    Winemaker's Notes:

    The wine has a striking garnet, ruby red color with subtle orange reflections. It has an ample nose with evident notes of cherry and plum that evolve into hints of tobacco, licorice and cocoa. On the palate, it has a harmonic flavor that is pleasantly dry, with soft tannins and full body.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The Damilano family owns the biggest piece of the Cannubi vineyard, with about 11ha. This fabulous red has sensual aromas of dried flowers, sweet fruit and chocolate. Fullbodied, with fine tannins and a delicious finish.

    The 2008 Barolo Cannubi emerges from the glass with freshly cut roses, sweet raspberries and spices, all supported by French oak. It is a very pretty, attractive wine with plenty of vineyard character and personality. The Cannubi is also the most feminine of the 2008s I tasted from Damilano. A silky, refined finish rounds things out in style. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2026.

    The Wine Advocate

    Damilano’s wines are distinguished by the full, generous style they embody. This gorgeous expression shows intensity and power presented in elegant and measured terms. The finish is characterized by notes of red cherry, spice, cedar and dark cola.

    A massive wine with Cannubi richness, this is pillow-soft in its tannins, even as they come back earthy, firm and lasting in the end. Scents of cedar and truffle meld with anisette spice, making this approachable now and over the next several years. For roast squab and wild mushroom risotto.

    Deep, dark red. Sweet oak, a resiny, cedary balsamic quality and attractive floral lift on the nose. Sweet but restrained, offering an enticing fine-grained texture and a continuing floral character. Not the last word in lift but the rising finish shows smooth tannins and noteworthy length.

    Vinous / Antonio Galloni

    A broad swath of cherry, plum, leather and licorice notes highlights this red, shored up on a firm base of dusty tannins. Sweet fruit makes a lasting impression. Best from 2015 through 2030.
