Luigi Einaudi Barolo Cannubi 2017

Dogliani, Cuneo, Piedmont, ItalyToday Einaudi is owned and run by great-grandson Matteo Sardagna, who works with enologist Beppe Ca Viola; Zvonimir Jurkovic, cellar master and vineyard manager; and Roberto Mozzone, logistics manager. The fruit in Cannubi comes off two nebbiolo clones, Michet and Lampia, grown in two highly regarded plots with the southern and southeastern exposure and on the white marl of Sant'Agata (30% Sand, 55% Clay, 15% limestone). The latest ferments are in concrete followed by 30 months in larger oak barrels and nine months in bottle. Elegance is the game's name at Cannubi, along with fragrant nuances of fruit and earth and an extraordinarily long finish. It is a wine to age whenever possible.
