Fully saturated ruby-red. Musky, ripe aromas of red cherry, blackberry and tobacco, with hints of truffle and tar. Enters the mouth full and dense, then turns juicy in the middle, with a suave touch to its rather ripe black plum, blackberry and tar flavors. Smoothly tannic on the long, impressive finish, with a lingering textural creaminess and persistent hints of camphor, sandalwood and mint. As good as this wine is, Irsquo;ve never been quite as impressed by it as some other experts: I find it a little too outsized and rich and lacking the laser-like purity of the greatest Barolo vintages. Still, as this is very much an infant, itrsquo;s likely to develop more nuance and refinement in bottle, at which point my score will look ungenerous. Donrsquo;t even think of opening a bottle for at least another eight years, and enjoy it for a couple decades after that.

Bright, deep ruby-red. Captivating aromas of raspberry, black cherry, gunflint, sweet spices, menthol and rose petal. Lush and concentrated, with sweet dark cherry and bitter chocolate flavors perked up by ripe raspberry, minerals and spices. A classic, elegantly styled wine that finishes long and brisk, with substantial but fine tannins and a lovely late kick of flowers and minerals. Impeccably balanced and very impressive wine with great depth to its pure nebbiolo fruit aromas and flavors. I liked Sandonersquo;s 2001s immensely right from the first barrel tastings, and all subsequent tastings have only confirmed my extremely positive views of them. For my money, if the Cannubi Boschis is the single-vineyard Barolo of 2001, the Le Vigne may well be the best example of a blended, non-riserva Barolo from this vintage. Interestingly, in 2001 the lots of Le Vigne spent 9 to 12 days on their skins, compared to 5 to 8 in 1996 and 7 to 10 in 2003, and I wonder if that extra contact contributed additional complexity and depth.

Sandronersquo;s 2006 Barolo Le Vigne possesses awesome balance as intricately woven layers of aromas and flavors come together in the glass. The 2006 is an especially powerful Le Vigne boasting a solid core of floral, red fruits supported by firm yet elegant tannins. This, too, shows the considerable drive and focus that is the hallmark of the vintage. The winersquo;s overall balance is impeccable. Le Vigne is made from parcels in Vignane (Barolo), Conterni and Ceretta (Monforte) and Merli (Novello). The wines are aged separately for a year in 500-liter barrels. The final blend is assembled, after which the wine spends an additional year in oak prior to being bottled. Anticipated maturity: 2016ndash;2026.

The 2007 Barolo Le Vigne presents a beguiling combination of explosive, ripe fruit and finessed silky tannins that make it a thrilling wine to taste, even at this stage in its development. Small red berries, minerals, crushed flowers, vanillin and sweet spices are woven together in a fabric of undescribable elegance. The French oak has never been better balanced, while the vibrant, crystalline finish leaves a lasting impression. The 2007 Le Vigne has all the potential to develop into a spectacular wine andmdash; actually, it already is. This is a totally stunning bottle of Barolo. Anticipated maturity: 2015andndash;2027.

Good deep, bright red. Darker fruits on the nose than the Cannubi Boschis, complicated by brown spices; less forthcoming and perfumed today. Then superripe, broad and deep in the mouth, with a brooding medicinal character to its flavors of dark fruits, brown spices and smoky underbrush. The energy from calcaire and the wineandrsquo;s huge tannins give this wine a chewy and very young impression, but thereandrsquo;s plenty of sweetness here. Sandrone will probably delay the release of this huge wine, which he says has andldquo;similar numbers to the Cannubi Boschis but a different sensation in the mouth.andrdquo;

Le Vigne Barolo offers beautiful clarity and purity in the form of black licorice, cherry cola, spice and black fruit. Therersquo;s a smoky or ashy note in the background and the wine feels balanced and integral on the tongue thanks to its tight tannins and gritty texture. Cellar for five plus years and drink with lamb cassoulet.

The 2004 Barolo Le Vigne is a phenomenal effort. Sweet, long and pure, it reveals an expansive core of perfumed ripe red fruit, flowers and spices. Despite its notable concentration it is made in a restrained style, showing remarkable elegance as well as harmony, with superb length and finessed tannins on the close. Le Vigne is made from the Ceretta, Vignane, Merli and Conterni vineyards. I have tasted the wines from these plots separately on many occasions. Curiously, I have never been particularly impressed by any of the wines on their own, yet when they are blended the results can be extraordinary, as is the case with the sublime 2004 Le Vigne. Anticipated maturity: 2008ndash;2019.
