Tasting Notes

Roses and strawberries rise from the nose, with licorice and a very typical tarry mushroom note. The nose is delicate, precise and has good sweet fruit notes. In the palate, the focused red cherry and strawberry fruit shines through, with good freshness and a layered, inviting structure that shows the delicacy of Nebbiolo grown in the Roero. The difficult 2014 season gave us something surprising: an eminently drinkable and enjoyable wine from a vintage that many had written off even before the wines were in bottle. Drink 2017-2025. - Cantina

Sandrone is the Barolo producer whose wines most remind us of Burgundy. The suave, seamless texture, fine tannins and depth of flavour of these Barolos makes them some of the most sought-after wines of the region. With age, they are so polished, so pure, so seductive. Sandrone uses 500lt barrels (typically only 10% - 20% new), picks at very low yields and bottles his wines before they lose their freshness or purity. His wines are wonderfully intense and vibrant with ripe, fine tannins. They drink well young and age brilliantly. Like most of the greatest producers he takes the best of the old school and incorporates the best of the new. The wines are bright and beautifully sophisticated which we suppose is up to date, but many of the methods are essentially old school: organic viticulture (is that modern or traditional?), open-top fermentation tanks, elongated skin contact, natural yeast fermentation, no barriques and no additions, bottling without filtration, and so on. Of course what is most important is that irrespective of fashion or style, Luciano Sandrone crafts wines of profound integrity, purity and deep expression. These are wines made with passion and honesty. They provide great drinking pleasure both when young and with bottle age. As a fastidious and naturally talented vigneron, Sandrone's obligation to keep the unique signature of the terroirs alive is vividly captured in the wonderfully intense wines
