Cerequio is an amphitheater of vines on the Langhe terrace, in the municipality of La Morra.
Its soil made of sand (20%), loam (50%), and clay (30%) produces tannic, solid-bodied, and powerful wines. The vineyard is located at a height of about 320 m (1050 ft.) a.s.l. and has an eastward sun exposure. The olfactory bouquet of this cru is rich and complex: the dominating scents are cherry, violet, and balsamic notes, as well as refined hints of vanilla, liquorish, dried rose, and tar.
Cannubi is considered the Grand Cru vineyard for the Barolo, an extraordinary wine in terms of style and elegance.
The absolute high quality of the grapes picked on the Cannubi hill is the result of a unique land composition: an unevolved soil with clay-rich marl, grey and white on the surface. The soil in which the Damilano vines are found features a high percentage of sand (up to 45%) that gives the grapes intense aromas of cherry, plum and tobacco, rose and violet in sequence. Its low potassium and high calcium/magnesium content offer the wine a fine and polished touch. Its color is intense and bright, and it has a high polyphenol concentration.
At first sight, what is most striking is its ruby red color with hints of maroon and orange reflections, and an ample, enveloping scent, with clear fruit notes of cherry and plum, and herbal notes of tobacco, liquorish, and cocoa.
The wine embraces the palate with a harmonic, pleasantly dry flavor, with soft tannins and a perceivable body and completeness.
