Winemaker Notes

Garnet red in color with orange reflections. An intense bouquet with notes of violet, balsamic and small red berries. The palate is intense, elegant and persistent, with nuances of red fruit, tobacco, licorice and with ageing truffles and cinnamon.

Barolo Brunate is a wine with a great character, which goes perfectly with roasts, braised meat, game and dishes with mushrooms or truffles.

Critical Acclaim

JS 95
James Suckling
So beautiful and floral with so much perfume and gorgeously ripe fruit. Orange peel underneath. It’s full-bodied with very ripe, soft tannins that give finesse and polish. Lovely flavors.
WE 92
Wine Enthusiast
Eucalyptus, star anise and violet aromas mingle with whiffs of dark spice on this full-bodied red. Concentrated and enveloping, the dense palate offers dried cherry, blackberry jam and ground clove alongside polished tannins the warmth of alcohol. It's already accessible but will also offer several more years of pleasure.
WS 90
Wine Spectator

This red is marked by new oak, yet has the requisite cherry, strawberry, tar, eucalyptus and iron flavors to match. Lean and sinewy, with a lingering impression of dusty tannins lining the gums.

Damilano, Italy
Damilano Damilano Winery Video

The origins of the Damilano family company dates back to over a century ago, when Guiseppe Borgogno, the great-grandfather of the current owners, started to grow and make wine from his own grapes. This tradition was kept up by Giacomo Damilano, the founder’s son-in-law, together with his children, until it was passed on to his 4 grandchildren, who very attentively manage their forefathers’ land today. The wines produced 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, partly owned and partly leased, 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, and to a lesser extent, with Dolcetto and Barbera varietals.

The center of the production of the world’s most exclusive and age-worthy red wines made from Nebbiolo, the Barolo wine region includes five core townships: La Morra, Monforte d’Alba, Serralunga d’Alba, Castiglione Falletto and the Barolo village itself, as well as a few outlying villages. The landscape of Barolo, characterized by prominent and castle-topped hills, is full of history and romance centered on the Nebbiolo grape. Its wines, with the signature “tar and roses” aromas, have a deceptively light garnet color but full presence on the palate and plenty of tannins and acidity. In a well-made Barolo wine, one can expect to find complexity and good evolution with notes of, for example, strawberry, cherry, plum, leather, truffle, anise, fresh and dried herbs, tobacco and violets.

There are two predominant soil types here, which distinguish Barolo from the lesser surrounding areas. Compact and fertile Tortonian sandy marls define the vineyards farthest west and at higher elevations. Typically the Barolo wines coming from this side, from La Morra and Barolo, can be approachable relatively early on in their evolution and represent the “feminine” side of Barolo, often closer in style to Barbaresco with elegant perfume and fresh fruit.

On the eastern side of the Barolo wine region, Helvetian soils of compressed sandstone and chalks are less fertile, producing wines with intense body, power and structured tannins. This more “masculine” style comes from Monforte d’Alba and Serralunga d’Alba. The township of Castiglione Falletto covers a spine with both soil types.

The best Barolo wines need 10-15 years before they are ready to drink, and can further age for several decades.

Responsible for some of the most elegant and age-worthy wines in the world, Nebbiolo, named for the ubiquitous autumnal fog (called nebbia in Italian), is the star variety of northern Italy’s Piedmont region. Grown throughout the area, as well as in the neighboring Valle d’Aosta and Valtellina, it reaches its highest potential in the Piedmontese villages of Barolo, Barbaresco and Roero. Outside of Italy, growers are still very much in the experimentation stage but some success has been achieved in parts of California. Somm Secret—If you’re new to Nebbiolo, start with a charming, wallet-friendly, early-drinking Langhe Nebbiolo or Nebbiolo d'Alba.
