Notes from the Winemaker:
Born in the Cannubi vineyard of the Einaudi estate in the Cannubi area of Barolo at 220 m., positioned South South-East. The land is composed of grey white Sant'Agata marne, rich in sand.
A wine of great class that expresses the elegance of the territory, of a brilliant garnet red turning slightly amber with time, exuberant in its fragrance of fruit and spices, of great body, full and velvety with a long final taste of goudron and spices.
The tannic characteristics guarantee a very long life in bottle in the best vintages.
The annual production is of 12.000 bottles.
Fermented in steel tanks under strict temperature control (30Â°C-32Â°C), post-fermentation maceration, racked after 22/25 days, decanted, and by maintaining the right temperature malolactic process is induced. Several months of maturation in barrels on oak, thereafter a long period in bottle to complete the aging.

Ratings & Reviews
94 Points - James Suckling:
"Aromas of cream, light toffee, mushrooms and plums follow through to a full body, silky tannins and a fresh and clean finish. Very tannic yet the tannins are ripe and polished. Try in 2021." - (July 11, 2017)
93 Points - Antonio Galloi's Vinous:
"The 2013 Barolo Cannubi brings together the sweet, floral aromatics that are so typical of this site, with silky tannins and vibrant fruit. Sweet red cherry, wild flowers, mint and rose petals built into the finely-spun finish. Sensual and beautifully layered in the glass, the 2013 Cannubi is a highly appealing wine to drink now and over the next decade, perhaps beyond. The Cannubi also gives the distinct impression it will drink well earlier than the Costa Grimaldi." - Antonio Galloni (Feb 2017)
93 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Aromatic, displaying rose, strawberry, cherry and currant flavors, accented by leather, tobacco, iron and tea notes. Firm tannins lay a base of support as this plays out on the finish. All the components are there, but this needs time. Best from 2022 through 2040. 1,000 cases made." â€“ BS (Jun 30, 2017)
