Terroir Clay, sand and limestone

Marchesi di Barolo Cannubi Barolo is a great example of Nebbiolo from one of the top areas in the Barolo appelation. Its intense nose has distinct traces of roses, vanilla, liquorice, spices, toasted oak and a gentle hint of absinth. The flavour is full and elegant, yet never too much, with remarkably elegant tannins. Two years of barrel ageing lend a spiciness and beautifully integrated toastiness.

Today the Abbona Family continues the work that began more than two centuries ago: producing high quality wines meant to enrich, year after year, the history of this important cellar where modernity and tradition meet and where a great heritage of vineyards and knowledge has been passed down from parents to children for over five generations.

The terroir is a combination of different clays and fine sands saturated with a strong limestone component of magnesium carbonate and manganese. Technically called Marls of Sant’Agata fossils, but in jargon known as Toû, they are composed on average of 55% clay, 30% sand and 15% limestone. The wine ages for two years, part in Slavonian oak barrels (30 or 35 hectolitres) and the other part in small French oak barrels (225 litres) that are moderately toasted. The two parts are then blended in traditional big oak barrels and the wine completes its fining in the bottle before going onto the market. Barolo Cannubi matures 6 years after being harvested and reaches its peak condition between 6 and 25 years of age
