I am impressed by the 2012 Barolo Cannubi. This celebrated vineyard site suffered serious hail damage in the 2012 vintage, and the vintners who farm this cru resorted to severe fruit selection in order to safeguard quality. Damilano has pulled out the best of the vintage for sure. This is a beautiful wine that boasts a delicate and feminine approach. There is pressed rose, dried violet, wild berry, cassis, cola, truffle and tilled earth. Lighter aromas of ash and smoke lift gracefully from the glass. The tannins are silky and long. - WA93

Garnet ruby red with orange reflections in colour. Ample and embracing, with pronounced fruity notes of cherry and plum and notes of tobacco, liquorice and cocoa aroma. Harmonious, pleasantly dry with soft tannins, broad and full-bodied. 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.
