Damilano Barolo Cerequio 2011
The Damilano family has been producing wines since 1890 when Giuseppe Borgogno began to vinify his own estate wines instead of selling his grapes to other wineries. It is with great passion that Giacomo Damilano, the founder’s son-in-law, developed with his children a love for the vineyards, selecting and caring for them with great care in order to improve the quality of the wines. Over time, the winery’s production was transformed into a jewel that was passed down with pride in 1997 to Giacomo’s grandchildren, who continue to manage the winery today.
Wine AdvocateThe 2011 Barolo Cerequio is a balanced and beautiful wine from one of the most panoramic vineyard sites in the appellation. It ages for two slow years in botte grande and rests in bottle for an additional year before its commercial release. The bouquet reveals delicate nuances with a degree of the menthol and chopped herb characteristics you sometimes get with Nebbiolo from Cerequio. The finish is extra smooth and silky. This wine will age soundly for a decade or more. Drink 2016-2030.
