Damilano 2014 Barbera d'Alba Lablù


Robert Parker 88 Points: "The 2014 Barbera d'Alba Lablù is an easy-drinking red with dusty mineral notes that transition to dark fruit, spice, leather and smoke. There is a note of sweetness on the finish and a touch of overripe fruit in the form of raisin or prune.

Damilano has been a Barolo protagonist for many years. Even if you are already familiar with its wines, this estate merits a longer look. I have been impressed by the work underway here and notice tangible tweaks to the winemaking style that represent a constant stream of improvements building over the past five years or so. For example, the Damilano 2012 Barolo Cannubi stands out among its peers. This is a difficult feat considering the competitive nature of this super-celebrated single vineyard. Among so many excellent producers that farm here, Damiliano's Cannubi holds its own, especially in the challenging 2012 vintage. More interesting, however, is the special anniversary magnum of Cannubi from the 2008 vintage and bottled today as a limited-production Riserva. Congratulations."
