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.

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.

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.

A blend of fruit from the communes of Barolo, Novello and Grinzane Cavour, this has notes of orange peel and tarragon that brighten its flavors of black cherry and plum. Ripe tannins frame the fruit as notes of licorice linger on the finish.
