Barolo, Cannubi, 2016

2 cases
Equiv. £150.00 per bottle

Tasting Note:

A wonderful mix of seduction and precision. Glossy, rich wild strawberry fruit emerge from the complex stony minerality. Great detail and definition here, as well as seductive, melting tannins. A saline note and a dash of dark chocolate follow. A constantly evolving wine. Animated but slick. A very noble and complete Barolo. Just as the Altares' share-cropping agreement for Brunate ended, they reach a deal to lease some well-placed vines in the original, middle part of Cannubi. Their first vintage was 2011. Made in the same way as the other Barolos (excepting UnoPerUno) - short fermentation and maceration followed by 24 months in 30% new oak. Less than 1500 bottles were made.
