External Reviews for Damilano Barolo Lecinquevigne
Exhibits beautiful ripe berry and hints of meat and mushroom. Full-bodied, with round, chewy tannins, but turns slightly hollow on the finish. Best after 2011.
The color is bright ruby red with garnet highlights; the nose is light, tender and delicate with hints of violet and red fruit. Dry on the palate with good body. It has texture and character. Velvety and harmonious.
A wonderful value in Barolo, this wine has a fragrant and complex nose of rose petals, cherries and mushrooms. Red berries, red licorice and cinnamon-like spice flavors coat the palate; the wine finishes with dusty tannins.
As the name suggests, Damilanorsquo;s entry-level 2004 Barolo Lecinquevigne is made from five vineyards in the villages of Barolo, Castiglione Falletto and Monforte, and is aged in a combination of Slavonian and French oak. Tar, smoke, earthiness and black cherries emerge as this Barolo flows from the glass, showing unusually refined tannins for this bottling. Anticipated maturity: 2009ndash;2018.
A pretty floral nose of fresh picked berries and rose water leads into a rich, deep, balanced red. A slight hint of mushroom and cedar complement the soft, succulent tannins and big, lush black fruit. This wine makes a fabulous gift and is sure to impress all that encounter it. Drink over the next few decades.
Extremely perfumed with blackberry, cedar and ripe strawberries on the nose. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a long, long finish. A beautifully balanced and crafted red. Best after 2010.
