James Suckling 93
Rose petals, dried cedar, hazelnuts and tobacco. Very structured and powerful, but with enough generous fruit not to be hard nor intrusive. Full-bodied and long on the finish.
Wine Advocate 92
The 2015 Barolo Lecinquevigne (with 60,000 bottles produced) shows ripe fruit with notes of raspberry and dark cherry. There is that moment of ripeness where the wine suddenly pulls itself together to offer more richness and velvety saturation at the back. This is a solid, easy-drinking expression with generous and round contours. This wine is ready to drink straight out of the gate, with a grilled steak.
DamilanoView all from Damilano
The Damilano family business dates back to 1890 when Giuseppe Borgogno began to vinify his own estate wines. It is with great passion that Giacomo Damilano, the founder's son-in-law, developed with his children a love for the vineyards, selecting and caring for them with great care in order to improve the quality of the wines. Over time, the winery's production was transformed into a jewel that was passed down with pride in 1997 to Giacomo's grandchildren, who continue to manage the winery today. Paolo, Mario and Guido Damilano, the fourth generation, have brought new vigor to the family business while upholding Damilano's historic production philosophy: high quality wines can only come from high quality grapes. With the assistance of agronomist Giampiero Romana and enologist Beppe Caviola, Damilano continues to hone and improve each vintage. Ambassadors of Barolo, the Damilano line culminates in several single vineyard crus that explore the vast and nuanced expression of Nebbiolo in this region.
