The Damilano family business dates back to 1890 when Giuseppe Borgogno began to vinify his own estate wines. It is with great passion that his son-in-law Giacomo Damilano, 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. Ambassadors of Barolo, the Damilano line culminates in several single vineyard crus that explore the vast and nuanced expression of Nebbiolo in this region.
Damilano Cerequio is a dense and intense Barolo with a fresh, fruit-driven personality and a velvety texture. The nose offers inviting notes of crushed cherry, plum, orange peel and wild rosemary which carry through to the smooth, well structured palate. Underlying earthy notes of leather, dried mushroom and tobacco complement balanced acidity, sweet tannins and a long, polished finish.
"A mix of pure cherry, wild rosemary and sage notes converge in this fruity yet strict red, which is balanced, but needs time to integrate the dusty, gum-coating tannins. Best from 2019 through 2035. 208 cases made." - Wine Spectator
"The 2010 Barolo Cerequio shows a nice sense of energy and vibrancy. Sweet fruit aromas and toasted spice make for an excellent balance. The finish is long, polished and nuanced. Drink: 2017-2030.” - Wine Advocate
"Aromas of tar, berry and flowers follow through to a full body, with fine tannins and a licorice, berry and Spanish-cedar aftertaste. Needs two or three years of bottle age.“ - James Suckling
