Damilano Barolo Riserva 1752 Cannubi 2009
WA95+: I am just so pleased by the tendency, practiced now by an ever-growing number of estates, to keep back vintages for later release. This wine from the faraway 2009 vintage is an example of that trend. The 2009 Barolo Riserva Cannubi 1752 offers a very interesting juxtaposition. On the one hand, you feel the warmth of the vintage. The winemaking style at the time seems to prize more succulence and voluptuousness. On the other hand, this wine is already showing the elegant and subtle signs of its evolution. This wine ages in large oak casks for 60 months and in bottle for another two years. Some 6,000 bottles were produced.
