From the Cannubi Vineyard. The heart of the entire Barolo region, Cannubi originated around 11 million years ago through sedimentation from the Padano sea. It is the most famous and renowned cru of Barolo, mentioned in historical documents that date back to as early as 1700. It has an excellent soil intricacy, formed by large clayey limestone marls and pleasant climate that make this hill one of the most suitable vineyard farming areas in the world. The Barolo from Cannubi has more elegance and longevity than all other Barolo. In this cru the winery owns vineyards that cover around 1.30 hectares, with southern exposure and an altitude that varies from 290 to 320 meters above sea level. - Winery Note
Our estate covers about 39 hectares, 8 of which are cultivated with woods and 31 with vineyards. About 60% is cultivated with Nebbiolo, with the remainder divided between Dolcetto, Barbera and Freisa. Five of these hectares are dedicated to the cultivation of white grape varieties, two of Riesling and three of Timorasso. And we also have the immense fortune to possess five of the best Barolo cru vineyards: Liste, Cannubi, Cannubi San Lorenzo, Fossati and San Pietro delle Viole.
In all the vineyards we own, we use just organic fertilisers, with no herbicides, and carry out only eco-friendly treatments. This is why our grapes leave zero residue; clean grapes are essential to make high-quality wines. In 2016 we began the conversion that will take us to organic certification for the 2019 harvest.
