"Very clean and bright aromas of crushed berries, chocolate and spices, yet this is subtle and pretty. Full body, firm and silky tannins and a long, long, polished and tannic finish. Drink or hold."~J.S.

Wine Advocate 92+
"This is a wine I highly recommend especially for those who can't resist the beautiful taste of Nebbiolo in a more informal dining scenario (like around the kitchen table with family and friends). The 2012 Barolo Lecinquevigne sees fruit sourced from five vineyard sites, and all that mixing and matching gives the winemakers more flexibility for achieving quality. For this reason, Lecinquevigne has shown impressive quality over the years. The wine is redolent of wild berry, cola, licorice and soft spice."~M.L.

Wine Spectator 92
"A firm, lean style, sporting cherry, licorice, mint, tobacco and tar flavors allied to dry, dusty tannins. Shows fine acidity and balance, with a long aftertaste of licorice, earth and tar. Best from 2019 through 2033. 8,333 cases made."~B.S.

Wine Enthusiast 91
"Woodland berry, forest floor, blue flower, tobacco and a hint of leather come together in the glass. The chewy, accessible palate offers juicy wild cherry, fleshy raspberry, cake spice and star anise accompanied by velvety tannins."~K.O.

Vinous Media 89
"The 2012 Barolo Lecinquevigne is a very pretty, gracious, lifted wine that will drink well upon release. Crushed flowers, sweet red berries and hints of tobacco lift from the glass, with sweet silky tannins that underpin the fruit nicely. I would prefer to drink this racy, open-knit Barolo over the next few years, while the flavors retain their youthful vibrancy."~A.G.
