    The Damilano 2016 Barolo Liste is released one year later compared to its peers. It shows beautifully chiseled intensity, impressive depth and length. A lot of dimension and energy are locked within this bottle. The Liste (a cru located in the village of Barolo) offers fruit tones and spice, but the flavor profile of this well-structured wine is best described as mineral driven and etched. This is one for the cellar. 7,400 bottles were produced,

  • James Suckling 95

    This is a dense, layered 2016 with so much finesse in the quality of the tannins, which provide a very layered and vertical texture that runs across the palate. It’s full-bodied, very long and powerful, yet maintains finesse and focus. Rather tight and closed-up right now. Try after 2025.

  • Wine Enthusiast 91

    Aromas of violet, underbush and pipe tobacco emerge from the glass. The concentrated palate offers blackberry jam, clove and toasted hazelnut alongside polished tannins and the warmth of alcohol. Drink 2023–2029. KERIN O’KEEFE

    Barolo DOCG Liste 2016
  • Liste is a sub-zone of the prized Barolo area. One of those small, restricted areas that, due to quality and historicity, can be indicated on the label. This is done by the Damilano winery, in particular, one of the celebrities of the Langhe. The grapes, as they should, come from the Liste cru in the commune of Barolo. We are about 350 metres above sea level, with a beautiful south and south-east exposure. Old vines, covering an area of about two hectares. Intense garnet red colour with a few orange reflections, the nose reveals a great Barolo, characterised by a fine and elegant bouquet, with hints of berries, liquorice, tobacco and cocoa. In the mouth it is dry, full. Decidedly full-bodied and persistent, it is an austere yet velvety red. The long ageing in large barrels makes this Barolo a world champion of longevity. Well stored, in a cool, damp cellar, it is not afraid to age for years. Even decades. The advice? You must have at least one box of this wine. In this way, you will be able to uncork a bottle every now and then, gradually appreciating the precious work of time on its delicate aromas. On the table, it accompanies important dishes. Excellent with meat and game in particular. Also perfect with medium, long-aged cheeses.

    Damilano is one of Barolo's historic wineries with ancient traditions. Over a hundred years old, even. In fact, the Damilano family's activity dates back to 1890, when Giuseppe Borgogno, great-grandfather of the current owners, began cultivating and vinifying the grapes he owned in the commune of Barolo. However, it was with the next generation, with Giacomo Damilano, the founder's son-in-law, that the winery took on its current name. Since 1997, his grandsons have been at the helm of the fine Langa winery. Guido, Mario and Paolo Damilano carry on the work of their ancestors with commitment, making the most of the Langhe's main grape variety, Nebbiolo, and the most suitable vineyards. But the secret of the high quality of Damilano wines is to be found in the vineyards, located in the elective areas for the production of Nebbiolo grapes, such as the Cannubi, Liste, Brunate and Cerequio Cru.
