A wine born out of challenge and passion, with the confidence that the Langhe may always give voice to great interpretations, even in terms of white wines: a pure Chardonnay, with just a few thousand of bottles produced, and capable of living up to the prestige of great red wines of Langa.
For the Damilano family, concentrated for generations on the Nebbiolo, taking on the challenge of a white wine grape that has already had superb interpretations in the Piedmont region was an important and strongly coveted test.
The name chosen for the new white, G.D., is dedicated to Giacomo Damilano, the company founder, who had already perceived the right vocation and potential of the family vineyards back in the 1920s.
This Chardonnay offers intense perfumes of white peach, citrus fruit, and broom shrub, admirably blended with notes of roasted peanuts and peanut butter. It is soft, cozy, and has an exceptional freshness and salinity, as well as a long finish with slight spice notes.

Produced by Damilano since 2008, Barbera d’Asti represents a new viticultural challenge: growing the most important native varietal in Piedmont.
The production of Barbera d’Asti is the fruit of a recent rental agreement which grants Damilano vineyard management rights over a 11 hectare vineyard in Casorzo in the province of Asti, an area in which Barbera has been grown since the 1800s.
This 100% Barbera wine is produced from a Monferrato vineyard that is 20 to 30 years old. The soil contains white marl and tends to be calcareous.
This wine has a red color with intense purple tones and a fruit nose with light spice notes. It has a persistent flavor reminiscent of currants, violets, cherries and vanilla.

100% Nebbiolo grapes and the limestone/clay-rich soil in the townships of Langhe are the fundamental traits that give this wine its ruby red color with hints of maroon reflections, a delicate and unique fragrance with tips of violet and red fruit, and finally a balanced tannic taste and a velvety, harmonic body.
Barolo Riserva Cannubi “1752” was born with the 2008 harvest, when the Damilano family decided to relaunch the historic core of its Cannubi vineyards located in the highest and centermost part of the hill. It is a small plot of about 2 hectares of Nebbiolo vines, currently between 30 and 50 years of age.
Ever since the mentioned harvest, the “1752” has been considered a reserve wine.
The wine is produced in few samples presented in a classy “vintage” packaging to underline the culture, tradition, and wisdom of a location in the Langhe area envied by the whole world: Cannubi.

The original name of this vineyard was Brinate.
This Barolo in youth presents scents of violet and small red fruit, balsamic tastes, and pleasant spice notes of clove, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
When the wine ages, it takes on notes of tobacco, rose, liquorish, and – in the best vintages – even truffle. Its finesse and elegance are due to alkalinity and calcium content in the soil.
