Damilano Barolo Cannubi Mathusalem 2009
It has an ample nose with evident notes of cherry and plum that evolve into hints of tobacco, liquorice and cocoa.
The wine has a striking garnet, ruby red color with subtle orange reflections.
On the palate, it has a harmonic flavor that is pleasantly dry, with soft tannins and full body.
Born from the noble Nebbiolo varietal cultivated in Barolo, this wine benefits from the generous, calcareous-clay soil with a good quantity of sand that is found on the prestigious Cannubi hill. An old vine wine, Barolo Cannubi is crafted from vineyards planted in 1935 with desirable southern exposure.
An elegant partner for roasts, game, stews, and well aged cheeses. To fully appreciate this wine it deserves to be served in large glasses.
