Cannubi Vineyards, Barolo

The most famous vineyards in the Langhe and in Italy, in the heart of the Cannubi, a small and sought-after hill where it is said that Barolo was born: the oldest bottle from the Langhe is preserved in Bra, with the Manzone family. On it is written “CANNUBI 1752”.
Two extremely precious vineyards planted with Nebbiolo from Barolo that Roberto Einaudi and his daughter Paola purchased from the Gancia family in 1997, completing an enterprise that began 50 years earlier. The deal fell through back then, after the price was unjustifiably raised when the previous owner learned that the purchaser was Einaudi, then president.
