Yes IPv6 can be subnetted. With hex notation, each digit signifies 4 bits of address space. This allows a byte of data to be summarized by 2 digits. For example 24.172.96.240 can be written in hex as 18.AC.60.FO.

A good book for more information on this is IP Addressing and Subnetting, Including IPv6 (printed by Syngress).

Here is a good link with some additional tips:
