Luciano Sandrone Barolo Le Vigne 2011
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 Le Vigne is often a dark and impenetrable wine in its youth, where the tannins and structure from the higher-altitude vineyard sites make the wine less approachable. With proper cellaring, this wine reveals more classic Barolo aspects of black cherries, tar, violets and roses. This wine can outlive the Cannubi Boschis bottling in great years: Le Vigne shows more tannins than its brother and possesses amazing freshness and length.
Rose petal, mint, crushed flowers, sweet red berries and cinnamon are some of the many notes that take shape in the glass. A wine of exquisite perfume and aromatic lift, the 2011 Le Vigne is all about finesse and pure texture. With time in the glass, the 2011 blossoms into a layered, head-turning wine. This is a great effort from Sandrone. In 2011, Le Vigne includes fruit from Villero for the first time. Few wines straddle the modern and traditional with this much pure finesse.
