The regal Barolo Cannubi has a nose with a myriad of sweet scents of spice and ripe fruit, that is accompanied by the classical notes of Cannubi (mint and eucalyptus). With a lively taste that is powerful and chewy, but pleasingly elegant. It has impressive structure and decisive tannins with a long and fantastic finish. A highly award wine recognized worldwide. Color - Clear garnet red colour and lively. Perfume - Ethers, persistent, with floral and fruity notes. Taste - Dry, fruity and harmonious, soft but stern, full of long-term persistence due to the tannins. Pairings: red meat: wild game and birds, braised meat, marinated rabbit; seasoned cheese; truffle plates. Optimal wine for meditation.

Cherry, raspberry and tobacco flavors highlight this intense red, which is fresh and steely in structure, turning more elegant as it plays out on the finish. A licorice note wraps it up. Really builds from beginning to end. Best from 2016 through 2032. 327 cases made.

Cannubi is regarded as perhaps the finest vineyard cru in Barolo, delivering clean and elegant wines with power and determination on the finish. This expression stays true to the vineyard, with added touches of soft fruit and spice to the mix.
