    Winemaker's 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.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Made with fruit assembled from five specific vineyard sites across the Barolo wine region, this beautiful blend of Nebbiolo grapes offers a clear window onto the noble Italian variety. Aromas include small berry fruit, spice, white peppercorn and cola. There's a tight firmness that propels a long finish.

    This perfumed red evokes flowers and spice, with elegance. The wild cherry, licorice, tobacco and mineral notes lead to a lean, tightly wound finish. Best from 2013 through 2020.
