In Italy’s Piedmont region, Barolo (made from the Nebbiolo grape) is king and the Damilano Barolo ranks among the highest in the region. The town of Barolo resides in the generous and beautiful Langhe region, and its name was taken on by the “king of wines”. As the weather starts to grow colder and dinners include more rich dishes like roasted beef, braised meat and aged cheeses – be sure to pair them with this Italian aristocratic favorite. 



The Damilano family business dates back to 1890 when Giuseppe Borgogno, the great grandfather of the winery’s current owners, began to vinify his own estate wines. The winery is run by the fourth generation of the Damilano family – Mario, Guido and Paolo Damilano –  who, since taking over in 1997, have attentively managed the family’s land and kept a careful eye on their family’s traditions while expanding the winery and bringing in the most up-to-date technology to make their wines.


Ambassadors of Barolo, the Damilano line culminates in several single vineyard crus that explore the vast and nuanced expression of Nebbiolo in this region.


Here are some decadent wines of Barolo:




This intense and balanced red expresses a complex and diverse spectrum of aromas with rich, dark fruit notes, violet, cherry, plum, and tertiary notes of spice, to- bacco, leather, and truffles. Elegant yet simulatneously rich and soft, com- plex, and refined. Dry, robust, full-bodied, very persistent, and velvety. Pair it with a pasta dish or red meat and braised meat.






On the nose there are notes of tobacco, liquorice, and cocoa. The taste is harmonious, and pleasantly dry with soft tannins. This wine is broad and full-bodied, with a persistent finish. Barolo Cannubi is a sumptuous wine, perfect with the full-flavored Piedmontesecuisine such as white truffle-based dishes and braised meat. Ideal with the refined dishes.



This ample and complex red is the perfect accompaniment to rich dishes such as roasted beef,braised meat, game, tartufo-based dishes and aged cheeses.
