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.
"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."
