Barolo Cannubi DOCG

From the famed Cannubi vineyard, one of the most famous in the area and the world. Nebbiolo (Michet and Lampia clones) are grown in two small, highly sought-after plots, with the coveted southern and southeastern exposure and white marl of Saint Agatha. Vinified in stainless steel tanks, with maceration on its skins followed by aging in barrique for eighteen months, in larger oak barrels for twelve months, and nine months in bottle. The classic characteristics of wines from this area shine in Einaudi’s interpretation through its elegance, exuberant fragrances, full body, and a long-lasting finale. Wonderfully to cellar, especially in the better vintages.
