2003 Luciano Sandrone - Barolo Cannubi Boschis Nebbiolo - Italy - Piedmont - Barolo - Red

Italy - Piedmont - Barolo

Red Nebbiolo
Producer Notes

Long esteemed as a leading producer of the Piedmont, Luciano Sandrone is sometimes mislabeled a "modernizer" of the of the region. In truth, he is more of a relaxer of the mediums that make the wines here long-lived, but difficult to get around in their youth. The wines combine the lovely floral and leather/spice aromatics typical of Barolo with balanced red and dark fruit that is liberally dosed... More »

($155) Very deep ruby-red. Very pure but reticent aroma of dark cherry, roast coffee and licorice, with a suggestion of dried fruits. Broad, fat and superrich, but less showy today than Le Vigne. One senses the hot year here (this one has a pH of 3.68, compared to 3.55 for Le Vigne, according to Sandrone). But this huge, classically dry wine gained considerably in sweetness with aeration, finishing with major tannins that dust the teeth and gums.

Sandrone's 2003 Barolo Cannubi Boschis reveals smoke, tar, licorice and dark plums with superb balance and a vibrant, engaging personality. Made in a sweeter, richer style than Le Vigne, its notable depth and well-integrated tannins make it one of the vintage's successes. I have a slight preference for Le Vigne over Cannubi Boschis today but both wines are among the finest in this vintage.

Very tight and focused for the vintage, with subtle aromas and flavors of strawberry, mineral and cherry. Full-bodied, chewy and very fresh. 250 cases imported.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
