Born in the Cannubi vineyard of the Einaudi estate in the Cannubi area of Barolo at 220 mts., 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. Twenty four of the thirty six months of maturation in French Allier barriques, thereafter a long period in bottles to complete the ageing.
"The 2007 Barolo Nei Cannubi is a dark, hulking wine of uncharacteristic power and richness. Waves of dark fruit completely cover the palate in a bold style that sits on the razor’s edge of overripeness. The due south facing Cannubi vineyard seems to have been somewhat penalized in 2007. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2027. "
The Wine Advocate
"From one of Barolo’s most celebrated and historic estates, this elegant Cannubi expression offers toasted notes of hazelnut, vanilla, cherry and chocolate over a lean, streamlined mouthfeel. The intensity of this wine and its endurance on the palate is remarkable."
"The black cherry and dark plum flavors are in a firm grip of tannins in this muscular, beefy red. Eucalyptus and cedar flavors add interest as this tightens up on the finish. More like 2006 than 2007 in character. Best from 2015 through 2035."
