Fratelli Serio & Battista Borgogno is an old school estate that is back on the rise in Piedmont. One of the oldest estates in Piedmont and the first estate on the now famed Cannubi hill. The estate has always remained in the family, but current owner and winemaker Emanuela has been steadily taking this historic estate to new highs.
The 2018 Cannubi, a small but coveted production, has a lot to offer with its medium body and layered complexity. Dark macerated cherry, cedar, tobacco and mint all come together in what is sure to be a wine that will cellar for 15 years minimum. Each bottle is numbered.
Released in a production of numbered bottles, the 2018 Barolo Cannubi is especially fresh, brilliant and tart in this vintage. This streamlined Barolo exhibits pretty aromas of cassis, white plum, licorice root and pressed violet. This graceful wine shows exceptionally fine and silky tannins.
