Wine Advocate-Parker :
The Marchesi di Barolo 2012 Barolo Cannubi shows some restraint at the beginning and feels slightly shut down overall. This Cannubi Barolo takes longer to open, and this does not come as a surprise, given the delicate floral and berry flavors that can be achieved in this vineyard site when optimal conditions are met. Following a few swift swirls of the glass and a little encouragement, you get licorice, balsam herb and toasted spice. Having said that, this vintage is definitely more subdued compared to many of its peers.
