Damilano
Lecinquevigne Barolo DOCG
Piemonte

This Barolo is crafted from Nebbiolo and cultivated in five distinct townships.  All part of the Barolo DOCG zone, the vineyards are located in Castellero, located northeast of the village of Barolo with western exposure; Monvigliero, located in Verduno with southern exposure; Fossati, located in La Morra with east-southeast exposure; Ravera, located in Novello with southwestern exposure; and Cavourrina, located in Grinzane Cavour with west-southwest exposure.

The final wine is a unique expression of what the region has to offer.  It is ready to drink now, but has the capacity to age for at least 10 years.
