Very pretty 2014 with orange-peel, leather, spice and plum character. Medium body, firm tannins and a juicy finish. Drink or hold.

Damilano has always been an excellent and reliable producer. The 2014 Lecinquevigne Barolo is an excellent example of this. This wine is a tasteful, soft, and ready-to-drink. Pair its aromas and flavors of ripe fruit with a savory lamb stew.
90pts Wine Spectator
Walks the line between dusty cherry fruit and leather and tobacco flavors, buoyed by vibrant acidity and light tannins that leave a dusting of cocoa and spice on the finish. Elegant, yet intense. Best from 2023 through 2042.
90pts 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.
90pts Robert Parker's 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.
Ruby red in color, this wine offers aromas of rose, leather, tobacco and emerging notes of violet. The palate is soft, with a persistent finish.
Perfect with red and braised meat, game, and aged cheese.
