Cannubi is probably the most historical vineyard of the all Barolo region, in Barolo village. We vinify this cru from 1985 and this is one of the two oldest vineyards of ours planted in 1946 on the central crest of Cannubi hill. Low yield ofthis vineyard is due to a special combination of natural factors one of which is the old age of the vines assuring a unique quality. Here it comes the concentration and richness of this Barolo where the charm of Nebbiolo is fully expressed. Harmonious and very fine texture.

Wine EnthusiastMade from old vines in the heart of the historical Cannubi zone, this needs a little time in the glass before it opens to reveal rose, violet, clove, cinnamon, leather and berry aromas. It's very elegant, with concentrated flavors of red cherry accented with balsamic notes and cake spices alongside polished tannins and bright acidity. Drink 2020-2040.

Wine AdvocateThe 2010 Barolo Cannubi is a layered and ethereal wine with dried flowers, candied orange peel, tar, spice, tobacco and cola. That signature touch of dried mint or pressed lavender flower appears at the back. This expression is particularly clean, focused and bright. Paolo Scavino has rented this half-hectare vineyard site since 1985. The mouthfeel is thin and compact. Drink: 2017-2030.
