Barbera d’Alba Lablu is a premier 100% Barbera wine, which draws strength and nourishment from the calcareous-clay soils of Barolo and Serralunga. The vineyards are 30 to 50 years old, imparting a deep, ruby purple color to the wine. Its bouquet touts fruit notes of blackberry and cherry which are accented by hints of cinnamon, vanilla and green pepper. This wine has a full, robust flavor and pleasant freshness that will satisfy even the most demanding palates. An extraordinarily versatile wine, it pairs well with simple, rustic dishes.
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.
