Luciano Sandrone Barolo Cannubi Boschis 2005
The Azienda Luciano Sandrone is dedicated to producing Nebbiolo of the Barolo and Roero zones to the highest qualitative levels possible. Every bottle of Sandrone wine is made with the same careful attention to artisanal tradition, supported by modern techniques and hand labor. The Sandrone vision is to produce wines that reflect the cultural history and winemaking traditions of the Barolo and Roero, while incorporating the finest and most appropriate modern technology to make balanced, ageworthy wines of purity, elegance and harmony.
Barolo Cannubi Boschis is the flagship wine and is the one that earned Luciano his early success, being one of the first Italian wines to earn 100 points from the noted critic Robert Parker. This single-vineyard wine is typically dense and concentrated, but shows incredible harmony and balance. The medium-weight structure shows delightful and seductive notes of berries and cherries, with floral and mineral aspects. In great vintages, properly cellared examples will drink well for 20+ years. The finish is sweet and broad, with moderate, ripe tannins and long length.
Plum, black cherry, menthol, spice and leather are some of the notes that emerge from Luciano Sandrone's 2005 Barolo Cannubi Boschis (Library Release). The 2005 has fleshed out nicely since it was first released, although the slightly firm tannins of a year in which the fruit was picked a little ahead of schedule remain. Today, the 2005 Cannubi Boschis is fresher and more alive than Le Vigne. All things considered, this is a stellar showing. Rating 95 Points, Antonio Galloni, vinousmedia.com, Sept 2014
