Damilano Barolo Lecin DOCG 2014
The Damilano family business dates back to 1890 when Giuseppe Borgogno, the great grandfather of the current owners, first began to make his own estate wines. The vineyards were then developed by his son-in-law, Giacomo Damilano. The estate comprises 53 hectares (131 acres) of vineyards, including plots in four of the Barolo Cru vineyards which make four single-vineyard wines: Cannubi, Brunate, Cerequio and Liste. In addition, Damilano produces Lecinquevigne, a Barolo from vineyards in five different towns around the region.
This nebbiolo comes from 30-50-year-old vines off five sites in the calcareous-clay hills of Piemonte's Grinzane Cavour, Monforte, and Novello.

Rating and reviews
90 points Wine Advocate
The 2014 Barolo Lecinquevigne is a nice, accessible wine for Barolo newbies. It has a lean appearance with flashes of black licorice and scorched earth, along with some interesting tar or asphalt notes.
90 points Wine Enthusiast
Fragrant blue-flower, rose and chopped mint aromas lead the nose along with a whiff of eucalyptus. The taut medium-bodied palate offers sour cherry, cranberry, dried sage and a white-pepper note alongside youthfully austere fine-grained tannins and firm acidity. Drink 2021–2026.
