Wine Advocate 92 points - The 2006 Barolo Brunate shows the masculine personality of this site in its dark fruit, minerals, menthol and spices. Today the wine is very much closed in on itself, but the fruit and perfume should emerge as the tannins soften. This is a commendable effort that falls short of being truly inspiring, a shame considering how precious Brunate is. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2026.  (Dec 2010)

Wine maker notes
Barolo Brunate is a wine of great character, which shows its best qualities when paired with roasts, braised beef, game and mushroom or truffle dishes. Characterized by a garnet red color with subtle orange highlights, this wine has a tannic strength which is balanced by its acidity, resulting in an attractive, harmonious presence. The Nebbiolo vines in the small town of Brunate are over 30 years old and enjoy a south-southeast exposure. The soil is calcareous clay with a good percentage of sand. A 100% Nebbiolo wine, it has an intense fragrance of violet with hints of balsamic and small, red fruits. This wine has an astonishingly intense flavor that is elegant and persistent, expressing notes of red fruit, tobacco and liquorice. A great ageing wine, it improves with time, taking on notes of truffle and cinnamon as it ages. This wine is best served at 61°F-63°F.

Producer
Damilano Wine Company is one of the oldest wineries in Barolo with historic traditions. The Damilano family business dates back to 1890 when Giuseppe Borgogno, the great grandfather of the winery’s current owners, began to vinify his own estate wines. The town of Barolo resides in the generous and beautiful Langhe region, and its name was taken on by the “king of wines”. It is with great passion that Giacomo Damilano, the founder’s son-in-law, developed with his children a love for the vineyards, selecting and maintaining them with great care in order to improve the quality of the wines. Over time, the winery’s production was transformed into a jewel that was passed down with pride in 1997 to Giacomo’s grandchildren, who continue to manage the winery today. Paolo, Mario and Guido Damilano, the fourth generation, have brought new vigor to the family business, strengthening and developing the fruit which this extraordinary land has to offer. Always looking forward, they continually seek innovations to further refine Damilano’s production.
