Cannubi Barolo DOCG 2015 play

Certified Sustainable, Organic or Biodynamic Green Certified

Region: Italy / Piedmont / Barolo
Grapes: 100% Nebbiolo

Dating back to the 1700s, the oldest single vineyard, or cru, within the commune of Barolo is Cannubi. Of the five parcels that form Cannubi, the most esteemed is Cannubi proper, where Michele Chiarlo owns 4.5 acres of vines that are more than 20 years old.
Chiarlo’s Cannubi plot is the first Barolo vineyard planted to terraces, in guyot style amongst Tortonian and Helevetian calcareous marl. The terraces were created to maximize an exceptional hillside exposure with a more than 50-degree gradient. Exposure is south-southwest. In winemaking, after high-temperature fermentation on the skins, the wine is aged in 700-liter oak tonneaux and in bottle before release.

harvest note

The 2015 vintage had ideal climatic conditions, which allowed the grapes to mature perfectly. The rain in August, followed by a sunny September with good thermal excursion between day and night temperatures, favoured a slow ripening of the Nebbiolo grapes in Barolo, which resulted in a harvest during a normal time period (October 2-5). The Barolo labels from this vintage have remarkable structure and are distinguished by a marked richness and aromatic elegance with notes of sweet fruit and spice. The palate is silky, with tannins that linger. It is a great vintage that can be enjoyed young, but is also has ageing potential.

tasting note

Ruby red in color, with complex notes of small red fruit, liquorice and sweet tobacco on the nose. The palate is enveloping, rich with silky tannins and fantastic fullness and body.

food pairing

Great pairings for this wine are red meat dishes, game and ripe, hard cheeses.
