Luciano Sandrone Barolo Cannubi Boschis 2010
"Tar, smoke, licorice, incense, blood orange and sweet spices are some of the many notes that emerge from the 2010 Barolo Cannubi Boschis. Today the 2010 is firing on all cylinders. The flavors are broad, rich and ample, with fabulous delineation, energy and class. A creamy, resonant finish laced with exotic floral and citrus notes only adds intrigue in this drop-dead gorgeous Barolo...97+" AG 01/14

Tar smoke licorice incense blood orange and sweet spices are some of the many notes that emerge from the 2010 Barolo Cannubi Boschis. Today the 2010 is firing on all cylinders. The flavors are broad rich and ample with fabulous delineation energy and class. A creamy resonant finish laced with exotic floral and citrus notes only adds intrigue in this drop-dead gorgeous Barolo. 97+ Antonio Galloni.
Good deep bright medium red. Highly complex very expressive scents of black raspberry violet smoke licorice and espresso plus an exhilarating whiff of blood orange. Then dense but bound-up on the palate showing a medicinal licorice quality and modest flesh today with the wine s powerful spine dominating. But the explosive back-end fruit and outstanding lift and rising length suggest that this brilliantly delineated wine will be a long-lived classic. 95+ Stephen Tanzers IWC.
A beautiful and refined wine with plum dried berry and flower character. Full body with fine tannins. Wonderful length. Super integrated. Long finish. Try in 2017. James Suckling.
The single-vineyard 2010 Barolo Cannubi Boschis speaks in confident tones at high volumes. First produced in 1985, Cannubi Boschis is among the first single vineyard cru expressions made in Barolo. Thirty-five-year-old vines enjoy south and southeast exposures at 250 meters above sea level. The long 2010 growing season has favored optimal tannin ripeness and fine complexity on the bouquet. This is one of the standout wines of this celebrated vintage. It is well worth putting this wine at the back of your cellar where it will be untouched for years. Drink: 2017–2030.
Initially reduced and showing more woodsy, balsamic notes than fruit, this offers firm, ripe tannins and a complex structure that supports the eucalyptus, sage, juniper and tobacco flavors. The cherry character is submerged for now, though this fans out on the lingering, refined finish. Best from 2018 through 2033.
Structured but extremely elegant, this opens with an intense fragrance of violet, rose, wild berry, leather, underbrush and balsamic notes. The delicious, focused palate delivers crushed black cherry layered with notes of exotic spices, licorice, sage and black pepper, perfectly balanced by assertive tannins and vibrant energy. It already boasts gripping depth, but this has serious aging potential. Drink 2020–2040.
