Cannubi

Varietals Planted: Nebbiolo

Bottling: Sandrone Cannubi Boschis

Vineyard description:

Cannubi is one of the great cru vineyard sites of the entire Barolo region. Its name is synonymous with a degree of ripeness, richness, freshness and complexity that is known throughout the world.

The Sandrone Barolo Cannubi Boschis is a single-cru wine made from vines grown in a specific sub-section of the Cannubi hill. Cannubi extends north from the village of Barolo and has been planted to Nebbiolo on its south and east exposures for at least a century. The Cannubi runs approximately southwest-northeast and is entirely inside the commune of Barolo, from which it displays the characteristics of wines from this village: profound aromatic complexity and comparatively softer tannins in relation to vines grown in Monforte or Serralunga. The “Boschis” subzone of the Cannubi (also known, historically, as Monghisolfo) is near the northern end of the hill, and is located directly across the little valley from the Sandrone winery building.

The Cannubi Boschis subzone has a particularly good exposure to the south and southeast in a small bowl or “conca” that helps hold the warmth in the early morning. Its soils are sea deposits of calcareous clay.
