Description

Cannubi is a long hill with a gradual slope lying in the heart of the Barolo area. Here the Helvetian and the Tortonian soils blend together and originate grey-blue marls rich in magnesium and manganese carbonate that on the surface, thanks to the air and the
weathering, turn into grey-white marls: they are made of combination of sand, lime, calcareous and clay (marls of Sant’Agata fossils). Surrounded by higher hills, Cannubi hill is protected from storms and extreme wind and it benefits from a unusual and unique
microclimate. The characteristics of the soil and the extraordinary microclimate give Cannubi an exceptional completeness and equilibrium, a harmonic synthesis between structure and aromas and very elegant tannins which make it enjoyable very early and add complexity as the wine matures.

Garnet-red in colour with ruby reflections. Intense perfume with clean scent of roses, vanilla, licorice, spices and toasted oak. Gentle notes of absinth. The flavour is full and elegant, full-bodied and austere with recurring olfactory sensations. The spicy note and the hints of wood blend perfectly.
