Tasting Note:

A different style and shape to the Arborina entirely, less dense and finer boned, If a little more austere and classical initially. These finely chiselled tannins add great cut and thrust to an immensely seductive flavour profile of strawberries, kirsch and woody spices. Crisp yet enticing and heady. 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.
