Food Pairings for Damilano Lecinquevigne Barolo
Needs to be decanted for about an hour, and maybe aged another year or two, but nice burnt sugar and leather. Pretty tannic.
Not Jeff's favorite. Dry, deep, earthy.

External Reviews for Damilano Lecinquevigne Barolo
(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. A 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 Always a great value, the 2009 Barolo Lecinquevigne shows ripe fruit and spicy oak tones at the back. It's 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. An...
The cherry, licorice and underbrush flavors are intense, but this reds balance tips in favor of the alcohol, with a slightly coarse finish. Drink now through 2020. 8,333 cases made. -BS ** SOLD OUT **

Fragrant, exhibiting sandalwood, cherry, strawberry and tobacco aromas and flavors. Taut, with latent energy and persistence, this needs time to develop. Ends with a beautiful fruit- and mineral-laced finish. Best from 2014 through 2025.
The 2007 Barolo Lecinquevigne is a delicious entry-level Barolo. Sweet red cherries spices and French oak are some of the notes that waft from the glass in this supple, silky offering. Sweet hints of tobacco, cedar, candied fruit and crushed flowers linger on the round, silky finish. There is plenty of underlying structure to suggest the wine will drink well for a number of years. This is far from an easygoing entry-level Barolo. Anticipated maturity: 2014–2022.
Bright citrus fruit, with plums and berries on the nose. Full bodied, with soft and silky tannins and a berry, roasted coffee and chocolate aftertaste. Subtle finish to this. Complex and balanced. Needs another two or three years.
