The spectacular 1996 Barolo Cannubi Boschis offers aromas of cassis, cherry liqueur, and flowers. It is dense, superb, full-bodied, with fabulous intensity as well as layers of extract. Muscular, concentrated, broad, and powerful, it demands 5-6 years of cellaring. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2020. Robert Parker's Wind Advocate 94-96

Readers will find much to admire in Luciano Sandrone's 1996 Barolo Cannubi Boschis. More than anything else, the 1996 surprises by how sensual and open-knit it is, particularly within the context of the year. Silky, nuanced and super-expressive, the 1996 is a real joy to taste and drink today. Hints of smoke, licorice and tobacco lead into a core of dark red and purplish stone fruits. In 1996, Cannubi Boschis is a Barolo of pure grace and class. -- Antonio Galloni 95

Wonderful aromas of freshly cut roses, with blackberry, strawberry and cream. Medium- to full-bodied, with fine tannins, good acidity and a fresh, fruity finish. Excellent now, but will improve with age.--1996 Piedmont retrospective. Drink now. 1,100 cases made.–JS  Wine Spectator 93
