Lecinquevigne Barolo DOCG 2015

"Lecinquevigne" refers to the five vineyards where the Nebbiolo grape for Barolo is harvested.

The Damilano company is one of the oldest wineries in Barolo. The family business dates back to 1890 when Giuseppe Borgogno started cultivating and producing wine from the grapes from his own vineyards. Giuseppe  improved the general quality of the vinification system and of the wines, turning the winery into a “jewel” of the Langhe area. In 1997 Giuseppe passed the winery on to his grandchildren Paolo, Mario and Guido. Together, they are working to keep and improve the level of the quality of the Damilano wines.

About the Vineyard

Lecinquevigne is made from the assembly of grapes from five vineyards located in the most suitable areas for the production of Nebbiolo. Sourcing from multiple vineyards allows for the finest qualities of the calcareous-clay soil of Piedmontese municipalities such as Barolo, Grinzane Cavour, Monforte to be incorporated into the wine. The vineyards all sit at a south-east exposure. 

Tasting Notes

Ruby red in color with orange reflections. An intense bouquet, with tertiary notes of rose, leather, tobacco and emerging notes of violet and tar. The palate is ample and embracing, with prevailing impressions of a soft, persistent long finish.

Food Pairing

Lecinquevigne is perfect for braised meat , game, mushrooms and aged cheeses.
