Luciano Sandrone Nebbiolo Nebbiolo d'Alba Valmaggiore 1997

Winemaker's Notes:

"A classic-quality, rich and ripe Barolo that needs time. Offering lovely plum and spice, with hints of tarragon and roses, it's full-bodied and very rich, almost decadent, with loads of berry, chocolate and meat on the finish...95." WS 9/01.

Not quite as dark as the above. More sauvage aromas of roasted meat and coffee. Expansive and very concentrated, with sappy black cherry flavor offering great sweetness. Perhaps even deeper than the Cannubi Boschis. Wears its oak gracefully. Explosiv... Stephen Tanzer's IWC. A Nebbiolo wine from Piedmont in Italy. 1997 Luciano Sandrone Barolo le Vigne 750ml

1997 was on of the hottest vinatges on record in Piemonte and this wine has all the characteristics of the vintage from it's soft, plush mouthfeel to the tarry, plummy fruit. Sandrone was able to make this blend vineyards yield all that 1997 was able to offer.
