    Barolo "Aleste" DOCG 2015 <br>MAGNUM in OWC

    "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
