Color: The color is garnet red with orange reflections. Bouquet: The bouquet is ample and embracing, with pronounced fruity notes of cherry and plum. Flavor: On the nose there are notes of tobacco, licorice, and cocoa. The taste is harmonious, and pleasantly dry with soft tannins. This wine is broad and full-bodied, with a persistent finish. Pairings: Barolo Cannubi is a sumptuous wine, perfect with the full-flavored Piedmontese cuisine such as white truffle-based dishes and braised meat. Ideal with the refined dishes.

The Damilano 2016 Barolo Cannubi shows depth and a profound nature. This is the DNA of the Cannubi cru, maybe the most celebrated in the appellation with mildly compact, well-draining sandy soils (actually, a mix of 45% sand, 35% silt and 20% clay, to be precise). These conditions contribute to the dark concentration and the firm textural support found here. These assets are particularly apparent in this classic vintage. Dark fruit and dried cherry cede to earthy truffle and licorice. Of these various single-vineyard expressions, the tight tannins on this Cannubi definitely suggest a long drinking window. This wine is my favorite in this flight from Damilano, and this vintage of 40,000 bottles is distinguished by its sheer excellence.

A mix of cherry, leather, iron, wild herbs and spice mark this lithe red, which is firm and dry, yet balanced, with the sweet fruit and lively acidity capping the lingering finish. Best from 2023 through 2042.

The 2016 Barolo Cannubi has a darker profile, with licorice candy, tobacco, and cassis. Here the structure is concentrated, with firm tannins, fresh acidity, and notes of plum skin, black tea leaf, and balsamic. Classically built for the long haul and heartier cuisine, cellar 3-5 years and drink 2024-2042.

Aromas of ripe black-skinned fruit, menthol, leather and tobacco slowly appear in the glass. Chewy and concentrated, the palate shows dried black cherry, licorice and espresso alongside taut close-grained tannins that grip the close. Drink 2024-2031.
