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.
“Layered and thick with that high caliber of red fruit intensity you should expect from this celebrated single vineyard. Brunate is known for wines that are powerful and well structured. You get both those qualities here. But you also get enduring aromas of red fruit, blue flower, spice, anise seed and toasted nut that give the wine a sense of gravitas and profound inner dignity. This is a faithful expression of place and vintage.” Monica Larner ~ June 28th, 2015 – 94 POINTS *2011 vintage, 2012 not yet rated.
