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.

Wine EnthusiastEnticing scents of rose petals, violet, tilled earth and leather mingle on this wine hailing from the historical heart of the celebrated Cannubi vineyard. The vibrant palate offers crushed dark cherry accented with cinnamon, clove and a touch of vanilla alongside silky tannins. Balanced and loaded with finesse, it will develop more complexity over the next few decades. Drink 2020-2040.

Wine AdvocateThe 2010 Barolo Cannubi is beautifully finessed and pure with etched aromas of cola, tar, pressed violets and balsam herb that are straight out of the Nebbiolo playbook. It shows power and extreme elegance in equal measure. Compared to the 2009 vintage that was lighter in the mouth, the 2010 edition is both generous and enduring. It shows the very best of Cannubi, the vineyard cru responsible for one of the most important interpretations of the mighty Nebbiolo grape variety. I look forward to revisiting this wine in ten years or more. Drink: 2017-2030.

Wine SpectatorPolished and focused on the cherry, strawberry and raspberry flavors, with plenty of structure for support. Effortlessly fresh and balanced, showing sweet fruit and refined tannins on the long finish. Best from 2017 through 2035. 725 cases made.
