It's an evocative landscape of gently rolling hills covered by a quilt of vineyards and topped by medieval villages with winding cobblestone streets and views to the Alps.” ~ Wine Spectator.

Aging: Aged for at least three years in oak barrels.
Tasting Notes: 100% Nebbiolo. Barolo Lecinquevigne is characterized by a ruby red color with orange reflections and an intense bouquet of evolved notes of rose, leather, and tobacco, from which emerges a hint of violet and goudron. On the palate it is broad and enveloping; sensations of softness prevail in the mouth, with a long and persistent taste.
This is drinking well now, with cedar and meat character plus plum and dark-chocolate undertones. Full body, firm tannins. ~91 James Suckling
