2000 Einaudi, Barolo, Nei Cannubi (RT 94) Purchased on release and stored in my cellar since, this wine is now smack dab in its prime drinking window. Showing a translucent garnet hue, the bouquet is equally open knit with gorgeous notes of dried rose petal, sous bois, dried white flowers and sous bois. The mouth feel is equally attractive, weightless and magnificently balanced, showing what mature Barolo is all about. Lovely, bright acidity, excellent fruit concentration, and silky fine tannin on the long finish. A truly inspired showing for this bottle, it outperformed all expectations and is a stand out for this hot, generally over-rated vintage. Terrific! Drink now-2025+ to catch it at peak!
