This wine has a knock out nose that can't fail to please, we're talking about a beautiful nose with cherries as the standout nose profile with strawberries and hints of tar in the background. Powerful, thick and dense for a Barolo the wine has good amounts of fruit and a fresh and satisfying finish that will have you smacking your lips. I really enjoyed the wine though it lacked the finesse I was expecting.

Great stuff, combining traditional Barolo flavors - dusty earth, leather, floral notes and cherries - with modern touches, like the supple tannins and hints of hickory smoke. This is a big, powerful wine that manages to be burly without being clumsy, intellectually challenging and complex while still delivering lush fruit. Drinkable now, but better several years from now.

Wonderful aromas of roses, berries and violets follow through to a full-bodied palate, with fine tannins and a pretty, caressing finish of sweet fruit. Pretty wine. Best after 2006.

The 2000 Barolo Le Vigne, as always, is the more structured of the two, powerful on the nose with notes of licorice, tar, and macerated cherries, dense and solid in flavor, more muscular than usual and slightly tough on the finish. Time may help these tannins, and the wine can best be drunk between 2006 and 2018.

Sandrone's dark ruby-colored 2001 Barolo Le Vigne presents a fantastic nose of flowers, minerals and crushed raspberries followed by generous amounts of very ripe red fruits, mint and eucalyptus notes with well-integrated oak and fine tannins. It is noticeably more structured than the 2000, with more balance, freshness and a longer finish. Traditional in design, but modern in execution, the 2001 Barolo Le Vigne presents tremendous harmony and elegance. Ideally a few years of cellaring are warranted although the wine is already drinking well today. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2019.

Deep red-ruby. Very closed, extremely primary nose hints at black fruits. Impressively rich, dense and large-scaled, with great sweetness and pliancy in the middle palate. Offers outstanding palate presence without coming off as heavy. Finishes with huge, horizontal, rather muscular tannins and an austere suggestion of menthol. With time in the glass, this classy wine turned increasingly clenched on the back end. I would not be surprised to see this wine go into a shell for several years. But it may well merit a score in the mid-90s when it emerges.

The 2004 Barolo Le Vigne is a phenomenal effort. Sweet, long and pure, it reveals an expansive core of perfumed ripe red fruit, flowers and spices. Despite its notable concentration it is made in a restrained style, showing remarkable elegance as well as harmony, with superb length and finessed tannins on the close. Le Vigne is made from the Ceretta, Vignane, Merli and Conterni vineyards. I have tasted the wines from these plots separately on many occasions. Curiously, I have never been particularly impressed by any of the wines on their own, yet when they are blended the results can be extraordinary, as is the case with the sublime 2004 Le Vigne. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2019.

Le Vigne Barolo offers beautiful clarity and purity in the form of black licorice, cherry cola, spice and black fruit. There's a smoky or ashy note in the background and the wine feels balanced and integral on the tongue thanks to its tight tannins and gritty texture. Cellar for five plus years and drink with lamb cassoulet.
