Cannubi 1752 Barolo Riserva DOCG
Piemonte

“1752” is the name of the newest Damilano Barolo Cannubi Riserva, in honor of the year in which the historic bottle was first marked “Cannubi.” Damilano is proud to present this Cannubi Riserva as it embodied the principles by which Damilano abides; rigor, complexity, and expression of terroir. This is a limited production wine, made only with the very best vintages, available in 6-bottle wooden boxes and magnums.
