Luciano Sandrone Nebbiolo Barolo Cannubi Boschis 2001
"Loads of blackberry, cherry and dark licorice character. Full-bodied and<br/>velvety, with chewy tannins and a long finish. Pretty. Loads of depth and<br/>style. Gorgeous. Sandrone makes the best Cannubi. Almost as great as the 2000.<br/>Best after 2008. 840 cases made." 96/100 points. (James Suckling - Wine<br/>Spectator - Oct-2005)
Editorial Reviews for Luciano Sandrone Nebbiolo Barolo Cannubi Boschis
High toned and fragrant with aromas of rose petals, orange peel, and soft red fruits all framed with gently nutty wood and bright balsamic notes. This is finely textured, focused and tight in the mouth with lovely fruit, a touch astringent and dark but showing fine depth and the palate and slow to emerge savory complexity. This is already quite good but it promises to get better over the next ten years or so. 92pts
Four and a half glasses
Now, this one is close to perfection. from a single vineyard "Cannubi Bosichis" this Barolo treasures all the Piemonte's undergrowth aromas mixed with the darkest fruit. porcini, truffle. sage and flowers mingles with crushed dark plums, cherries and blueberries. as it sits in your glass notes of chocolate, toffee and currants emerge. this wine is incredibly complex and sincerely a shame to open before 2015. enjoy this sublime Nebbiolo over the next 40+ years.
