Luciano Sandrone Nebbiolo Barolo Cannubi Boschis 1999

Winemaker's Notes:

95 points Antonio Galloni (Wine Advocate): The 1999 is easily one of the best wines in the series. It offers rich sensations of spices, flowers, toasted oak and minerals along with well-delineated layers of ripe dark fruit, menthol, and eucalyptus flavors, finishing with exceptional structure, length and freshness. I didn't taste the superb 1989 (see above) at age six, but when I tasted this 1999 on a later occasion, the first thing that came into my mind was a young version of that wine. The 1999 will require at least a few years of bottle age and will start to be at its best around 2009, after which it should last another decade. 95+ points/drink after 2009. (Apr 2007)
