The Wine’s Story
This wine comes from the vineyards of “Cannubbio”. Cannubbio is the more powerful of the two Barolo crus – its tannins are a little more prominent, its flavors exhibit a bit more mushroom and earth, and it ages more slowly. Thus it’s a good candidate for cellaring, although in most vintages the wine is approachable upon release, especially after decanting.
