Winemaker's Notes:

Intense ruby red color. Aromas of blueberry, cherry and strawberry with hints of spice such as cinnamon, vanilla and pepper. Full-bodied, inviting, sapid with a good balance between acidity and softness.

Perfect for first courses with meat sauces, grilled and stewed red meats.

About Damilano:

The origins of the Damilano family company dates back to over a century ago, when Guiseppe Borgogno, the great-grandfather of the current owners, started to grow and make wine from his own grapes. This tradition was kept up by Giacomo Damilano, the founder’s son-in-law, together with his children, until it was passed on to his 4 grandchildren, who very attentively manage their forefathers’ land today. The wines produced are renowned for their upright style and the estate is widely appreciated due to the strictness and passion that accompany all of the company's activities.

The vineyards, partly owned and partly leased, are situated in the most famous crus of the Langa region: Cannubi, Liste, Fossati, and Brunate, which are almost entirely cultivated with Nebbiolo da Barolo, and to a lesser extent, with Dolcetto and Barbera varietals.
