Born in the Cannubi vineyard of the Einaudi estate in the Cannubi area of Barolo at 220 m., positioned South South-East. The land is composed of grey white Sant’Agata marne, rich in sand.
A wine of great class that expresses the elegance of the territory, of a brilliant garnet red turning slightly amber with time, exuberant in its fragrance of fruit and spices, of great body, full and velvety with a long final taste of goudron and spices.
The tannic characteristics guarantee a very long life in bottle in the best vintages.
The annual production is of 12.000 bottles.
