    Elio Atare Barolo Cannubi 2011 is produced from the Nebbiolo grape variety. This light ruby wine and its garnet reflections displays notes of cherry, rose and spice, a perfect reflection of the Barolo terroir. It’s refreshing fruit flavors and light notes of rose petals and flowers are enticing. This wine presents its elegance and warmth in the mouth, accompanied by firm tannins.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    The 2011 Barolo Cannubi represents the inaugural vintage of this new classic. Elio Altare lost his lease on the Brunate cru, but gained a 2,500-square-meter section of Cannubi (and Cannubi Valletta) in its place with 20-year-old vines. Elio says that the two vineyards are actually very similar with comparable exposures and sandy soil types. To my palate, however, this wine tasted riper and more evolved than the Brunate. It reveals bold berry notes of strawberry, prune and flinty mineral nuances. The vintage heat is more evident in this Cannubi expression. The wine also shows soft lines and a yielding texture.
