Cannubi Boschis Barolo 2010
The Barolo Cannubi Boschis from 2010 is a wine that will effortlessly age for 20+ years, rewarding the patient collector for his or her restraint, as these bottles are exceptional delicious and drinkable now. The nose soars from the glass: cherries, raspberries and forest strawberries, all with lift and precision, with floral notes and spice adding complexity and depth.
The wine has great fruit and structure in the mouth, and though delicious now, will continue to improve and evolve for another 15+ years in the bottle. The finish is one of length, power and a sense of stillness - the wine just goes on and on, seemingly never reaching the horizon where it ends.

Evolution of the vintage 2010
The significant precipitations of both snow and rain in the winter, replenished the groundwater reserves after the warm 2009 season. The spring showed alternating periods of wet and dry. Bud break was inconsistent depending on exposure and altitude of individual parcels. Moderate warmth began before the flowering which occurred in the normal time frame.
The season continued with weather patterns that we would consider “normal” by historic standards but would be considered “cool” today. This allowed for a long cycle, and the plants never suffered from excess heat. Other than a week of moderate heat at the time of the veraison during the first 10 days of August (which gave a very consistent color change to the red grapes) temperatures never exceeded the norms of a “classic” year.
In 2010, it was essential to manage the crop loads and the vegetative cover at the level of the individual plant. Crop thinning and judicious use of green harvesting were essential. The Nebbiolo plots in the Barolo zone performed spectacularly well, giving fruit of both great structure and delicacy. The long harvest period allowed individual plots to be harvested at the correct time without being rushed.
2010 can be considered a “once in a generation” vintage for its grace and seemingly effortless ability to age. The combination of climactic conditions yields fruit of uncommon maturity and complexity.
Harvest took place from October 8th until 17h.
