Damilano Barolo Cannubi 2001
from Piedmont, Italy
Wine Spectator Top 100 Wines of 2005
"The grapes for Damilano's Barolo come from rented or supervised vineyards in various areas of Barolo country. In 2001, as in most vintages, the quality of this Barolo matches that of the estate's two single-vineyard Barolos, Liste and Cannubi, which come from the family-owned 11 acres of Nebbiolo vines in the Cannubi, Liste and Fossati vineyards, all in the commune of Barolo." -Wine Spectator
A sumptuous wine which combines with white truffle-based dishes and braised meats. Garnet red with hints of orange, it has a balanced and delightfully dry flavour. 100% Nebbiolo.

Loved my first few bottles of this wine but the last two bottles I bought were stored wrong or something because my drain ended up enjoying them. Too bad because i really loved this smooth, food friendly vino.

A lucid ruby red with a nose of sensuous cocoa, cherry, and tobacco. In the mouth the structure is liquid velvet where cherries and cocoa and tobacco mingle with exquisitely balanced acids and tannins. The Finish is perfect - a lingering decrescendo without a missed note.
Research indicates this will age well through 2008 or so. $33 is fairly priced. Any less is a bargain and demands that you pick up a bottle.
