Barolo DOCG Cannubi 2015

Damilano is one of the oldest wineries in Barolo. The family business dates back to 1890 when Giuseppe Borgogno started cultivating and producing wine from the grapes from his own vineyards. Giuseppe  improved the general quality of the vinification system and of the wines, turning the winery into a “jewel” of the Langhe area. In 1997 Giuseppe passed the winery on to his grandchildren Paolo, Mario and Guido. Together, they are working to keep and improve the level of the quality of the Damilano wines.

About the Vineyard

The Cannubi Cru is in found within one of the 6 core zones which comprise the fiftieth UNESCO site in Italy. A mixture of Tortonian and Helvetian calcareous marl gives the grapes intense aromas of cherry, plum, tobacco, rose and violet. Its low potassium and high calcium/magnesium content offer the wine a fine and polished touch. Calcareous with 45% sand, 35% limestone, 20% clay. The vineyard is located at about 270 m. a.s.l. and has an south-south-east sun exposure.

Tasting Notes

Garnet ruby red in color with orange reflections. The bouquet is ample and embracing, with pronounced fruity notes of cherry and plum and notes of tobacco, liquorice and cocoa. On the palate, the wine is harmonious, pleasantly dry with soft tannins, broad and full-bodied. Persistent finish.
 

Food Pairing

Cannubi is a sumptuos wine, perfect with the full-flavoured Piedmontese cuisine such as white truffle -based dishes and braised meat. Ideal with the refined dishes of the great international gastronomy.
