Garnet-red in color with ruby reflections. Intense perfume with clean scent of roses, vanilla, licorice, spices and toasted oak. Gentle notes of absinth. The flavor is full and elegant, good-bodied and austere with recurring olfactory sensations. The spicy note and the hints of wood blend perfectly. The Barolo Cannubi reaches its maturity after 6 years from the harvest and can be enjoyed throughout its life between 6 and 25 years.
Wine Maker Notes
VINIFICATION and AGING:Maceration of the skins lasts 10 days, during which the fermenting juice is regularly recycled from the bottom to the top of the tank in order to integrate the tannins softly and extract the color slowly. Once the fermentation is finished the natural sugars of the grape are totally converted into alcohol. Then wine is racked into concrete tanks that are lined in fiberglass and insulated by cork where it will rest at the post fermentation temperature of about 22° degrees C. (72° F.). This temperature prompts a natural process called Malolactic fermentation that changes the Hard Malic acid into a softer Lactic acid, this process will last about two months. The Wine is aged for two years, a part in Slavonian oak barrels (30 or 35 hectoliters / 789-947 U.S. gallons) and the other part in small French oak barrels (225 liters) that are moderately toasted.The vineyard finds again its unity by assembling the wine in the traditional big oak barrels and ends the fining in the bottle for 12 months, before going into the market.
