The time is ripe to pick up your Barolos from the lauded 2016 vintage while they're still available, and we've got a couple from the historic Damilano estate that will please discerning palates (without the overly aggressive tannins)! This estate goes back to 1890 when the great-grandfather of the current owners, Giuseppe Borgogno, started bottling his own wine from around the town of Barolo itself. We're offering the historically important Cannubi vineyard Barolo as well as their "calling card" Lecinquevigne Barolo, both a great value!

Their sources from the Cannubi vineyard quickly became the jewel of the estate, though this vineyard's renown goes back further, as there's a historic bottle labeled "Cannubi 1752" (rather than "Barolo"). The Damilano Cannubi Barolo is so true to this site and wonderful 2016 vintage.

JAMES SUCKLING 98 POINTS - "The fruit feels so comfortable here, in the ripe-red zone; it ranges from cherry kernel to chocolate-coated red plums to glazed cherries. Integrated hints of bark and sandalwood. Full-bodied with strapping tannins and muscular, imposing structure and power. Notwithstanding, everything is in striking balance and delivered with remarkable precision and grit..."

WINE ADVOCATE 97 POINTS - "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."
