Luciano Sandrone Nebbiolo Barolo Cannubi Boschis 1988

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

certainly less oak here, similar to the 1985 with more distinct limestone and tar, really crisp, clean, and well deliniated nose, wood offer a complimentary note and is in fine balance, faint bresaola note, really typical notes on the nose, hints of grapevine smokiness, warm strawberries, nice spice notes form a backdrop, leaner in the mouth but more of an etched quality to the fruit, such a core of deep and intense fruit, a hint of muskiness, very tense and crisp, lots of red cherry fruit, quite compact, sneaky finish is moderately long, will improve, it is a bit simple at this stage but has great purity, the fruit becomes more pronounced with time, very dark cherry, very powerful and youthful, very sweet palate impression, really perfectly ripe fruit 93pts

Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Layered Rice Pudding

RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.
