Barolo Lecinquevigne is the result of an assembly of 5 ("cinque") vineyards located in the areas most dedicated to the farming of Nebbiolo grapes for Barolo production. Barolo, Grinzane Cavour, and Monforte.
Its distinguishing features are a hue of ruby red with orange-tinted reflections, and an intense aroma of rose, leather, and tobacco in sequence, with hints of violet and tar emerging.
It's taste is ample and enveloping, with a feeling of softness and a long, persistent savor prevailing in the mouth.
Lovely pale gold and gentle, fine bubbles. Toasty, spicy and complex aromas showing wonderful development after more than three years on lees in our cellar. The palate supports these complex aromas with honey, almond, passtry and baked apple flavours. Very fine and elegant with great comination of intensity, delicacy and length.
