Damilano Nebbiolo Barolo Cannubi 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

Deep red-ruby. Black cherry, truffle and nutty oak on the nose. Lush, sweet, broad and rich, with impressive volume and good grip. Offers a fine-grained texture and lovely sweetness of fruit. Finishes fresh and persistent. Perfect for roasted or stewed red meat as well as raw milk cheeses such as cheddar and provolone.

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

The 2000 Barolo Cannubi, with notes of cinnamon, raisins, and chocolate in addition to its ripe red fruit is sweet and long on the palate, velvety but with a rising density which indicates another dozen years of satisfying drinking ahead. Drink 2005-2017.

The 2001 Barolo Cannubi, a medium ruby, displays a perfumed nose of toasted oak, spices, flowers, mint and minerals. It is a medium-bodied, feminine Barolo that shows excellent persistence on the palate, with pretty flavors of ripe red fruit, finishing with good length and balance. It will benefit from a few years in the bottle to integrate its new oak tannins. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2016.

Deep red with ruby tones. Aromas of marzipan, brown spices, dried rose and truffle. Suave and sweet, with a liqueur-like ripeness to the flavors of red fruits, marzipan, brown, spices, menthol and leather. Nicely integrated acidity accentuates the wine's inner-mouth perfume and contributes to an impression of firm structure. Tannins are fairly tough but ripe.

Damilano is one of Barolo's historic wineries and Cannubi its most historic vineyard cru. All that history combines here to shape a traditional, yet New World wine with plush roundness and intense notes of spice, leather, pipe tobacco, polished red wood and black currant. It's luscious, velvety and tight in the mouth and will improve with age. Drink with venison or game.

Deep red-ruby. Black cherry, truffle and nutty oak on the slightly medicinal nose. Lush, sweet, broad and rich, with impressive volume but also good grip and verve. Offers a fine-grained texture and lovely sweetness of fruit. Finishes fresh and persistent. Next to this, the Liste seems dry.

Ultraclean yet rich and generous, with raspberry and truffle character. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a very long finish. This is like touching cashmere. It caresses your taste buds. Best wine ever from here. Best after 2009.

A rich and complex wine composed of 100% Nebbiolo born in a great year that is known for its early maturing and accessibility qualities.
