Description

Fragrant blue flower, perfumed berry, leather, cake spice and a balsamic note are some of the scents you'll find on this gorgeous, forward Barolo. The delicious palate offers raspberry, wild cherry, cinnamon, white pepper clove and tobacco. Ripe, polished tannins make this already accessible but it will also age well for a decade or more. Enjoy 2016–2023. - WE95

Damilano's 2011 Barolo Cannubi does a great job of presenting the specific qualities that are most commonly associated with this historic vineyard site. The wine shows elegance, grace and a feminine frame that is toned, lean and muscular. The Damilano family does not own land in Cannubi and in fact they rent their acreage for a monthly sum that must indeed be hefty. But Cannubi has grown in fame partly due to the dedicated efforts of this hardworking estate. The 2011 vintage shows warm tones of leather and tobacco with candied fruit, licorice, cola and dark blackberry. Sweet spice and delicate cinnamon appear on the long finish. - WA93

A lean, racy, tightly wound red, sporting cherry, strawberry, menthol, black pepper and orange peel flavors. Firms up, yet stays long and solid on the finish. Best from 2018 through 2029. 750 cases made. - WS93

Garnet ruby red with orange reflections. The bouquet is ample and embracing, with pronounced fruity notes of cherry and plum, plus notes of tobacco, licorice and cocoa. On the palate, the wine is harmonious and pleasantly dry with soft tannins. It is broad and full-bodied with a persistent finish. - Winemaker's Notes

The Winery

The origins of the Damilano family company dates back to over a century ago, when Guiseppe Borgogno, the great-grandfather of the current owners, started to grow and make wine from his own grapes. This tradition was kept up by Giacomo Damilano, the founder's son-in-law, together with his children, until it was passed on to his 4 grandchildren, who very attentively manage their forefathers' land today. The wines produced are renowned for their upright style and the estate is widely appreciated due to the strictness and passion that accompany all of the company's activities.
