Cannubi is a long hill with a gradual slope lying in the heart of the Barolo area. Here the Helvetian and the Tortonian soils blend together and originate gray-blue marls rich in magnesium and manganese carbonate that, on the surface, thanks to the air and the weathering, turn into grey-white marls: they are made of a combination of sand, lime, calcareous and clay (marls of SantAgata fossils). Surrounded by higher hills, Cannubi hill is protected from storms and extreme wind and it benefits from a unusual and unique microclimate. The characteristics of the soil and the extraordinary microclimate give Cannubi an exceptional completeness and equilibrium, a harmonic synthesis between structure and aromas and very elegant tannins which make it enjoyable very early and add complexity as the wine matures. The vineyards, East / south-East exposed, are mapped on the sheet N.7 of the community of Barolo, lots 44, 170, 219, 231, 235, 242. [+]
