Ships in 3-5 business days.
Cannubi is a legendary vineyard in Barolo, renowned for producing the most renowned Barolos. We have been crafting a wine from this hallowed site since 1985, with two of our oldest vines planted back in 1946. This Barolo the expression of Nebbiolo magnified, showing incredible concentration and decadent richness. On the palate, it offers a very harmonious and refined texture.

This aromatic red offers floral, cherry, leather and earth notes, picking up savory juniper, tamarind and tobacco flavors for detail. Tense and linear, with firm, dusty tannins lining the finish. Best from 2025 through 2043.

Sadly after this vintage, we only have one more. This Cannubi will no longer be produced after 2018. Enjoying it while we can, the Paolo Scavino 2017 Barolo Cannubi is fragrant and rich, showing a gorgeous level of aromatic purity and intensity that could not have been easy to achieve in the very hot vintage. Tones of wild cherry, blackberry, spice and sweet earth rise from the bouquet with prominence. This is a lovely wine that defies most everything we know about 2017.

This is so perfumed with dried flowers, blackberries, spices and citrus peel. Medium-bodied with fine tannins that spread across the palate, giving this impressive focus and texture as you taste it. Like a real Cannubi, it’s very elegant and approachable, but you know it’s for the long term. Better in 2024 and onwards

The 2017 Barolo Cannubi is ripe with leather, cola spice, tobacco, and dried cherry. There is building structure and grip as well as a fairly long finish that continues to dry the palate. Hold 3-5 years and enjoy 2024-2046.

This wine’s dark fruit tones are layered with notes of dusky spice, candied rose petal and soft tobacco. Savory hints emerge with air, the flavors all framed by suave tannins. An elegant wine, this shows impressive nuance in warm and dry vintage. Scavino’s 2018 Cannubi will be the last release of this wine after the family gave up its long-term lease on the plot it has rented since 1985.
