  • Cannubi is the apogee of Barolo. Aromatically intense, aristocratic and with superb persistence, it shows notes of blackcurrants, liquorice, cinnamon, mint and tobacco. Elegant and seductive, with a great structure and a silky texture, this celebrated cru is noted for its extraordinary completeness and personality.

Fermentation took place in 55-hectolitre oak barrels, with 20 days of grape skin contact. The cap was plunged to encourage the extraction of color, flavors and fine tannins, during which the temperature was maintained at 27° to 30°C. The wine was matured in average-sized oak casks for two years, followed by further refinement in the bottle at least 15 to 16 months before release.

Michele Chiarlo is one of Piedmont's most prestigious winemakers, producing outstanding wines from some of the most exceptional sites in Piedmont, including Barolo’s world-famous Cannubi and Cerequio vineyards. Founded in 1956 by Michele Chiarlo and now run by his sons Alberto and Stefano, the Chiarlo philosophy “is to capture the terroir” from their sustainably cultivated vineyards, which hold the VIVA certification. With judicious use of oak, they handcraft a selection of wines suitable for aging and some which can be enjoyed earlier. Their stunning collection of Barolo and Barbera wines consistently receive 90+ points from Wine Advocate, James Suckling and Wine Enthusiast.
