Damilano Barolo Cerequio 2010

Damilano Barolo Cerequio 2010

Sku: 042895

 Wine Spectator 95 points (Jun 24 2015)
A mix of pure cherry, wild rosemary and sage notes converge in this fruity yet strict red. Balanced, but the dusty, gum-coating tannins will require adequate time to integrate. Best from 2019 through 2035. From Italy.-B.S.

Wine maker notes
Cerequio is an important vineyard known for its superior terroir, comprised of loose, deep soil. The land gives the vines greater access to water, which favors the production of wines that are more structured, tannic and powerful. Located in the Piedmont town of La Morra, the vineyard is in a small area called Cerequio, where the Nebbiolo varietal thrives in calcareous-clay soil with a low percentage of sand. This 100% Nebbiolo wine is produced from Nebbiolo vines that are over 30 years old and enjoy great ventilation and south-east exposure. This wine has a gratifying garnet-red color with highlights which evolve to burnt orange hues as it ages. It has a fruit nose of cherry and violet accompanied by hints of balsamic, vanilla and liquorice. Intense, elegant and persistent in taste, this wine expresses red fruit notes that give way to tobacco and leather as it ages. This wine is best served at 61F-63F.
