Barolo ‘Cannubi’, E. Pira Chiara Boschis
The Cannubi vineyard spans approximately 2.5 hectares and is situated at 300 meters in the village of Barolo. From a 0.7 hectare plot within the Cannubi vineyard, with south-southwest facing vines, the soils here are well-draining sandy clay marl with Sant’Agata limestone. Fermentation of this 100% Nebbiolo took place in stainless steel tanks with frequent pumping over. The wine was then aged in lightly toasted French oak (1/3 new, 1/3 second use, 1/3 three+ uses) for 24 months before aging an additional year in bottle. 800 cases produced.
