International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 135

Full red. Reticent, dark aromas of black cherry and violet, with a minty nuance emerging with aeration. Dense and sweet but with lovely vinosity giving shape to the dark cherry flavor. Penetrating and very young. Finishes with big, serious but fine tannins. Sandrone told me a bit of Le Vigne fruit was picked after the early October rainy period, but insisted that these grapes actually had better technical numbers.

The 2005 Barolo Le Vigne opens with fresh, high-toned aromas that meld into a core of perfumed red fruits. There is notable vibrancy to the fruit, and although the 2005 is a relatively small-scaled vintage for this wine, the balance is exceptional. The Le Vigne has more than enough fruit to follow through all the way to the close, where notes of raspberry jam offer a final burst of intensity. Le Vigne is made from a number of parcels in Vignane (Barolo), Conterni and Ceretta (Monforte) and Merli (Novello). In 2005 the harvest took place in the first two weeks of October. The wines were vinified separately, then racked into 500-liter barrels. The final blend was assembled in the summer of 2006. Every year I taste through the various parcels separately and every year I am amazed by the way the final blend transcends the quality of the individual wines. Simply put, Le Vigne is a gem of a wine from Luciano Sandrone.

Sweet blackberry and cherry aromas, with hints of flowers. Full-bodied, with a solid core of blackberry fruit and a long finish. Tight and chewy. Layered and pretty. Racy and fruity.

Not even close to prime.
