94pts Robert Parker's 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. Some 40,000 bottles were released (and the glass weight used on this wine and the other cru selections is on the heavy side).

94pts James Suckling

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.

93pts 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.

Winemaker Notes

Garnet ruby red in color with orange reflections. The bouquet is ample and embracing, with pronounced fruity notes of cherry and plum and notes of tobacco, licorice and cocoa. On the palate, the wine is harmonious, pleasantly dry with soft tannins, broad and full-bodied. Persistent finish.

Cannubi is a sumptuous wine, perfect with the full-flavored Piedmontese cuisine such as white truffle -based dishes and braised meat. Ideal with the refined dishes of the great international gastronomy.

Winery Notes

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.
