Ideally drink 2020 through 2030. Decant for 3 hours prior to serving

Grown in one of the most highly regarded Barolo Cru’s, the Virna Borgogno Barolo Cannubi Boschis is destined to become a classic, delicious example of the region. Highly perfumed, with sweet red berry, cocoa, and tar aromas, this wine is delicious with decanting, but will be even more delicious in 4-5 years. The palate is elegant and powerful at the same time, full bodied but with silky tannins, and flavors of dried cherry, baking spices, truffles, and toasted hazelnut. Slightly drying on the finish, some cellar time would benefit this wine greatly.

Pheasant, quail, or rich red meat dishes are all tailor made to suit Barolo’s firm-but-silky body. Stronger cheeses, gamier pates, or liver mousses would also be delicious with this wine.

The Cannubi Cru in Barolo, though one of the largest, is also one of the most sought after due to its unique combination of soils, yielding wines that are both light and powerful; like an iron fist in a velvet glove. After a soft pressing and 10-12 days of maceration, the Virna Borgogno Barolo Cannubi Boschis sits in steel tanks until spring, when malolactic fermentation completes. Half of the wine then spends 18 months in large oak Tonneau (500 litres), and the other half is put in smaller Slavonian oak barriques for 6-12 months. After this aging process, it is bottled and allowed to settle for another year, after which it is ready for release.
