Marchesi di Barolo Cannubi 2015
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.
