REALLY REALLY GOOD AND WHAT A DEAL!!

"This rich red delivers ripe plum, cherry, licorice and leather aromas and flavors. The tannins are present and refined. Balanced and long overall. Best from 2021 through 2037. 5,500 cases made, 2,700 cases imported. -BS" (WS)

"The 2015 Barolo Lecinquevigne (with 60,000 bottles produced) shows ripe fruit with notes of raspberry and dark cherry. There is that moment of ripeness where the wine suddenly pulls itself together to offer more richness and velvety saturation at the back. This is a solid, easy-drinking expression with generous and round contours. This wine is ready to drink straight out of the gate, with a grilled steak.

The big news from the Damilano family is the introduction of a new wine, the Barolo Raviole, which I have reviewed here. This little-known vineyard is located in Grinzane Cavour, and I can't think of any other Barolos from this site." (WA)

"Rose petals, dried cedar, hazelnuts and tobacco. Very structured and powerful, but with enough generous fruit not to be hard nor intrusive. Full-bodied and long on the finish. Drink from 2021." (JS)

"New leather, tilled earth, mature black-skinned fruit and menthol aromas are front and center. The juicy palate offers ripe Marasca cherry, star anise and ground brown pepper, while polished tannins lend support. Drink 2022–2027. -Kerin O’Keefe" (WE)
