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.

green grapes

Varietal: Nebbiolo

Nebbiolo is not necessarily a particularly easy grape to cultivate. Indeed, its very late ripening time often means that yield is very low, and they are also quite susceptible to various diseases and forms of rot. However, in their native Italy and in many other countries around the world, wineries persevere with this varietal due to the fact that few other grapes can produce wines as wonderful, complex and flavorful as those made with the Nebbiolo grape. These grapes offer a beautifully pale red juice, packed full of intense flavors such as truffle, violet and prune, making them a real treat for serious wine drinkers looking for a sensory experience not to be forgotten. They are also renowned for their affinity for aging, which allows their strong tannins to mellow and compliment their stunning flavor.
barrel

Region: Piedmont

The beautiful region of Piedmont in the north west of Italy is responsible for producing many of Europe's finest red wines. Famous appellations such as Barolo and Barbaresco are the envy of wine-makers all over the world, and attract plenty of tourism as a result of their traditional techniques and the stunning setting they lie in. The region has a similar summer climate to nearby French regions such as Bordeaux, but the rest of their year is considerably colder, and far drier as a result of the rain shadow cast by the Alps. The wineries which cover much of Piedmont have, over many generations, mastered how to make the most of the Nebbiolo, Dolcetto and Barbera grapes which thrive here, and nowadays are beginning to experimenting with many imported varietals to increase the region's range and meet international demand.

Country: Italy

It isn't difficult to understand why Italy is famed not just for the quality of its wines, but also for the vast variety and range of characteristics found in the wines there. The terrain of the country varies wildly, from the lush rolling green hills and valley of Tuscany, to the sun drenched rocky coasts of Sicily, the mountainous and alpine regions of the north, and the marshy lowlands of the east. Italy really does have a little bit of everything. Combine this huge range of landscapes with an almost perfect climate for grape cultivation, and you have a country seemingly designed for viticultural excellence. The results speak for themselves, and it is clear to see that wine has become an inseparable part of Italian culture as a result of its abundance and brilliance. Each village, city and region has a local wine perfectly matched with the cuisine of the area, and not an evening passes without the vast majority of Italian families raising a glass of locally sourced wine with pride and pleasure.
