94 Point Score in The Wine Advocate
"The 2018 Barolo Cannubi is a bright and lively expression with wild fruit and cassis over a tight and elegant mouthfeel. This is a wine of texture and persistence, and you feel its silky effects on the palate for many minutes. It spreads wide and deep, revealing savory flavors of spice, licorice and a metallic touch of iron. The alcohol content is a bit much at 15%, but there is enough texture here to soften its effects.

94 Point Score by James Suckling.com
"A nice balance of ripe berries and almost plummy fruit on the nose, following through to a medium-to full-bodied palate, where more savory notes of fresh nuts and ferns really get going, adding complexity and interest. The fine-grained tannins give good support. Like the intensity and balance here. Try from 2024."

93 Point Score by The Wine Spectator
"A supple red, with pure rose and cherry themes supported by vibrant acidity and refined tannins. Balanced and refreshing, with accents of mint, pine and mineral that linger. Best from 2025 through 2042."

NOTESDamilano is one of the oldest wineries in Barolo, dating back to 1890, when Giuseppe Borgogno started cultivating grapes and producing wine from his own vineyards.  Damilano owns one of the largest sections in the historical core of the hill and nearly all of the section just to the west, known as Cannubi Valletta.
