      Dolcetto d’Alba DOC 2019

      Strong ruby red colour and fresh fruity fragrance. A clean, almost untouched wine, which is produced without the use of wood. The full, beautifully rounded taste with a slight bitter almond note in the finish is solely due to the special characteristics of the Dolcetto grape. SUPERIORE.DE

    • "Valmaggiore" Nebbiolo d'Alba DOC 2018

      “Valmaggiore” Nebbiolo d’Alba DOC 2018

      This Nebbiolo comes from one of the best sites in Roero and is vinified by Luciano Sandrone with the same care as a Barolo. Radiant ruby garnet. Wonderful scent of light red fruit, mainly raspberry and cherry. On the palate it is earthy with a beautiful strawberry touch and incredibly elegant. The fine-grained tannin is wonderfully integrated and together with a subtle minerality gives this Nebbiolo a breed and finesse that is second to none. SUPERIORE.DE

      "A delicious, juicy red with strawberries, light chocolate and bark. It’s medium-bodied with lovely fruit and a flavorful finish. Serious nebbiolo. It can age, too." James Suckling

      "Underbrush, blue flower, leather and dark-spice aromas are front and center on this fragrant red. Elegant and focused, the savory, chiseled palate features juicy red cherry, spiced cranberry and star anise alongside polished tannins and bright acidity." Wine Enthusiast

      "The Luciano Sandrone 2018 Nebbiolo d'Alba Valmaggiore shows a very fruity, fresh and accessible side of the Nebbiolo grape. This wine is open-knit and inviting with a steady succession of aromas that range from red cherry and plum to rosemary sprig and crushed mineral. On some level, you could call it Barolo Lite, although that does not do justice to the Valmaggiore vineyard in Roero that outperforms year after year. The wine is Barolo-adjacent for sure, but it offers its own bright and distinct personality. It's an exciting, new generation of Nebbiolo." Robert Parker

    • Barolo "Le Vigne" DOCG 2014

      Barolo “Le Vigne” DOCG 2014

      The bouquet opens wide with aromas of fresh red fruits and a delicate spicy note. On the palate very intense, remarkably elegant, fine-grained tannins, extremely clear, structured and long. Magnificent! SUPERIORE.DE

      "Brilliant, intense ruby garnet. Complex and dense nose, with truffle, some liquorice, then a lot of plum and blackberry. Juicy at the base, well worked out fruit, dense tannin, but dries a little in the back, can tolerate further storage." Falstaff

      "Fragrant, exuding floral, cherry, raspberry and spice notes, with fruit and spice flavors to match. Elements of tar and underbrush sneak in as the muscular structure asserts itself on the long finish. Elegant overall." Wine Specator

      "Luciano Sandrone and his daughter Barbara tell me that the 2014 harvest needs explaining. Many are quick to dismiss it given the difficulties of the growing season that saw abundant rain, hail and bombe d'acqua, or "water bombs," which are a dangerous phenomenon with intense rainfall in a very small radius. But hard work does pay off. The Sandrone family employed 38 people for farming, when the average harvest requires only 22 pairs of vineyard hands. Great care was required to keep the leaves and the clusters healthy. The 2014 Barolo le Vigne is bright and fruit-forward. It is perhaps more accessible in the near term compared to past editions. It delivers dark fruit nuances over a mid-weight and compact mouthfeel." Robert Parker

      "Red berry, dried rose petal, exotic spice, menthol and a whiff of underbrush take shape in the glass. On the youthfully tense but focused palate, taut refined tannins and vibrant acidity frame raspberry, strawberry, star anise and a hint of espresso. It's already delicious but this shows wonderful aging potential, so hold for even more complexity." Wine Enthusiast

      "Beautiful aromas of licorice, tar and black cherries following through to a full body. A powerful palate with dense fruit. Chewy and intense. Needs two or three years to soften. A triumph for the vintage." James Suckling

      "The 2014 Barolo Le Vigne once again shows the wisdom of blending fruit from different sites. If there is a vintage where blending has the potential to be the difference-maker, 2014 is it. So it is hardly surprising to find the 2014 Le Vigne in such great shape. The red cherry jam, mint, cedar and floral notes are all finely sketched. Medium in body and classy, the 2014 is beautifully textured and inviting from start to finish. All the elements are simply in the right place. Vineyard sources are Merli, Vignane, Villero and Baudana." Antonio Galloni

    • Barolo "Le Vigne" DOCG 2012

      Barolo “Le Vigne” DOCG 2012

      Le Vigne is a splendid Barolo of Sandrone. The bouquet opens wide with aromas of fresh red fruits and a delicate spicy note. On the palate very intense, remarkably elegant, fine-grained tannins, extremely clear, structured and long. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Sparkling, intense ruby with a garnet edge. Clear and intense nose, after ripe cherries, fine blackberry, some orange compote. Velvety and round in the base and course, builds up in many layers, much fine-meshed tannin, very polished, long reverberation, a great pleasure! Falstaff

      "Delicate, mature color, little orange rim. Delicate and delicate also in the fragrance, with seductive sweetness and fine wood nuances as well as graphite; deep herb spice with fine, ripe fruit. Very broad in the mouth, multi-layered and balanced, very melty in the base, with noble tannins. On the other hand, it is Burgundian and delicate, with a fine-grained tannin structure, long and red berry clear in the aftertaste." Weinwisser

      "Purity of fruit and balance here is very impressive. Firm and very silky tannins with a long, long finish that gives the wine amazing depth and intensity. Love the spicy and dense fruit character at the end of the palate." James Suckling

      "A hint of oak lends this a spicy component, along with cherry, licorice and tar flavors. Racy and bright, with fine intensity and a long, tightly wound finish that seems to go on forever. Shows beautiful purity and class." Wine Spectator

      "The Luciano Sandrone 2012 Barolo le Vigne shows the trademark ripeness that I so often identify in this historic product. The bouquet is round and plush with thick layers of dark cherry marmalade, blackberry preserves and dark currant. Beyond those apparent fruit aromas, Le Vigne offers dark spice and licorice with a beautiful menthol signature on the finish. The wine's natural structure is padded by soft tannins and lush fruit consistency." Robert Parker

    • Barolo "Aleste" DOCG 2014

      Barolo “Aleste” DOCG 2014

      "This is our flagship wine, a Barolo recognized the world over, which we have always nourished and cared for with greatest respect. Nothing wants change. This is why I will dedicate this special wine to my grandchildren Alessia and Stefano. From now on, it will carry their names." Luciano Sandrone on his intention to rename his world-famous Barolo Cannubi Boschis "Aleste" in 2013.

      This Barolo is in every respect a masterpiece of Luciano Sandrone. Not only historical product but also only Cru of the house from the famous area Cannubi in Barolo. Rich ruby, balsamic bouquet, ripe and sweet. On the palate with great smoothness, much fruit, denser tannins, very persistent finale with Burgundian elegance. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Sparkling ruby with a garnet shimmer. Fine and fragrant nose with notes of ripe, dark cherries and plums, in the background cloves and cinnamon. Fine-meshed, polished tannin on the palate, spreading very clear and straight, juicy, long aftertaste, with hints of cranberries." Falstaff

      "Aleste used to be known as Cannubi Boschis, its vineyard of origin, but has been renamed in honour of Luciano Sandrone's grandchildren Alessia and Stefano. The nose is a model of refinement and purity, with ripe and intense red fruits. Although medium-bodied, it's threaded with fine tannins and good acidity. This spicy, lively and long tonneaux-aged wine is no blockbuster, but should age well." Decanter

      "A firm and silky red with plum and berry character. Hints of spices and dark chocolate, too. Medium to full body. Powerful and structured. Needs three or four years to soften." James Suckling

      "This is the second year Aleste is produced instead of Cannubi Boschis, however the grapes are exactly the same. The 2014 Barolo Aleste is named after Luciano Sandrone's grandchildren Alessia and Stefano. The 2014 is still wound up and will require extra time to find its footing. The Sandrone family lost 25% of their fruit production in this challenging harvest. The wine offers fragrant notes of wild cherry and cassis with smoke, crushed stone and candied orange peel. The tannins are firm and textured. It is the palate (more than the nose) that requires more time to soften." Robert Parker

      "The 2014 Barolo Aleste is a wine of exquisite finesse and grace. Soft, understated and classy, it is a terrific example of the vintage at its best. Bright red cherry and red plum fruit give the wine its vibrant feel. In 2014, the Aleste is decidedly medium-bodied and restrained, especially compared to recent past vintages. Readers should keep in mind that Aleste is the new name for the Cannubi Boschis Barolo." Antonio Galloni

      "The cherry and strawberry aromas are tinged by hay and tobacco notes. On the palate, the core of fruit is joined by a chorus of herb, tobacco and underbrush flavors. Aggressively tannic now, but well-proportioned and long." Wine Specator

      "Dried rose, blue flower, aromatic herb, wild berry and a whiff of pipe tobacco are just some of the aromas you'll find on this stunning red. It's elegant and structured, delivering raspberry compote, crushed strawberry, cinnamon and star anise framed in bright acidity and firm fine-grained tannins. It has fantastic tension and energy, and promises to age well for years." Wine Enthusiast

    • "Valmaggiore Sibi et Paucis" Nebbiolo d'Alba Riserva DOC 2015 <br>MAGNUM in OWC

      “Valmaggiore Sibi et Paucis” Nebbiolo d’Alba Riserva DOC 2015 · MAGNUM in OWC

      For some years now, Luciano has been holding back a small quantity of his Nebbiolo Valmaggiore and letting it mature further in the bottle in his cellar. The result is called "Sibi et Paucis", which impressively underpins the cult status of his "little Barolo".

      Valmaggiore (Riserva) 2015 shows a full and robust bouquet of dried blackberries and plums. The colour of the wine is slightly lighter with beautiful ruby reflections, the warm vintage brings a lot of substance, a multi-dimensional fruit, liquorice and white smoke into the glass. The final then has a very finely woven tannin and an almost supple texture that clearly confirms what the Nebbiolo grape is capable of after a few years of bottle ageing. SUPERIORE.DE

      "This late-release wine takes us back in time to a beautifully sunny and warm vintage. The Luciano Sandrone 2015 Nebbiolo d'Alba Valmaggiore Sibi et Pauci hit all the right marks and is drinking beautifully at this point in time. The wine reveals an ideal mix of primary and tertiary aromas, with dried cherry and plum backed by crushed flowers, licorice and smoke. Enjoy it with a typical Piedmont tajarin and shaved truffles."

      Barolo “Le Vigne” DOCG 2017

      The grapes for the deep Le Vigne come from Baudana in Serralunga d'Alba (for power), Villero in Castiglione Falletto (for precision), Vignane in Barolo (for purity of aromas) and Merli in Novello (for richness of fruit). It opens wide with aromas of fresh red fruits and a delicate spicy note. Very intense on the palate, remarkably elegant, fine-grained tannins, exceedingly clear, structured and long. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Just mid ruby. Gorgeous ripe red-fruit nose with a peppery edge and minerally hints of iron. Just a hint of savoury oak, but very much in the background. Lots of juice on the palate and with bags of powdery but perfectly ripe tannins. Very long sour-cherry and cranberry finish with real depth." Jancis Robinson

      "The 2017 Barolo Le Vigne is rich, pliant and so expressive. Even so, I imagine it will need a few years to open up fully. Bright red fruit, rose petal, blood orange and spice give the 2017 its distinctly red-toned profile. Elegant and translucent, the 2017 is very nicely balanced." Vinous

      "Opulent and very sexy with perfume, cedar, dried flowers and dried strawberries and just a hint of nutmeg. It's medium-to full-bodied with round and finely velvety tannins and a flavorful finish. So seductive." James Suckling

      "Fragrant and delicious, this gorgeous wine opens with inviting aromas of rose, sandalwood, camphor and perfumed berry alongside whiffs of truffle and French oak. The full-bodied palate combines elegance and structure, featuring ripe Morello cherry, crushed raspberry, licorice and a dollop of vanilla alongside firm, refined tannins. It's already tempting but hold for more complexity." Wine Enthusiast

      Barolo “Aleste” DOCG 2017

      "This is our flagship wine, a Barolo recognised the world over, which we have always nourished and cared for with greatest respect. Nothing will change. This is why I will dedicate this special wine to my grandchildren Alessia and Stefano. From now on, it will carry their names." Luciano Sandrone on his intention to rename his world-famous Barolo Cannubi Boschis "Aleste" with the 2013 vintage.

      This Barolo is a masterpiece by Luciano Sandrone in every respect. Not only a historic product but also the only cru of the house from the renowned Cannubi area in Barolo. Rich ruby, balsamic bouquet, ripe and sweet. On the palate with great suppleness, lots of fruit, dense tannins, very persistent final with Burgundian elegance. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Lustrous mid ruby. Still a little compact but already showing great depth of fruit with hints of fresh mint, iron and oatmeal. Gorgeous juicy, full, red fruit with a rich layer of powdery tannins. Still a little embryonic, but sensationally balanced for this challenging year." Jancis Robinson

      "The 2017 Barolo Aleste is a dark, ample wine. Dark cherry, plum, new leather, spice and licorice bring out darker tones of Nebbiolo. All the natural power of these parcels come through effortlessly. Best of all, the 2017 will drink well with minimal cellaring." Vinous

      "The purity and brightness of nebbiolo is so impressive here. Strawberries and blue fruit abound. Full-bodied, yet tight and very polished with a long, persistent finish. Very transparent and appealing." James Suckling

      "Aromas of menthol, pressed rose, wild berry and grilled herb are front and center in this stunning wine along with a whiff of forest floor. Combining structure and finesse, the savory, full-bodied palate delivers juicy Marasca cherry, blood orange and licorice before an espresso finish. Firm, refined tannins provide tight support."

      “Valmaggiore Sibi et Paucis” Nebbiolo d’Alba Riserva DOC 2014 · 3 Bottles in OWC

      For some years now, Luciano has been holding back a small quantity of his Nebbiolo Valmaggiore and letting it mature further in the bottle in his cellar. The result is called "Sibi et Paucis", which impressively underpins the cult status of his "little Barolo".

      Ruby red and with a phenomenal aroma - balsamic and earthy, alongside fine fruity. The disciplined taste with the wonderfully balanced, velvety tannins goes into a long finish and is accompanied by fine fruit and mint aromas. Wonderful elegance with even further ageing potential. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Lustrous mid ruby. Red fruit with a touch of hot iron and not without concentration. Succulent and refreshing with gripping tannins. Plain delicious and a real feat considering the very cold and rainy vintage." Jancis Robinson

      For some years now, Luciano has been holding back a small quantity of his Nebbiolo Valmaggiore and letting it mature further in the bottle in his cellar. The result is called "Sibi et Paucis", which impressively underpins the cult status of his "little Barolo".

      Valmaggiore (Riserva) 2015 shows a full and robust bouquet of dried blackberries and plums. The colour of the wine is slightly lighter with beautiful ruby reflections, the warm vintage brings a lot of substance, a multi-dimensional fruit, liquorice and white smoke into the glass. The final then has a very finely woven tannin and an almost supple texture that clearly confirms what the Nebbiolo grape is capable of after a few years of bottle ageing. SUPERIORE.DE

      "This late-release wine takes us back in time to a beautifully sunny and warm vintage. The Luciano Sandrone 2015 Nebbiolo d'Alba Valmaggiore Sibi et Pauci hit all the right marks and is drinking beautifully at this point in time. The wine reveals an ideal mix of primary and tertiary aromas, with dried cherry and plum backed by crushed flowers, licorice and smoke. Enjoy it with a typical Piedmont tajarin and shaved truffles."

      Barolo “Le Vigne” DOCG 2012 · MAGNUM in OWC

      Le Vigne is a splendid Barolo of Sandrone. The bouquet opens wide with aromas of fresh red fruits and a delicate spicy note. On the palate very intense, remarkably elegant, fine-grained tannins, extremely clear, structured and long. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Sparkling, intense ruby with a garnet edge. Clear and intense nose, after ripe cherries, fine blackberry, some orange compote. Velvety and round in the base and course, builds up in many layers, much fine-meshed tannin, very polished, long reverberation, a great pleasure! Falstaff

      "Delicate, mature color, little orange rim. Delicate and delicate also in the fragrance, with seductive sweetness and fine wood nuances as well as graphite; deep herb spice with fine, ripe fruit. Very broad in the mouth, multi-layered and balanced, very melty in the base, with noble tannins. On the other hand, it is Burgundian and delicate, with a fine-grained tannin structure, long and red berry clear in the aftertaste." Weinwisser

      "Purity of fruit and balance here is very impressive. Firm and very silky tannins with a long, long finish that gives the wine amazing depth and intensity. Love the spicy and dense fruit character at the end of the palate." James Suckling

      "A hint of oak lends this a spicy component, along with cherry, licorice and tar flavors. Racy and bright, with fine intensity and a long, tightly wound finish that seems to go on forever. Shows beautiful purity and class." Wine Spectator

      "The Luciano Sandrone 2012 Barolo le Vigne shows the trademark ripeness that I so often identify in this historic product. The bouquet is round and plush with thick layers of dark cherry marmalade, blackberry preserves and dark currant. Beyond those apparent fruit aromas, Le Vigne offers dark spice and licorice with a beautiful menthol signature on the finish. The wine's natural structure is padded by soft tannins and lush fruit consistency." Robert Parker

      The bouquet opens wide with aromas of fresh red fruits and a delicate spicy note. On the palate very intense, remarkably elegant, fine-grained tannins, extremely clear, structured and long. Magnificent! SUPERIORE.DE

      "Brilliant, intense ruby garnet. Complex and dense nose, with truffle, some liquorice, then a lot of plum and blackberry. Juicy at the base, well worked out fruit, dense tannin, but dries a little in the back, can tolerate further storage." Falstaff

      "Fragrant, exuding floral, cherry, raspberry and spice notes, with fruit and spice flavors to match. Elements of tar and underbrush sneak in as the muscular structure asserts itself on the long finish. Elegant overall." Wine Specator

      "Luciano Sandrone and his daughter Barbara tell me that the 2014 harvest needs explaining. Many are quick to dismiss it given the difficulties of the growing season that saw abundant rain, hail and bombe d'acqua, or "water bombs," which are a dangerous phenomenon with intense rainfall in a very small radius. But hard work does pay off. The Sandrone family employed 38 people for farming, when the average harvest requires only 22 pairs of vineyard hands. Great care was required to keep the leaves and the clusters healthy. The 2014 Barolo le Vigne is bright and fruit-forward. It is perhaps more accessible in the near term compared to past editions. It delivers dark fruit nuances over a mid-weight and compact mouthfeel." Robert Parker

      "Red berry, dried rose petal, exotic spice, menthol and a whiff of underbrush take shape in the glass. On the youthfully tense but focused palate, taut refined tannins and vibrant acidity frame raspberry, strawberry, star anise and a hint of espresso. It's already delicious but this shows wonderful aging potential, so hold for even more complexity." Wine Enthusiast

      "Beautiful aromas of licorice, tar and black cherries following through to a full body. A powerful palate with dense fruit. Chewy and intense. Needs two or three years to soften. A triumph for the vintage." James Suckling

      "The 2014 Barolo Le Vigne once again shows the wisdom of blending fruit from different sites. If there is a vintage where blending has the potential to be the difference-maker, 2014 is it. So it is hardly surprising to find the 2014 Le Vigne in such great shape. The red cherry jam, mint, cedar and floral notes are all finely sketched. Medium in body and classy, the 2014 is beautifully textured and inviting from start to finish. All the elements are simply in the right place. Vineyard sources are Merli, Vignane, Villero and Baudana." Antonio Galloni

      "Tasted blind. Dark ruby with orange tinges. A little reductive, herbal and closed. Shy but concentrated on the palate, too. There is great balance between brooding perfumed fruit, tangy acidity and coating tannins indicating this has loads of potential, but is not ready yet." Jancis Robinson

      "Distinctive aromas of freshly mowed hay, blood orange and cherry mark this supple, elegant and vibrant Barolo. Tightens up on the finish, but chalk that up to youthful exuberance. Stretches out nicely on the finish." Wine Spectator

      "The 2015 Barolo Le Vigne is a wine of pure and extreme grace. Silky and nuanced on the palate, with tremendous character, the 2015 is all class. Rose petal, mint and sweet red berry fruit are laced together in this super-expressive Barolo. Medium in body, with radiant fruit and brisk tannins, the 2015 Le Vigne is a terrific example of the vintage at its best. Today, the 2015 is decidedly reticent. I have seen Le Vigne open up with time in bottle. I imagine that will be the case here as well, although the wine is quite closed down at this stage." Vinous

      "Luciano Sandrone expected this would be a beautiful year for Nebbiolo, with fruit showing the qualities of an important wine all throughout the growing season and right up to harvest. And yes, the 2015 Barolo le Vigne did turn out to be a great vintage, with a full aromatic array of perfumed rose, lavender and violet. For all of its generosity and expressiveness, with just a beautiful bouquet that sings out a seductive mezzo-soprano aria, be forewarned that in the mouth this is followed by rigidity and nervousness. That explosive bouquet might mislead you into thinking this is a rather evolved wine, but you certainly feel its youth on the palate." Robert Parker

      "Ripe black-skinned berry, pipe tobacco, ground clove and star anise lead the way on this full-bodied red. The smooth, tightly knit palate offers succulent black cherry, cranberry compote, coconut and espresso alongside firm, fine-grained tannins. A licorice note graces the finish." Wine Enthusiast

      "A tight and focused Le Vigne with strawberry, orange-peel and floral aromas and hints of hazelnuts. Not giving it all now. Full-bodied, very intense and focused. Extremely long and polished, tannic finish." James Suckling

Luciano Sandrone on his intention to rename his world-famous Barolo Cannubi Boschis "Aleste" in 2013.

      This Barolo is in every respect a masterpiece of Luciano Sandrone. Not only historical product but also only Cru of the house from the famous area Cannubi in Barolo. Rich ruby, balsamic bouquet, ripe and sweet. On the palate with great smoothness, much fruit, denser tannins, very persistent finale with Burgundian elegance. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Sparkling ruby with a garnet shimmer. Fine and fragrant nose with notes of ripe, dark cherries and plums, in the background cloves and cinnamon. Fine-meshed, polished tannin on the palate, spreading very clear and straight, juicy, long aftertaste, with hints of cranberries." Falstaff

      "Aleste used to be known as Cannubi Boschis, its vineyard of origin, but has been renamed in honour of Luciano Sandrone's grandchildren Alessia and Stefano. The nose is a model of refinement and purity, with ripe and intense red fruits. Although medium-bodied, it's threaded with fine tannins and good acidity. This spicy, lively and long tonneaux-aged wine is no blockbuster, but should age well." Decanter

      "A firm and silky red with plum and berry character. Hints of spices and dark chocolate, too. Medium to full body. Powerful and structured. Needs three or four years to soften." James Suckling

      "This is the second year Aleste is produced instead of Cannubi Boschis, however the grapes are exactly the same. The 2014 Barolo Aleste is named after Luciano Sandrone's grandchildren Alessia and Stefano. The 2014 is still wound up and will require extra time to find its footing. The Sandrone family lost 25% of their fruit production in this challenging harvest. The wine offers fragrant notes of wild cherry and cassis with smoke, crushed stone and candied orange peel. The tannins are firm and textured. It is the palate (more than the nose) that requires more time to soften." Robert Parker

      "The 2014 Barolo Aleste is a wine of exquisite finesse and grace. Soft, understated and classy, it is a terrific example of the vintage at its best. Bright red cherry and red plum fruit give the wine its vibrant feel. In 2014, the Aleste is decidedly medium-bodied and restrained, especially compared to recent past vintages. Readers should keep in mind that Aleste is the new name for the Cannubi Boschis Barolo." Antonio Galloni

      "The cherry and strawberry aromas are tinged by hay and tobacco notes. On the palate, the core of fruit is joined by a chorus of herb, tobacco and underbrush flavors. Aggressively tannic now, but well-proportioned and long." Wine Specator

      "Dried rose, blue flower, aromatic herb, wild berry and a whiff of pipe tobacco are just some of the aromas you'll find on this stunning red. It's elegant and structured, delivering raspberry compote, crushed strawberry, cinnamon and star anise framed in bright acidity and firm fine-grained tannins. It has fantastic tension and energy, and promises to age well for years." Wine Enthusiast

      "This is our flagship wine, a Barolo recognized the world over, which we have always nourished and cared for with greatest respect. Nothing will change. This is why I will dedicate this special wine to my grandchildren Alessia and Stefano. From now on, it will carry their names." Luciano Sandrone on his intention to rename his world-famous Barolo Cannubi Boschis "Aleste" with the 2013 vintage.

      This Barolo is in every respect a masterpiece of Luciano Sandrone. Not only historical product but also the only cru of the house from the famous Cannubi area in Barolo. Rich ruby, balsamic bouquet, ripe and sweet. On the palate with great smoothness, lots of fruit, denser tannins, very persistent final with Burgundy elegance. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Lightening Ruby Garnet. Very finely drawn, stimulating nose with notes of strawberry and raspberry, spicy forest honey in the background. On the palate it builds up nicely, in the front area present fruit, then unfolds with full-bodied, rich tannin. Falstaff

      "Tasted blind. Deep ruby. Concentrated and a little opulent with lots of ripe fruit on the nose. Lots of tangy fruit on the palate striking a near-perfect balance with the long, grainy tannins. Embryonic and arresting." Jancis Robinson

      "Aromas of dried flowers and sweet berries follow through to a full body, very firm and chewy tannins and a long, flavorful finish." James Suckling

      "Rose and juniper aromas lead off, settling this red into pure flavors of floral, cherry, strawberry, sun-warmed hay, licorice and mineral. Linear and firm, yet classy and elegant, this tightens up on the finish." Wine Spectator

      "There is more purple and black fruit in the 2015 Barolo Aleste compared to past vintages from Luciano Sandrone and also fewer of those floral accents that characterize the Cannubi Boschis where this fruit comes from. All the same, the bouquet comes off equally as intense and as generous as ever, if not more so. This wine also seems ready from an aromatic point of view, even if it needs some extra time to reverberate in the mouth. It is compact and firm, with good, meaty fruit, and it's refreshingly expansive in scope." Robert Parker

      "Sandrone's 2015 Barolo Aleste is a total stunner. Succulent dark cherry, plum, mocha, lavender and spice are all beautifully framed by ripe, silky tannins. Creamy, resonant and super-expressive, the 2015 Aleste hits all the right notes. Next to Le Vigne, Aleste is more typical of what readers might expect from a warm year. It is a gorgeous Barolo from the Sandrone family." Vinous

      "Woodland berry, iris, menthol and star anise aromas slowly take shape on this elegantly structured, savory red. Enveloping and delicious, the focused palate delivers raspberry compote, dried black cherry, licorice and cinnamon alongside polished, fine-grained tannins. Fresh acidity lends tension and keeps it balanced." Wine Enthusiast

    • Barolo "Le Vigne" DOCG 2017 <br>MAGNUM in OWC

      Barolo “Le Vigne” DOCG 2017 · MAGNUM in OWC

      The grapes for the deep Le Vigne come from Baudana in Serralunga d'Alba (for power), Villero in Castiglione Falletto (for precision), Vignane in Barolo (for purity of aromas) and Merli in Novello (for richness of fruit). It opens wide with aromas of fresh red fruits and a delicate spicy note. Very intense on the palate, remarkably elegant, fine-grained tannins, exceedingly clear, structured and long. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Just mid ruby. Gorgeous ripe red-fruit nose with a peppery edge and minerally hints of iron. Just a hint of savoury oak, but very much in the background. Lots of juice on the palate and with bags of powdery but perfectly ripe tannins. Very long sour-cherry and cranberry finish with real depth." Jancis Robinson

      "The 2017 Barolo Le Vigne is rich, pliant and so expressive. Even so, I imagine it will need a few years to open up fully. Bright red fruit, rose petal, blood orange and spice give the 2017 its distinctly red-toned profile. Elegant and translucent, the 2017 is very nicely balanced." Vinous

      "Opulent and very sexy with perfume, cedar, dried flowers and dried strawberries and just a hint of nutmeg. It's medium-to full-bodied with round and finely velvety tannins and a flavorful finish. So seductive." James Suckling

      "Fragrant and delicious, this gorgeous wine opens with inviting aromas of rose, sandalwood, camphor and perfumed berry alongside whiffs of truffle and French oak. The full-bodied palate combines elegance and structure, featuring ripe Morello cherry, crushed raspberry, licorice and a dollop of vanilla alongside firm, refined tannins. It's already tempting but hold for more complexity." Wine Enthusiast

      This Barolo is a masterpiece by Luciano Sandrone in every respect. Not only a historic product but also the only cru of the house from the renowned Cannubi area in Barolo. Rich ruby, balsamic bouquet, ripe and sweet. On the palate with great suppleness, lots of fruit, dense tannins, very persistent final with Burgundian elegance. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Lustrous mid ruby. Still a little compact but already showing great depth of fruit with hints of fresh mint, iron and oatmeal. Gorgeous juicy, full, red fruit with a rich layer of powdery tannins. Still a little embryonic, but sensationally balanced for this challenging year." Jancis Robinson

      "The 2017 Barolo Aleste is a dark, ample wine. Dark cherry, plum, new leather, spice and licorice bring out darker tones of Nebbiolo. All the natural power of these parcels come through effortlessly. Best of all, the 2017 will drink well with minimal cellaring." Vinous

      "The purity and brightness of nebbiolo is so impressive here. Strawberries and blue fruit abound. Full-bodied, yet tight and very polished with a long, persistent finish. Very transparent and appealing." James Suckling

      "Aromas of menthol, pressed rose, wild berry and grilled herb are front and center in this stunning wine along with a whiff of forest floor. Combining structure and finesse, the savory, full-bodied palate delivers juicy Marasca cherry, blood orange and licorice before an espresso finish. Firm, refined tannins provide tight support."

    • Barolo "Le Vigne Sibi et Paucis" Riserva DOCG 2011 <br>MAGNUM in OWC

      Barolo “Le Vigne Sibi et Paucis” Riserva DOCG 2011 · MAGNUM in OWC

      For a few years now, Luciano has been holding back a small quantity of his Barolo Le Vigne and allowing it to mature further in bottle in his cellar. The result is called "Sibi et Paucis", the impressive and rare opportunity to experience the magnificent ageing potential of his great Baroli.

      The 2011 Barolo Le Vigne (Riserva) is an opulent and well-formed wine with a fine cherry-like softness and roundness that you don't get in the Barolo Cannubi Boschis. Le Vigne delivers an unexpected additional touch of opulence that fits the historic profile of the Nebbiolo grape and, for all its directness, it has the inner grace and incipient balance for further positive development in the cellar. SUPERIORE.DE

      "From a hot and dry vintage that saw dusty winds blowing up through the Mediterranean and spreading particles of sand from Africa, this wine shows open-knit appeal with loose texture and lots of dark fruit intensity. The Luciano Sandrone 2011 Barolo Le Vigne Sibi et Paucis pours from the bottle with rich and velvety intensity, followed by dried cherry, blackberry, spice, leather and tar." Robert Parker

      "This shows real clarity and precision of fruit and fine tannins. The bark and mushroom character is fascinating, but the extended character of wet earth adds to the whole experience. It's so long and refined, yet muscular. Just starting to open now. Fantastic." James Suckling

The result is called "Sibi et Paucis", the impressive and rare opportunity to experience the magnificent ageing potential of his great Baroli.

      Barolo Cannubi Boschis (Riserva) 2011 from Luciano Sandrone is one of the protagonists of the vintage. Taut and firm, it shows the potential for enormous depth and dimension with dark fruits, spices, liquorice and white truffle. Tasting the other matured vintages of Sandrone, it is obvious that they perform exceptionally well in warm years like 2011. With the years of maturity, it has developed dazzlingly and will continue to present itself in full grace and power for at least another 10 years. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Dark red fruit with dried strawberries and sliced plums on the nose, as well as some dried fruit and cedar. Full-bodied and very chewy for a Cannubi. Tannic and powerful. Very old-style. Muscular." James Suckling

    About the winemakersLuciano SandronePiedmont
    Luciano Sandrone

    They are undisputedly among the best in the entire Barolo area: the wines of Luciano Sandrone. The winemaker, considered a dynamic innovator, learned the art of wine making as an oenologist at Marchesi di Barolo. In 1970 he bought his first vineyard. Seven years later Sandrone bought the first part of the Cannubi Hill and began to press grape juices from his own grapes. The winemaker could be described as a modernist among the traditionalists, as he opted for shorter maceration and ripening times, but also partly for new barrels.

    Luciano Sandrone - supported by his daughter Barbara and his brother and vineyard manager Luca - succeeds in giving the Barolo site wines a strength and character that go beyond purely oenological aspects. The style is very personal and highly recognizable. Power and elegance enter a harmonious symbiosis, the typical taste is recognizable very early. Nevertheless, the noble drops from Sandrone are very deep and long-lasting. The work in the vineyard is done biologically and organically. The family has not had the type of farming certified because they do not want to be suspected of only wanting to swim on the bio wave. All vineyard hills or parcels are first vinified individually and only later possibly blended.

    Built in 1998, the new company headquarters at the foot of the Cannubi hill is characterised by its practicality, environmental friendliness and meticulous attention to detail. Shortly before the turn of the millennium, Sandrone also began to stock older vintages with the three wines Nebbiolo d'Alba Valmaggiore, Barolo Le Vigne and Barolo Cannubi Boschis. These plants come under the name of "sibi et paucis" strictly limited in the sale. They bear a stamp which documents that the wines have been stored under optimal conditions for at least ten years. Both the Cannubi Boschis and the Le Vigne ripen two years after a ten-day service life in 500-litre tons. Barbera and Dolcetto are matured in the same way. SUPERIORE.DE

    "The winery of Luciano Sandrone ... is indisputably one of the world's best known and most respected brands of quality wine. Starting with the famous Barolo Cannubi Boschis in 1989 and 1990, the house's history of fame did not stand still."Gambero Rosso
