The Damilano 2016 Barolo Cannubi shows depth and a profound nature. This is the DNA of the Cannubi cru, maybe the most celebrated in the appellation with mildly compact, well-draining sandy soils (actually, a mix of 45% sand, 35% silt and 20% clay, to be precise). These conditions contribute to the dark concentration and the firm textural support found here. These assets are particularly apparent in this classic vintage. Dark fruit and dried cherry cede to earthy truffle and licorice. Of these various single-vineyard expressions, the tight tannins on this Cannubi definitely suggest a long drinking window. This wine is my favorite in this flight from Damilano, and this vintage of 40,000 bottles is distinguished by its sheer excellence.

The highly successful 2016 Piedmont vintage has produced many impressive wines and some producers, like Damilano, have made their best wines yet. Not many of the highest rated are as good value as Damilano's Cannubi, though. This is one to stock up on.
The Cannubi vineyard is one of Barolo’s greatest sites and the Damilanos own or rent 10 ha of it. Like many producers the Damilanos have given up their French barriques and gone back to traditional Piemontese botte.
