Damilano Barolo

Damilano Barolo Cannubi 2008: Coming from a 37-acre vineyard in the Piedmont region of northern Italy that’s been on labels since 1752, which is even before the term “barolo” was coined, this nebbiolo has tarry flavors at its core that are nicely rounded by pretty florals on the fringes and stewed fruits throughout.

Fairly light in color for its booming flavors but strong in tannins, the wine evolves once opened into an intriguing work of art, offering a window into the pleasures of barolo for under $100. See
