"This is really creamy and delicious with chocolate, hazelnut, dried-berry and walnut character. Round and chewy with polished tannins, it turns ripe and beautiful. Such pure fruit. Try after 2023."

Wine Advocate 93
"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  ... read more

Wine Advocate 93
"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."

Wine Spectator 93
"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."
About 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.
