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.
“The 2015 Langhe Nebbiolo Marghe offers a soft and fragrant expression of this beautiful grape from Piedmont. This informal wine opens to bright ruby-garnet color and shows lean-body appeal. The fruit is on the sweet side (or at least the sweet side of Nebbiolo) with cassis and dried raspberry. The tannins are absolutely integrated and this wine drinks perfectly right now. If you are new to Nebbiolo, this is an extremely likable wine. You really can’t beat this excellent value.” Monica Larner ~ August, 31st, 2017
