Description

Wine:
"Deep ruby red with garnet highlights increasing with age. The bouquet is complex and well developed, exceptionally rich and full with scents reminiscent of the Langhe hills (black cherry, truffle and nutty oak) and developing intense spice aromas. Pleasantly dry and balanced, austere with a long finish. This important Barolo will find it perfect accompaniment with rich dishes such as roasted beef, braised meat, game, tartufo-based dishes and aged cheeses." -Winery

Vineyards:
"This wine is sourced from several different vineyards locations. Selected grapes come from Vigneto Castellero (Barolo), Vigneto Bussia (Monforte d’Alba), Vigneto Parussi (Castiglione Falletto), Vigneto Fossati (La Morra), Vigneto Monvigliero (Verduno). The soils are calcareous clay and the expositions of the vineyards are South-East, East, West, South-West." -Winery

Vinification:
"Skin maceration for 10-20 days. Fermentation occurs at a controlled temperature and malolactic fermentation is completed in oak. The wine is aged for 36 months in barrique (20% second use, 80% large oak barrels)." -Winery

Winery:
"This winery has ancient traditions. Its origins go back at the end of 1800, when Giuseppe Borgogno, great-grandfather of the actual owners, begun to grow and vinify vines. Now, thanks to the work of the young members of the family, Damilano is enjoying a deserved success. They produce the classical Langhe wines, above all, a good Barolo."

"The vineyard of 'Cannubio' (or Cannubi) was already famous before the coming of the wine Barolo. The prestige of Cannubi never knew misfortune, in fact it always improved the name of the firms that bought its grapes or owned a small part of these vineyards. The 10 Piedmontese giornate (less than 4 hectares) place under the road that goes to the pasture and exposed to the east, are named 'Liste'. All the witnesses gathered agree saying that 'the soil is good' while higher and toward the woods the soil tends to be particularly cold and damp. The Damilano family is making a smart calculated turn for their 'cantina' from forty year old industrial base to aritsanal frontier. Gifted in two Barolo sites, the fifty year old 'Cannubi' vines are delivering superb, inviting results, while the "Liste" vineyard, a four hectare eastern exposure, produces a mysterious strength for the Barolo district. A classified player to watch." -Winery
