Firmly in the savory camp, this red delivers eucalyptus, juniper, sage and smoky flavors, along with cherry and berry notes. Dense and full of ripe fruit, this ends with freshness and length. Best from 2025 through 2038.

A blend of fruit from five MGA sites (Brunate, Liste, Cerequio, Cannubi and Raviole), the 2018 Barolo Lecinquevigne shows that pretty, bright character that we see across this entire portfolio from Damilano. This wine is accessible and up front in its delivery of wild cherry, rose and lilac. This expression from the five vineyards definitely sets itself up for a near-term drinking window lasting a decade or so.

There’s a bright, cedary-spice note pervading the nose and palate of this medium-bodied Barolo, with tight, fine tannins and a focused finish. This needs some time to open up and allow more fruit to rise to the surface.
