Cannubi Boschis Barolo. Luciano Sandrone 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

"Stunningly beautiful. It, too, is quite subtle and understated. The 2008 is a gorgeous, mid-weight wine laced with sweet red cherries, flowers, spices, mint and minerals. This is a decidedly feminine, gracious Cannubi Boschis that impresses for its elegance, class and finesse. Sweet floral notes add brightness on the Pinot-like, vibrant finish. The wine keeps getting better and better in the glass. This, too, is a dazzling effort. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2028...95" WA 4/12 "In the menthol mode, with additional flavors of cherry, tobacco and hints of tar, this red is bright and focused. The dusty tannins on the finish are complemented by sweet fruit. Offers fine, chewy length. Best from 2017 through 2035...93" WS 12/12

Tight and a bit oaky on the nose with a little black cherry framed with some rose notes. This is soft if texturally complete in the mouth silky without being opulent and showing fine cut cherry fruit on the palate, with a late arriving herb and limestone note, This is just a bit austere and dour today,with the wood tannins showing a bit on the finish, which shows a lovely blend of fresh fruit and soil tones. This is tense and elegant, showing classic Cannubi austerity, but the wood is a touch intrusive. 89pts

Lots of sweet, toasty oak spice on the nose is accompanied a touch of chalk and some savory, meaty, almost jerky tones. On entry a slight edge of sweetness is quickly washed away by bright and tart cherry and strawberry fruit. This is rather elegant, and fairly surprisingly transparent with good length still driving the light sweet edge here, tight with a traditional mouth feel that is less dark, matte and oaky than previous vintages. Finishes with excellent length rich with sour and astringent red fruits. Is this just a vintage anomaly? 91pts

This nose is divine. Aromas of perfumes, roses and ripe fruit. Full body, with fine tannins and a dark chocolate finish. Tight and very, very pretty. Needs to loosen up a bit with about three to four years of bottle age. Better in 2014. James Suckling. A Nebbiolo wine from Piedmont in Italy. 2008 Luciano Sandrone Barolo Cannubi Boschis 750ml

Good bright ruby-red. Deeper but less forthcoming on the nose than Le Vigne, hinting at black cherry, menthol and flowers. Then broader and deeper on the palate, conveying a more classically dry impression than the wonderfully sweet, round 2007. As creamy as this is, it’s dominated today by its impression of energy and medicinal black cherry reserve. Most impressive right now on the tightly coiled, rising, electric finish, which unfurls spectacularly as the wine sits in the glass. A great expression of Cannubi terroir.

Boschis is the northern corner of the Cannubi hill, a vineyard facing south and southeast toward the morning sun. It produced a precise 2008, a reticent wine with fresh, brisk tannins and vibrant, cherry-red fruit. Grown in marine sediments of clay and limestone, this grows increasingly distinctive as it takes on air. The style is clean enough to enjoy it as a young wine, but the potential won’t be reached for ten years or more.
