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)

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. The wines undergo malolactic fermentation and are aged in 500-liter barrels (roughly 20% new) for a year. Once the final blend is assembled, the wine goes back into oak for another year prior to being bottled in the spring. Sandrone is one of the earliest producers to bottle, which he does to preserve as much freshness as possible. Anticipated maturity: 2016andndash;2031. Sandroneandrsquo;s 2006 Barolos are among the unqualified successes of the 2006 harvest.

Bright, deep red-ruby. Highly perfumed aromas of dark raspberry and graphite. Wonderfully aromatic and pliant in the mouth, with sweet flavors of cherry, wild raspberry, chocolate and mocha. I like the impression of baby fat over a supporting spine of minerality. Finishes with big, chewy, rich tannins and lovely lingering sweetness, with some sexy oak tones apparent. This wine remained on its lees until the end of August of this year, with Sandrone doing an occasional batonnage.

The 2007 Barolo Cannubi Boschis dazzles from start to finish. It shows marvelous delineation and freshness in its voluptuous, harmonious fruit, with no hard edges and an expansive, textured personality that conquers both the palate and intellect. Here, too, the oak is very well integrated, while the winersquo;s balance and overall sense of harmony are nothing short of stunning. This is one of the very finest vintages of Cannubi Boschis.

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.

Impressive ruby-red color. Reticent, slightly reduced nose opens quickly to show tangy spices, minerally soil tones, woodsmoke and a note of underbrush. Then juicy and vibrant in the middle, with a dense minerally character and the harmonious ripe acidity of the finest rsquo;98; velvety wine with great verve. Boasts a strong, ripe flavor of red fruit syrup and an incipient truffley perfume. The sweet fruit outlasts the substantial tannins on the long, lively finish.

Their single-vineyard Barolo, Cannubi Boschis, is clearly the better wine in 1998. Itrsquo;s harmonious and refined, yet powerful and rich, It has glorious aromas of roses, berries, and minerals and is full-bodied, with pinpointed, silky tannins and a long finish. This is wonderfully crafted and classy. Best after 2006.

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
