Damilano Lecinquevigne Barolo 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

92 points James Suckling: A balanced and delicious Barolo that delivers so much subtle dried orange and berry character and dusty texture. Plenty of cedar too. It's medium-bodied with fine tannins and a fresh finish. Drink or hold. (9/15/14)

A blend of Nebbiolo from five different vineyards situated throughout the denomination, it opens with aromas of underbrush, porcini mushroom, black berries, tobacco and leather. The palate delvers ripe Morello cherry and red raspberry accented with baking spices alongside firm tannins. Drink after 2018.

Very firm and tightly wound, offering a peek at the cherry, wild berry, floral and tobacco flavors. Lean and dry, with mouthcoating tannins guarding the finish. Best from 2017 through 2028. 8,330 cases made.

As its name suggests, the 2010 Barolo Lecinquevigne sees fruit sourced from five vineyard sites spread over various townships. The wine shows a light garnet color and very tight aromas of wild berry and bitter almond that need more time to evolve. It ages for two years in botte grande. There’s a pleasant earthy quality that gives nice dryness to the finish. It feels compact and tight in the mouth thanks the the firm nature of the tannins. Drink: 2016–2025.
