Damilano Barolo Cannubi 2014
Complex aromas and flavors of cherry, plum, camphor, eucalyptus and tar mark this supple red. There is ample structure in the form of acidity and tannins, and this finishes long and spicy, with underbrush accents. Best from 2023 through 2040.
The 2014 Barolo Cannubi holds its own; it's bold and intense, with good depth. The tannins are tight, silky and firm. It undergoes a classic aging phase with 24 months in botte grande. The finish is soft, silky and glossy.
Aromas of underbrush, exotic spice and dark-skinned fruit mingle with a whiff of camphor. The assertive palate offers dried morello cherry, clove and star anise alongside firm acidity while tightly knit, close-grained tannins leave a somewhat astringent finish. It's still austere and needs time to fully develop. Drink after 2022.
