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 Brunate cru soil originated in the Tortonian Miocene epoch. It is a blue-grey marl rich in calcium carbonates and manganese, with a mixture of fine sand and clay as well as limestone called Sant’Agata marl. Its soil is made of sand (25%), loam (45%), and clay (30%) and produces tannic, solid-bodied, and powerful wines. The microclimate is excellent, a true paradise for vines, especially in terms of plant health.The vineyard is located at a height of about 300m a.s.l. and has an east-south-east sun exposure.
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, liquorice 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.
