Editorial Reviews for Luciano Sandrone Nebbiolo Barolo Cannubi Boschis
Very shallow, vaguely woodsy, a bit blueberry/blackberry, a touch raw woody. Good acids but still rather flat in the mouth. Dark fruit, anonymous fruit, rich and rather velvety, broad but low, a touch of coffee, coffee crema, short finish. (80-82pts)
External Reviews for Luciano Sandrone Nebbiolo Barolo Cannubi Boschis
Good deep red. Knockout, wonderfully expressive nose combines with a strong brown spice component currently dominating the mouth. But this is utterly spherical and seamless from day one. The extremely long finish dusts the palate with fine tannins. A rather elegant and silky wine that nonetheless displays the power of this vintage.
Good deep ruby-red. Compellingly sexy aromas of raspberry, coffee and mocha. Lush and silky on entry, then wonderfully bright and delineated in the middle palate, with very fresh red and black fruit flavors of outstanding richness. Mounts impressively on the back end, finishing classically dry and with a real whiplash of juicy fruit flavors. A wine like this would make a terrific late release; by then, it may well merit an even higher score.
Packing sweet cherry, plum and licorice flavors, this red picks up a salty, savory component midpalate. Fresh, bright and harmonious, with a slight chewiness in texture and a lingering mineral aftertaste. Best from 2013 through 2030.
I was blown away by the breathtaking purity and definition of Sandronersquo;s 2004 Barolo Cannubi Boschis. A translucent dark ruby, this weightless yet sumptuous Barolo bursts from the glass with layers of dark ripe fruit that coat the palate with stunning grace and elegance. As it sits in the glass notes of licorice, tar and sweet toasted oak gradually emerge to complete this magnificent wine. I tasted this along with the 2001, which has shut down considerably since I last tasted it earlier this year. Today the 2004 is the more elegant wine although the 2001 looks to be more powerful and perhaps longer-lived. My rating of the 2001 (95) appears to have been conservative by about 2 points. One of the highlights of the vintage, Sandronersquo;s 2004 Barolo Cannubi Boschis is not to be missed. Anticipated maturity: 2012ndash;2024.
The 2001 Barolo Cannubi Boschis is one of the highlights of the vintage. A gorgeous deep translucent ruby, it presents multi-dimensional aromas of dark fruit, plums, spices, minerals, menthol and eucalyptus that meld seamlessly onto the palate where the wine is packed with rich, round flavors of dark cherries and plums. It shows outstanding depth and length with plenty of chewy, yet fine tannins and a long, caressing, balsamic finish. Supremely elegant and refined, it is a beautiful modern-styled Barolo that is hard to resist today and that will provide much pleasure for years to come. Anticipated maturity: 2011ndash;2021.
Aromas of rose petal and ripe fruit, with plum undertones. Full-bodied, with wonderful, focused ripe fruit and a silky, refined finish. The texture is polished and refined. This is classy. Best after 2012.
Absolutely lovely. It starts off dense and tarry on the nose, with plum and chocolate fudge scents, then adds layers of bright floral and cherry notes with airing, while the palate is a whirl of mouthcoating flavors that never seem hamhanded despite the great intensity. Finishes with wonderfully plush tannins, making this approachable now, yet capable of evolving for 20 years.
"The 2006 Barolo Cannubi Boschis is seductive, round and sweet in its ripe dark fruit. The wine continues to gain weight in the glass, showing a level of density that nearly manages to cover the tannins. Floral notes add lift on the finish. This is a powerful, linear Cannubi Boschis with tons of energy and muscle, but it will require quite a bit of patience. Sandrone harvests his three parcels in Cannubi Boschis separately. Vinification takes place in stainless steel...My visit last year with Luciano and Luca Sandrone was illuminating, as I had an opportunity to taste verticals of both of the estate’s Barolos spanning vintages 2005 through 2009, culminating with exceptional bottles of the 1990s, which I report on in this issue’s “What About Now” feature. Sandrone’s 2006 Barolos are among the unqualified successes of the 2006 harvest. The wines show more richness and density than the 2005s, but less exuberance than the 2007s, in a focused, driven style I find quite attractive...97." WA 2/10
