Another wonderful one. Pale Brown Ruby in the glass, almost like a Tawny Port. Bright Cherry/Strawberry that gathers depth and becomes a deep jam taste. Dry Slate, Cocoa Mint taste, a bit of Cinnamon Leather, and a strange, but wonderful cocoa/citrus. Seems to me that this one is just beginning to age. Quite Something

Superbly earthy, paint thinner and dark fruits. Tannins that don't overpower but still make themselves known. Tongue depressors and sage.

(a blend of five vineyards): Moderately saturated medium red. Inviting aromas of strawberry, espresso, mocha, earth and mellow oak. Supple, lush and seamless, with spicy red berry flavors complicated by sexy truffley underbrush. Mellow and attractive Barolo with impressive sweetness of fruit and a fine dusting of tannins that will not get in the way of early enjoyment. - Stephen Tanzer 91 PointsA beautifully balanced and expressive Barolo, exhibiting cherry, leather, tobacco and orange pekoe notes allied to a sleek frame. This firm version lingers with tea and tobacco accents, showing a pleasant freshness. Best from 2016 through 2028. 8,333 cases made. BS - Wine Spectator Magazine 90 PointsAlways a great value, the 2009 Barolo Lecinquevigne shows ripe fruit and spicy oak tones at the back. Its an immediate wine suitable for near-term consumption. It boasts a medium build with enticing layers of dried berry fruit, spice, licorice and wet earth. The toasted oak notes are reasonably well controlled. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2020. - Robert Parker 90 Points
