Rated 95 by James Suckling
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. ... More details

Rated 94 by Wine Advocate
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,

Rated 92 by Wine Spectator
Cherry, plum and menthol flavors converge in this suave red, while tar, tobacco and wild herb notes add depth as this cruises to a lingering finish. Fine balance and length overall. Best from 2024 through 2042. 1,200 cases made, 100 cases imported.
Winery
Color: Garnet ruby red with fleeting orange reflections. Bouquet: Moderately intense, blackberries, liquorice, tobacco and cocoa. Taste: Dry, full, with great body and persistence, austere and velvety.

Varietal: Nebbiolo

Nebbiolo grapes have been grown for centuries in the hilly region of northern Italy, and have more recently started to appear in many New World countries, too, where modern vintners have expressed great enthusiasm for their fine characteristics. Their fame and popularity is widely known, and the Nebbiolo varietal is recognized as the grape responsible for producing the legendary fine wines of Italy. Indeed, this grape is packed full of intense and interesting flavors, ranging from truffle and prune, to tobacco and violets, making the wines they produce a sensory delight which simply get better the longer they are aged. The grapes also lend a beautifully pale red color to their wines, which helped secure their place as some of the finest and most elegant to be found anywhere on earth.

Region: Piedmont

Situated in the north-western part of Italy, the region of Piedmont is known worldwide and is highly respected for the quality of the wines produced there. Many of the most successful sub-regions in Piedmont produce many of the world's finest red wines, such as those made from the excellent Nebbiolo grape varietal in areas such as Barolo and Barbaresco. However, the historic wineries which typify this region use a relatively wide variety of grapes, including Dolcetto and Barbera for their red wines, which are typically aged and have a delightful velvety character. Piedmont isn't all about beautifully complex red wines, though, as it is also famed for high quality, elegant sparkling wines, notably the Asti wines made with the white Moscato grape. The region benefits from a range of terroirs which are often well expressed in the sparkling wines, and a wonderfully consistent climate ideal for vineyard cultivation.

Country: Italy

For several decades in the mid to late twentieth century, Italy's reputation for quality wines took a fairly serious blow. This was brought about partly due to lack of regulation in certain regions, and too much regulation in others. This led to several wineries in the beautiful and highly fertile region of Tuscany making the bold move to work outside of the law, which they saw as responsible for the drop in quality in Tuscan wines. They believed that they had the expertise and the generations of experience necessary with which to make truly excellent, world class wines, and set about doing just that. These 'Super Tuscans', as they came to be known, quickly inspired the rest of Italy to improve their produce, and now, Italian wine producers in the twenty-first century are widely recognised to be amongst the best in the world. Regulation and law began to change, and wine drinkers across the globe woke up to the outstanding wines coming out of Italy, which are continuing to improve and impress to this day.
