Always a great value, the 2009 Barolo Lecinquevigne shows ripe fruit and spicy oak tones at the back. Its an immediate wine suitable for near-term consumption. It boasts a medium build with enticing layers of dried berry fruit, spice, licorice and wet earth. The toasted oak notes are reasonably well controlled. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2020.

Wine maker notes
Barolo Lecinquevigne is a blend of Nebbiolo from five vineyards located in the areas most adept for the cultivation of this varietal. The grapes used for this prestigious blend are grown in the calcareous-clay soils of Barolo, Verduno, Grinzane Cavour, La Morra and Novello. The wine has a very distinct look, and it’s difficult to guess its age. The Nebbiolo vines range in age from 30 to 50 years old. The resulting wine has a ruby-red color with orange highlights and leaves behind an intense fragrance of rose, leather, tobacco, and subtle hints of violet and tar. The taste is broad and encompassing, leaving a compelling sensation of softness in the mouth, with a long and persistent finish. This Barolo can be enjoyed right away, but also has the capacity to age very well. This wine is best served at 61F -63F. Barolo Lecinquevigne, while not conceived as a single vineyard cru, is still considered a very important wine in Damilano’s portfolio.
