Famous long before the wine region of Barolo even existed, the "cru" or top vineyard of Cannubi are home to some of the most elegant, complex and structured Italian red wines. Cascina Adelaide, sourced from the western side of Cannubi, expresses the nobility of this vineyard perfectly. It's a wine of great class that showcases the elegance of Barolo, with a brilliant garnet red color, leading to exuberant notes of fruit and spices, full and velvety with a long finish. We actually popped a bottle of Cannubi last night, and can personally attest to the beautiful, fruit forward nature of Cascina Adelaide, with bright acidity and longevity in the cellar. Just starting to hit its four decade drinking window, we recommend letting the bottle breathe for an hour before serving. A steal at $59.99, don't miss the lowest price for Cannubi in this acclaimed 2017 vintage!
"Such beautiful aromas of plums and fresh oranges here, as well as cut flowers. Full-bodied with a solid core of fruit and ultra-fine tannins that go on for a very long time. A gorgeous wine with subtle class. Drink in 2024 and onwards." James Suckling, 96 Points
"Cascina Adelaide is based in the town of Barolo and is part of an elite group of vintners with access to Cannubi fruit, one of the most prized vineyard sites in the appellation. The 2017 Barolo Cannubi is distinguished by a delicate embroidery of fruit, with a dusting of mineral and ash that lift gently from the bouquet. You'll notice background tones of blue flower and sweet spice. I really love the evolving style and newfound elegance being proposed by this estate. This was a 4,500-bottle release."

"Violet, iris, wild berry and camphor aromas are front and center. Smooth and full-bodied, the delicious, elegant palate delivers crushed Morello cherry, raspberry compote and baking spice alongside tightly knit but refined tannins. Drink 2024–2029." The Wine Enthusiast, 94 Points
"There is a nice counterpoint between the strawberry and cherry flavors and balsamic notes of juniper, eucalyptus and rosemary. Firm, yet graceful, with a line of resonant tannins underneath. An iron note chimes in on the aftertaste. Best from 2024 through 2042. 670 cases made, 300 cases imported." The Wine Spectator, 93 Points
