Winemaker Notes

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.

WE 96
Wine Enthusiast
Intensely fragrant, this boasts enticing floral scents of rose and iris that mingle with red berry and camphor. Featuring a heady combintion of finesse, structure and accessabilty, the smooth, delicious palate delivers crushed raspberry, strawberry compote and star anise alongside a backbone of polished tannins.
RP 94
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The Poderi Luigi Einaudi 2017 Barolo Cannubi draws its fruit from a very special site (as all Cannubi enthusiasts can attest to) with grayish Sant'Agata marls soils with a mix of sand, clay and calcareous material. These light, well-draining soils tend to produce high-pitched wines with plenty of lifted or vertical aromatic intensity. The wine boasts aromas of wild berry, purple rose, dry mint and crushed stone. The wine's texture is lean and silky. There's plenty of power to drive the wine's future bottle evolution.
JS 94
James Suckling
A generous, fruity Barolo with ripe, polished tannins to the vivid fruit and citrusy acidity. It’s full-bodied and rather round with a soft, juicy finish. Very fresh. Subtle. Drink in 2024 and onwards.
V 94
Vinous
The 2017 Barolo Cannubi is sensual and inviting from the very first taste. What the 2017 might lack in terms of structure or complexity it more than makes up for with its open, embracing personality. All the elements come together so effortlessly. Sweet red/purplish fruit, rose petal, mint, cedar and sweet pipe tobacco build as this creamy, resonant Barolo develops in the glass. Drink it over the next 15-20 years.
W&S 94
Wine & Spirits

The sandy-clay soils of Cannubi yielded a fl oral and elegant wine in the 2017 vintage. The wine unfolds with flavors of red cherry and raspberry poised in a medium-bodied frame, the red fruit laced with notes of mint and white pepper. It offers some near-term appeal, but will be better in a few years when the fruit has fleshed out.

JD 93
Jeb Dunnuck
The 2017 Barolo Cannubi is from the south and southeast facing hillside of Cannubi at 220 meters of elevation of the Barolo commune. Its aromatics are rich with tobacco, dried cherry, and licorice candy. The palate is classic and savory, with building tannins, dusty earth, cherry pit, and resin. Hold for 3-5 years and drink 2024-2042.
WS 92
Wine Spectator
As much savory as fruity, this red reveals juniper, menthol, cherry, tar and tobacco flavors, allied to a lithe frame. Remains vibrant through the lingering finish, where the tannins emerge. Best from 2024 through 2040.

Luigi Einaudi Winery Image

It all began in 1897, when 23-year-old Luigi Einaudi (Italy’s first President) purchased the first of the Einaudi estates at San Giacomo. Today, the President’s descendants have chosen to maintain continuity with their extraordinary heritage while looking to the future, turning the oldest wine property in the Dogliani area into a cutting-edge classic. Granddaughter Paola Einaudi, her son Matteo Sardagna, and Giorgio Ruffo – together with technical director Lorenzo Raimondi and winemaker Beppe Caviola – have proven a winning team. Today, the total surface of the property (10 farmsteads) is 358 acres, 111 of which are under vine. The vineyards, in turn, are subdivided into seven terroirs. Four of these are in Dogliani (four hills, one of which is the Vigna Tecc cru, another the premier area of San Luigi), while Barolo comprises two crus (Terlo and Cannubi). Terlo is part of the estate’s original nucleus (marly-calcareous soil at 984 feet above Cannubi hill, at an altitude of 722 feet above sea level), provide a Barolo of superb breed and longevity. The underground winery, located at Tecc and completed in 1993, was gradually doubled in size and provided with state-of-the-art barrel cellars, sophisticated humidity and temperature control systems, and a new-generation bottle cellar stocking over 240,000 bottles.

The center of the production of the world’s most exclusive and age-worthy red wines made from Nebbiolo, the Barolo wine region includes five core townships: La Morra, Monforte d’Alba, Serralunga d’Alba, Castiglione Falletto and the Barolo village itself, as well as a few outlying villages. The landscape of Barolo, characterized by prominent and castle-topped hills, is full of history and romance centered on the Nebbiolo grape. Its wines, with the signature “tar and roses” aromas, have a deceptively light garnet color but full presence on the palate and plenty of tannins and acidity. In a well-made Barolo wine, one can expect to find complexity and good evolution with notes of, for example, strawberry, cherry, plum, leather, truffle, anise, fresh and dried herbs, tobacco and violets.

There are two predominant soil types here, which distinguish Barolo from the lesser surrounding areas. Compact and fertile Tortonian sandy marls define the vineyards farthest west and at higher elevations. Typically the Barolo wines coming from this side, from La Morra and Barolo, can be approachable relatively early on in their evolution and represent the “feminine” side of Barolo, often closer in style to Barbaresco with elegant perfume and fresh fruit.

On the eastern side of the Barolo wine region, Helvetian soils of compressed sandstone and chalks are less fertile, producing wines with intense body, power and structured tannins. This more “masculine” style comes from Monforte d’Alba and Serralunga d’Alba. The township of Castiglione Falletto covers a spine with both soil types.

The best Barolo wines need 10-15 years before they are ready to drink, and can further age for several decades.

Responsible for some of the most elegant and age-worthy wines in the world, Nebbiolo, named for the ubiquitous autumnal fog (called nebbia in Italian), is the star variety of northern Italy’s Piedmont region. Grown throughout the area, as well as in the neighboring Valle d’Aosta and Valtellina, it reaches its highest potential in the Piedmontese villages of Barolo, Barbaresco and Roero. Outside of Italy, growers are still very much in the experimentation stage but some success has been achieved in parts of California. Somm Secret—If you’re new to Nebbiolo, start with a charming, wallet-friendly, early-drinking Langhe Nebbiolo or Nebbiolo d'Alba.
