Damilano Barolo 2005

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

AWE blind tasting - beef extract, deep fruit, something weird though, a bit of brett,?, leathery, with some poop, nice balance, nice tannins, crisp yet fine grained, dilute, not much heart here, nice but really very little intensity, 83-84

The origins of the Damilano farming company date back to over a centry ago, when Giuseppe Borgogno, the great-grandfather og 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-low, together with his children until it passed on to his four grandchildren, who very attentively manage their forefather's land today. The wines produced are renowned for their upright style and the estate is widely appreciated thanks to the strictness and passion that accompany all of the company's activities. Read less

AWE blind tasting - more bitter cherry, earthy, slightly brothy, tight rose note, lots of white earth, lovely young balanced nose, a slight root beer bitterness on the nose, camphor - bitter fruit entry is very nice, richly fruited but not fruity, with a nice spice tone, fresh fruits, crisp tannins, very well balanced medium scaled Barolo with lovely fruit and incipient complexity, camphor and spice on the long finish, stern and aggressive but I like this 90-91
