About the Wine

As a farmer, Luigi Einaudi displayed intelligence and far-sightedness.

   When he first used rooted grafts on American rootstock to combat phylloxera, he brought modern viticulture to the Langhe.

   He decided in 1915 to create a cellar to produce and bottle wine, rather than just selling the grapes. He at once began to buy vineyards that enjoyed a particular position, exposure and soil quality in order to produce the best wines.

   He left the management of the lands and the vines to tenants and their families so they would share in the prosperity that they helped create.

   Every estate was given independence, a revolutionary approach to managing properties in those days. He restored the farmhouses and provided those who worked the land with tractors, mechanical elevators, mowing machines and trailers to help with transport, lighten the work in the fields and improve the living conditions of the country folk.

   Cannubi, designated a world heritage sight, is perhaps the most famous hill in Italy, the most celebrated and prestigious vineyard with the Barolo designation. Historically, it is the oldest Italian cru, given the recognition in 1752. Everything here is perfect: the altitude, exposure, the soils, the layout and microclimate result in a Barolo at the top of the designation!

WINEMAKING: Fermented in steel and concrete containers under strict Temperature control (29°C-31°C), post-fermentation maceration, racked after 22/25 days, decanted, and by maintaining the right Temperature malolactic process is induced. Several months of maturation in barrels on oak, thereafter a long period in bottle to complete the aging.

Tasting Notes:
A wine of great class that expresses the elegance of the territory, of a brilliant garnet red turning slightly amber with time, exuberant in its fragrance of fruit and spices, of great body, full and velvety with a long final taste of goudron and spices.The tannic characteristics guarantee a very long life in bottle in the best vintages. The annual production is of few thousands bottles (variable in function of the vintage).
