Luciano Sandrone Nebbiolo Barolo Cannubi Boschis 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

"The single-vineyard 2009 Barolo Cannubi Boschis opens with intense focus and sharpness. Beyond its dark color and bold appearance is a stunning embroidery of delicate floral and wild berry aromas. It’s easy to recognize each distinct layer: licorice, tar, pressed violets, dried mint, white truffle and wet earth. Silky tannins, long and fine, give the wine structure and longevity. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2030...96+"WA

Perfumed with aromas of cut red fruit and chalky soil tones over a nice base of oak spice. Air brings out classic roses and cherry in alcohol with a fine white soil tone. This is rich with soft, opulent fruit that remains fresh even though it's quite ripe. While not particularly tannic, there is nice cut to the fruit, and a bit of austerity to help play off the sweetness of the fruit. That cherry fruit lingers on the fairly long finish which is bit spicy with coffee tones and a hint of tar arriving late. Easy, and yet fairly intense. There’s a fair amount of wine here. 91pts

Sandrone owns 4.7 acres in Cannubi Boschis, a south-southeast-facing bowl that catches the morning sun near the northern end of the Cannubi cru. The terroir allowed for the optimal expression of Sandrone’s style, a supple, modern wine with powerful mineral tension underneath. This is dressed for a night on the town, with creamy black tannins and anise galore. Rather than feeling pushed, it feels balanced, the richness tightly framed by spice and lasting earthy blackness. Built for the cellar.
