Damilano Barolo Lecinquevigne DOCG 2016

Piedmont, Italy
93 pts. Wine Advocate:

“This is a blend of the five vineyard sites farmed by Damilano, and if you look at the single-vineyard wines in this portfolio, you see Brunate, Liste, Cerequio, Cannubi and Raviole. The 2016 Barolo Lecinquevigne offers a 360-degree view of Barolo with pretty primary fruit backed by elegant tannins and mid-weight fruit fiber. The wine is a happy sum of its various parts, and as expected, you can’t really make out the characteristics of any one unique growing site. That’s exactly the philosophy behind a blended wine like Lecinquevigne. The wine ages in large oak casks for 24 months. Some 60,000 bottles were made, and you get good value here.”

93 pts. Wine Spectator:

“There are plenty of savory notes – eucalyptus, juniper and thyme – reconciled by cherry and earth flavors in this red, which shows a midpalate sweetness before the pointed tannins emerge. The finish is long and satisfying.”

92 pts. Jeb Dunnuck:

“Lecinquevigne is produced from five vineyards in the communes of Barolo, Grinzane Cavour, and Monforte, and was aged for 24 months in large barrels of 20-100 hectoliters. The 2016 Barolo Lecinquevigne has classic aromas of tar, dried leather, cherry, and violets. Its structure is up-front, with tannic grip and driving acidity, fresh cranberry, orange rind, and clove.”

FROM THE WINERY

"Lecinquevigne" refers to the five vineyards where the Nebbiolo grape for Barolo is harvested. The Damilano company is one of the oldest wineries in Barolo. The family business dates back to 1890 when Giuseppe Borgogno started cultivating and producing wine from the grapes from his own vineyards. Giuseppe improved the general quality of the vinification system and of the wines, turning the winery into a “jewel” of the Langhe area. In 1997 Giuseppe passed the winery on to his grandchildren Paolo, Mario and Guido. Together, they are working to keep and improve the level of the quality of the Damilano wines.

Lecinquevigne is made from the assembly of grapes from five vineyards located in the most suitable areas for the production of Nebbiolo. Sourcing from multiple vineyards allows for the finest qualities of the calcareous-clay soil of Piedmontese municipalities such as Barolo, Grinzane Cavour, Monforte to be incorporated into the wine. The vineyards all sit at a south-east exposure.

T A S T I N G  N O T E S

Ruby red in color with orange reflections. An intense bouquet, with tertiary notes of rose, leather, tobacco and emerging notes of violet and tar. The palate is ample and embracing, with prevailing impressions of a soft, persistent long finish.

Lecinquevigne is perfect for braised meat, game, mushrooms and aged cheeses.
