Notes about product

Arguably the most famous vineyard of Barolo, Cannubi's southern exposure on soils of Tortonian and Helvetian origin, combined with a large percentage of sand, allows for consistently balanced and healthy vines.

Winemaking notes

Wine is aged for a minimum of 2 years in oak barrels and approximately 1 year of bottle aging.

Tasting notes

On the nose, sweet, ripe cherries, plums and spices, accompanied by mint, balsam and eucalyptus. The palate is structured and powerful, yet warm, soft and elegant.

TOP 100 WINES OF 2019

June 2019

Impressive roses and finely ground spices with a bright red-cherry core, as well as a fresh wild-herb thread. The sense of focus and purity here is stunning. The palate has a deeply juicy and fresh core of tightly knit tannins that carry immense power with impeccable balance. Elegantly executed wine with profound length.
