Damilano Barolo Riserva 1752 Cannubi 2010
WA96: Damilano is on a roll with this special Riserva. The 2010 Barolo Riserva Cannubi 1752 is infused with savory tones of leather, spice and smoke. Those specific aromas add to the immense sense of sophistication and elegance that is exuded from the bouquet of this deeply layered Barolo. Opening to a dark garnet color with little light saturation, this beautiful Nebbiolo is expressive and articulate; it is an especially worthy spokesperson for this classic vintage. At its core, the wine delivers dark, luscious dark fruit that still has primary freshness at this young stage. Otherwise, this Riserva is also far enough along to show tertiary tones of balsam herb and licorice.
