Cannubi is a long, gently sloping hill right in the middle of the Barolo area. Here the Helvetian and the Tortonian soils blend together forming blue-grey marls rich in magnesium and manganese carbonate that turn light grey on the surface when they come into contact with the air and weather elements. The result is a combination of different clays and fine sands saturated with a strong limestone component of magnesium carbonate and manganese. Technically called Marls of Sant’Agata fossils, but in jargon known as Toû, they are composed on average of 55% clay, 30% sand and 15% limestone. Surrounded by higher hills, the Cannubi hill is protected from storms and high winds and it benefits from a unique microclimate.
Barolo Cannubi matures 6 years after being harvested and reaches its peak condition between 6 and 25 years of age.
This wine is garnet-red in color with ruby reflections. Its intense nose has distinct traces of roses, vanilla, licorice, spices, toasted oak and a gentle scent of absinth. The flavor is full and elegant, good-bodied and austere with remarkably elegant tannins. The spicy personality and the hints of wood blend perfectly.
Food pairings: this wine is well matched with traditional Langhe egg pasta, Tajarin, ravioli, red meat dishes, stews, braised meats and game. It is also the ideal companion for sheep and goat’s milk and mildly-aged cheeses.
