Spanning a mere 15 hectares (37 acres) in the Piedmont region of northern Italy, Cannubi is considered to be one of the greatest vineyards anywhere in the world. The highly sought-after plot of land grows the Nebbiolo grape, producing Barolo – one of the best red wines of Italy.

Determining Cannubi’s precise boundaries is a very complicated and emotionally-charged issue. Conflict between producers over the vineyard’s true designation continues as wineries seek to have the coveted “Cannubi” wording on their labels.

To see exactly why this 250-year-old vineyard is so special, James Suckling, one of the world’s top wine critics, visited Cannubi to talk with the winemakers involved. This film chronicles their thoughts, feelings and passion toward their craft – and the vineyard that fuels it all.

Con i suoi soli 15 ettari (37 acri) di estensione, Cannubi, situata in Piemonte, è considerata una delle migliori vigne del mondo. Su questo ricercatissimo appezzamento di terreno, cresce l’uva Nebbiolo da cui viene prodotto il Barolo – uno dei migliori vini rossi italiani.

Determinare i confini precisi di Cannubi è una questione molto complicata e piena di carica emotiva. I vari produttori sono in conflitto fra loro sulla questione di quale sia la reale estensione di Cannubi, dato che tutte le aziende vorrebbero apporre l’ambita dicitura di “Cannubi” sulle proprie etichette.

Per capire come mai questa vigna vecchia di oltre 250 anni sia così speciale, James Suckling, uno dei più illustri critici di vino del mondo, l’ha visitata ed ha intervistato i produttori coinvolti. Questo film racconta le loro idee, i loro sentimenti e la passione verso il loro mestiere – e la vigna che tutto ciò alimenta.
