Damilano is one of the oldest wineries in Barolo, dating back to 1890 when Giuseppe Borgogno started cultivating grapes and producing wine from his vineyards. Giacomo Damilano, the founder’s son-in-law, took over the winery operation in 1935. He grew the business and improved the quality of the vinification system and the vineyards, turning the winery into a “jewel” of the Langhe area. The results of his hard work were passed down to his grandchildren Paolo, Mario, and Guido in 1997; to this day they are work to maintain and improve quality in the vineyards. (importer notes)

The 2019 Damilano Barolo Lecinquevigne is made from grapes sourced from five vineyards in the Barolo zone, each with a distinct terroir. The resulting juice is so much greater than the sum of its parts. Check out the press!

97 points, World Wine Awards, *Best in Show*, Decanter:
"The second of our brace of 2019 Baroli is the darker of the pair, perhaps the result of having spent only 24 rather than 36 months in wood. It, too, is a wine of gentleness and refinement, with bright plum fruits and warm spice both apparent in the aromas, within the context of an aromatic profile both seamless and harmonious. It’s ample on the palate yet round-contoured, with acidity here as important an element of the wine’s structure as is tannin. The tannins, indeed, are unintimidating and supportive – but resonant and flavory, too, in the best Barolo style. The overall impression of an easy-rolling roundness is underscored by the wealth of fruit, which sings through the palate. For all that, this is a serious Barolo that could easily take five to ten years of further aging. It is an ideal introduction to the pleasures of the 2019 vintage in this emblematic Piedmontese region."  (2/2023)

93 points, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"With fruit from Brunate, Liste, Cerequio, Cannubi, and Raviole, the 2019 Barolo Lecinquevigne is a little subdued on the first nose and would benefit from more time in the bottle. This wine offers an appellation-wide taste of Nebbiolo, and the focus, consequently, is on the grape more than any single vineyard. These kinds of blends work very well in a vintage like 2019 that holds its own in terms of balance, intensity, and texture. With 70,000 bottles made, this is the most accessible and affordable Barolo in the Damilano portfolio." (8/24/23)

93 points, James Suckling:
"Very perfumed and pretty with ripe berry, terra-cotta, and rose petal aromas and flavors. Medium-bodied with fine tannins and a lovely creamy texture. Fresh and bright. Delicious now but will age nicely. Drink or hold." (7/28/23)

92 points, Wine Spectator:
"A taut, linear red, with macerated cherry and plum flavors augmented by hay, spices, and iron. This has ample fruit and savory notes waiting to shine through once the tannic structure mellows. Best from 2026 through 2045." (10/31/23)
