Product Profile Sheet 750ml
Damilano is one of the historical Barolo producing farms, founded over a century ago by Guiseppe Borgogno. The tradition was kept up by his son-in-law Giacomo Damilano and with his children, until it was passed on to his four grandchildren, who very attentively manage their forefathers’ land today. The wines 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. The vineyards are situated in the most famous crus of the Langa region: Cannubi, Liste, Fossati and Brunate, which are almost entirely cultivated with Nebbiolo da Barolo.
“Showing good intensity and big aromatics, the 2013 Barbera d’Alba Lablù is a no-fuss wine that would pair with easy pasta and lasagna recipes. It ages in wood for 12 months (in both botte grade and tonneaux). That aging time has served to tame the naturally high acidity of this native Italian grape. You still get the freshness, but it is well contained.”
