Since 1761, the most historical winery in Barolo. The underground cellars continue to represent a rare historical memory of the Langa to this day, and the wines are made according to tradition: long spontaneous fermentations in concrete tanks without the use of selected yeasts, and long periods of ageing, strictly in large Slavonian oak barrels.
Supple, soft, beautiful, pretty, delicious and very unadorned feeling. Very fine. Fresh. A pinosity or grenache-like feel here. Imagine! Red fruited, alpine herbs, fennel, white pepper, soft spice notes. Moreish, delicious and with great energy here. Wonderful expression that has immediate appeal and long term cellaring written all over it.

Very light, raspberry and strawberry, herb, camphor, and almond, almost a light-grenache or alpine Neb quality to this. It’s understated, a wine of delicacy and finesse, sporting ultra-fine dusty tannin, sweetness of fruit with a stony and savoury edge. Bright, succulent and so charming, with a liquorice root aftertaste. It takes a certain level of confidence to make a wine that’s so quiet and nuanced. Old school in the best possible way.

Extremely perfumed with cedar, light mushroom, toffee and plum, following through to a medium to full body with firm, dusty tannins and a long, compact and linear finish. Builds at the end. Real Cannubi magic. Drink after 2026; Rating: 97 Points; James Suckling
