"The entry-level 2011 Barolo Lecinquevigne is produced with fruit that is sourced from various points throughout the appellation. I highly enjoyed tasting this wine and I enthusiastically recommend it as a result, especially thanks to its affordable price tag. Some 60,000 bottles were produced. Barolo Lecinquevigne opens to bright cherry and blackberry aromas that are followed by delicate tones of spice, tar and licorice. The finish is long and smooth.

I thought that many of Damilano's top wines performed better in the challenging 2011 vintage than they did in the classic 2010 vintage. I found this to be especially true for both the Barolo Cannubi and the Brunate. Those sites seemed thinner and less expansive in 2010. But in 2011, the wines express themselves with extra intensity, beauty and richness. I am impressed with the work executed by Damilano in this vintage."~M.L.

"Aromas of ripe plum, dark berry, violet, baking spice, leather and tilled earth all come together in the glass. The juicy, structured palate doles out crushed black cherry, anise, ground pepper, tobacco and a hint of chopped herb. It boasts a great depth of flavors and fruit purity, while firm, velvety tannins give it an almost creamy mouthfeel. Drink 2018–2027."~K.O.

James Suckling 91
"A Barolo with a lovely core of ripe fruit, velvety tannins and a rich, fruity, spicy finish. Savory and delicious. Yet shows grip with tannin structure at the finish."~J.S.

Vinous Media 90
"Damilano's 2011 Barolo Lecinquevigne is a very pretty, entry-level Barolo. Succulent red cherries, sweet spices, tobacco, mint and leather are all pushed forward. Drink this open-knit, forward Barolo over the next handful of years."~A.G.
