style, offering a nice tannin and acid interplay through the finish. This is in good form. Try from 2022.

The 2014 Barolo Cannubi from Chiara Boschis is soft, supple and surprisingly giving at this early stage. Exotic spice and citrus overtones add to wine's considerable allure. Succulent red cherry, cinnamon, orange peel and rose petal notes all lift from the glass in this gracious, sublime Barolo. This is one of the more accessible 2014s I tasted during my fall trip. Given its midweight structure, the 2014 Cannubi may turn out to have a relatively short life, but then again, Nebbiolo often surprises. Today, the wine is exceptionally beautiful

The 2014 Barolo Cannubi perhaps shows less textural richness in this vintage. What it lacks in volume, it makes up for in beautiful aromatic intensity. The bouquet offers territory-driven tones of forest berry, wild rose and dried violets. The freshness and the brightness of those aromas are well intact. The mouthfeel is lean, but it does have ample structure at the back with bright acidity and polished tannins. This expression of Cannubi from Chiara Boschis can be described in a single word: elegant
