Barrolo Cannubi: vines in the most exclusive position in the whole of the Langhe which have been awarded their own single vineyard name or cru (‘Menzione Geografica Aggiuntiva’). The prestigious quality of the grapes coming from these slopes is determined by the types of soil composition where the types of soil of Tortonian and Elvezian origin come together. The high levels of sand create intense perfumes whilst the alkalinity and concentration of calcium bring a final touch of elegance.
A vivid and brilliant red colour, with light garnet reflections, it is imbued with scents of small red fruits and hints of more mature fruit. The oxygenisation creates more sulphuric notes which recall spices and dried flowers. Opens out fully after a few minutes when its splendid tannins are released, balanced by a full and persuasive body. A strong capacity for aging which should not be overlooked
