Damilano Barolo Lecinquevigne Riserva 2006

€58.00

AROMA:

Intense fragrance of rose, leather, tobacco, and subtle hints of violet and tar.

COLOUR:

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.

TASTE:

The taste is broad and encompassing, leaving a compelling sensation of softness in the mouth, with a long and persistent finish.

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, Grinzane Cavour, Monforte and Novello.

FOOD COMBINATION:

Game, red meat, meat braised in the same wine and mature cheese.
