Damilano
Cannubi Barolo DOCG
Piemonte

Cannubi is the flagship wine of the Damilano line. This single vineyard cru is produced from Nebbiolo cultivated on the renowned Cannubi hill that has a prestigious tradition of wines that dates back to the 1700s, predating the creation of the Barolo category, itself.

Cannubi owes its distinct character to the unique composition of the Cannubi soil.  At the intersection of terrain from two different geological periods, the Cannubi soil’s fine sand and high calcium levels give the final wine a singular elegance and concentrated polyphenols.
