Since April 2006, the Damilano Winery has decided to give a names to its "basic Barolo, in order to give it more perception, even if it is not a cru/single vineyard. The name is Lecinquevigne. The wine is produced from the municipalities of Barolo, Verduno, Grinzane Cavour, La Morra and Novello. You get intense tertiary notes of rose, leather, tobacco, and an emerging note of violet. Texturally it is ample with a prevailing impression of a softly persistent finish. Another excellent value Barolo from Bayway!
Exhibits beautiful ripe berry and hints of meat andmushroom. Full-bodied, with round, chewy tannins, but turns slightly hollow on the finish. Best after 2011. 9,500 cases made. –JS
Wine maker notes
Barolo Lecinquevigne is a blend of Nebbiolo from five vineyards located in the areas most adept for the cultivation of this varietal. The grapes used for this prestigious blend are grown in the calcareous-clay soils of Barolo, Verduno, Grinzane Cavour, La Morra and Novello.
The wine has a very distinct look, and it’s difficult to guess its age. The Nebbiolo vines range in age from 30 to 50 years old. The resulting wine has a ruby-red color with orange highlights and leaves behind an intense fragrance of rose, leather, tobacco, and subtle hints of violet and tar.
The taste is broad and encompassing, leaving a compelling sensation of softness in the mouth, with a long and persistent finish.
This Barolo can be enjoyed right away, but also has the capacity to age very well. This wine is best served at 61°F -63°F.
Barolo Lecinquevigne, while not conceived as a single vineyard cru, is still considered a very important wine in Damilano’s portfolio.
Damilano Wine Company is one of the oldest wineries in Barolo with historic traditions.
The Damilano family business dates back to 1890 when Giuseppe Borgogno, the great grandfather of the winery’s current owners, began to vinify his own estate wines. The town of Barolo resides in the generous and beautiful Langhe region, and its name was taken on by the “king of 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 maintaining 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, strengthening and developing the fruit which this extraordinary land has to offer. Always looking forward, they continually seek innovations to further refine Damilano’s production.
