"Vineyard dust, violet and wild raspberry aromas mingle with notes of dark culinary spices on this fragrant red. Juicy red cherry, clove, licorice and orange zest aromas are framed in bright acidity, while elegant, taut tannins provide the backbone.

"Vineyard dust, violet and wild raspberry aromas mingle with notes of dark culinary spices on this fragrant red. Juicy red cherry, clove, licorice and orange zest aromas are framed in bright acidity, while elegant, taut tannins provide the backbone.

The Wine
100 Nebbiolo from a vineyard belonging to long-time friends of the Borgogno family who share their viticultural philosophy The vineyard name is Gaja Principe and it is located in the commune of Neive 12-15 day maceration/fermentation with selected yeasts in 35 HL upright oak fermenters Ages in large Slavonian oak cask (25HL).

The Estate
The rolling hillside vineyard of Cannubi, in which the Serio and Battista Borgogno winery is based, encompasses just under 15 hectares, about the same size as the prestigious Burgundy plot of Clos de la Roche (which will easily set you back 300 per bottle). Among the cognoscenti, Cannubi is held in the same esteem as any Grand Cru Pinot Noir vineyard in Burgundy. Its history as a place where great wine has always been produced is evident: the oldest surviving bottle of Barolo is labeled, Cannubi -1752.

While the history is important, it is the terroir, and resulting style that separates Cannubi from Barolos other vineyards. The crus of Serralunga and Monforte are known for their power, and to a certain extent, the Barolo DOCG as a whole enjoys the same reputation. The majesty of Cannubi lies in its lifted, floral aromatics with a palate characterized by elegance and approachable structure. As with all great wine, its requisite age-worthiness is undeniable, but unlike many Baroli, Cannubi brings uncommon pleasure in youth.

Francesco Borgogno established Fratelli Serio and Battista Borgogno in 1897. At the time his was the only winery on the Cannubi hill. He served as the mayor of the town of Barolo for more than 30 years, leading an informal association of growers and helping to solve problems in the vineyards and beyond. The estate has been in the family since its beginning, with forth-generation sisters Anna and Paola Borgogno now handing the reins over to daughters Emanuela and Federica.
