Wine AdvocateThe 2008 Barolo Cannubi emerges from the glass with freshly cut roses, sweet raspberries and spices, all supported by French oak. It is a very pretty, attractive wine with plenty of vineyard character and personality. The Cannubi is also the most feminine of the 2008s I tasted from Damilano. A silky, refined finish rounds things out in style. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2026.

Wine EnthusiastDamilano's wines are distinguished by the full, generous style they embody. This gorgeous expression shows intensity and power presented in elegant and measured terms. The finish is characterized by notes of red cherry, spice, cedar and dark cola.

Wine SpectatorA broad swath of cherry, plum, leather and licorice notes highlights this red, shored up on a firm base of dusty tannins. Sweet fruit makes a lasting impression. Best from 2015 through 2030. 600 cases imported.
