Luciano Sandrone

"Cannubi Boschis" Barolo is the historical product of Luciano Sandrone and has been his leading wine since 1985, when he purchased a few acres on the prestigious Cannubi hillside. It is also his only cru: the Nebbiolo grapes all come from the prestigious Cannubi subzone in Barolo, from vines with an average age of 30 years. Perched at an altitude of 250 meters (820 feet), the vineyards are perfectly exposed South and Southeast.

Wine Advocate

The 2006 Barolo Cannubi Boschis is seductive, round and sweet in its ripe dark fruit. The wine continues to gain weight in the glass, showing a level of density that nearly manages to cover the tannins. Floral notes add lift on the finish. This is a powerful, linear Cannubi Boschis with tons of energy and muscle, but it will require quite a bit of patience. Sandrone harvests his three parcels in Cannubi Boschis separately. Vinification takes place in stainless steel. The wines undergo malolactic fermentation and are aged in 500-liter barrels (roughly 20% new) for a year. Once the final blend is assembled, the wine goes back into oak for another year prior to being bottled in the spring. Sandrone is one of the earliest producers to bottle, which he does to preserve as much freshness as possible. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2031.

Score: 97. —Antonio Galloni, February 2010.

Wine Enthusiast

It's hard to beat the quality achieved by this spectacular wine. Luciano Sandrone's Barolo from the Cannubi Boschis cru is creamy, rich, opulent and sophisticated. It oozes flavors of espresso, ripe cherry, cassis, cola and licorice. In the mouth, it is extraordinarily bright and generous and the seamless finish can be counted in long minutes. And, the best news is: this wine will only improve with time.

Score: 96. —Monica Larner, December 01, 2010.

Wine Spectator

Packing sweet cherry, plum and licorice flavors, this red picks up a salty, savory component midpalate. Fresh, bright and harmonious, with a slight chewiness in texture and a lingering mineral aftertaste. Best from 2013 through 2030. 300 cases imported.

Score: 95. —Bruce Sanderson, April 30, 2011.
