Barolo Sandrone Cannubi Boschis 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

Three Glasses, Gambero Rosso: The Barolo Cannubi Boschis has proved its worth again this year -- generous, stylish and layered before opening nicely tannic on the palate and expanding with style through to a long, complex finish. This great Barolo brings out the best in its vineyard of origin and wins an elegant Three Glasses. (2009)

Packing sweet cherry, plum and licorice flavors, this red picks up a salty, savory component midpalate. Fresh, bright and harmonious, with a slight chewiness in texture and a lingering mineral aftertaste. Best from 2013 through 2030.

The deep ruby/purple-colored 1998 Barolo Cannubi Boschis boasts a spectacular bouquet of mineral-infused black cherry liqueur, new saddle leather, and pain grillé. This powerful, ripe 1998 offers full-bodied flavors, silky tannins, low acidity, gorgeous levels of glycerin, and a creamy mouthful of complex, layered, superbly pure Nebbiolo fruit. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2020.

Their single-vineyard Barolo, Cannubi Boschis, is clearly the better wine in 1998. It's harmonious and refined, yet powerful and rich, It has glorious aromas of roses, berries, and minerals and is full-bodied, with pinpointed, silky tannins and a long finish. This is wonderfully crafted and classy. Best after 2006.

I was blown away by the breathtaking purity and definition of Sandronersquo;s 2004 Barolo Cannubi Boschis. A translucent dark ruby, this weightless yet sumptuous Barolo bursts from the glass with layers of dark ripe fruit that coat the palate with stunning grace and elegance. As it sits in the glass notes of licorice, tar and sweet toasted oak gradually emerge to complete this magnificent wine. I tasted this along with the 2001, which has shut down considerably since I last tasted it earlier this year. Today the 2004 is the more elegant wine although the 2001 looks to be more powerful and perhaps longer-lived. My rating of the 2001 (95) appears to have been conservative by about 2 points. One of the highlights of the vintage, Sandronersquo;s 2004 Barolo Cannubi Boschis is not to be missed. Anticipated maturity: 2012ndash;2024.

Aromas of rose petal and ripe fruit with plum undertones. Full-bodied with wonderful focused ripe fruit and a silky refined finish. The texture is polished and refined. This is classy. Best after 2012. -JS Wine Spectator.
