CANNUBI BOSCHIS Barolo 2006
Our Barolo Cannubi Boschis 2006 was officially released in September of 2010, at which time this infant of a wine was already swinging its crib with tenacity - so typical of a young Barolo wine - already climbing, already collecting recognition and appreciative reviews from experienced palates.
Today, time has brought this wine such poise that we can only be proud. The last six years of bottle age in our cellar specifically dedicated to the "sibi&paucis" project has helped make this wine appreciated, better understood and highly sought-after.
On the palate, the tannins are graceful while maintaining the linearity that defines the longevity of this wine.
The 2006 vintage gave us wines of structure and soul, and this wine continues to show those attributes; the nose of ripe black fruits slowly transforms itself into dried fruits, with underbrush, leather and dried rose petals. It is a wine with a great and long finish.

Evolution of the vintage 2006
The alternation of hot and cold periods characterised 2006, during the whole vegetative cycle.
Summery heatwaves in May and June, with a peak of 38°C in July, led us to assume that the year would be similar to 2003; fortunately, things changed from August onwards.
August 2006 was the coldest of the last 5 years, with marked differences between day and night temperatures and, thankfully, some rainfall.
Rain at the very beginning of September risked jeopardising the health of the grape harvest, but then the weather improved.
Despite occasional excesses - the climate situation was never a major difficulty for the vines and allowed the crop to ripen superbly, with a balanced and complete accumulation of all components.
