Sandronersquo;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: 2009ndash;2019.

Great stuff, combining traditional Barolo flavors mdash; dusty earth, leather, floral notes and cherries mdash; 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.

Medium red. Perfumed, expansive nose offers subtle red fruits, licorice, menthol and spices. Lush, sweet, full and mellow, with a dominant flavor of strawberry. Rich and seamless in the style of the vintagersquo;s best examples, without loss of definition or freshness. Finishes suave and sweet, with very fine tannins and lovely persistence.

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: 2008ndash;2019.

Boy, this is beautiful to smell! Fresh-picked strawberries and cherries, with just the right amount of cloves. Hints of prunes. Full-bodied, with soft and round tannins and a long fresh-fruit finish. Goes on and on. Hard not to drink this. This is a blend taken from various sites in the Barolo and Monforte drsquo;Alba areas. Best after 2005.

Le Vigne Barolo offers beautiful clarity and purity in the form of black licorice, cherry cola, spice and black fruit. Therersquo;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.

Black cherry, plum, tar and licorice flavors are sweet and offset the firm structure in this red, which has a fine, spicy aftertaste. Therersquo;s an almost lush texture, and though this is balanced, it needs time to come together. Best from 2014 through 2030.

Winemaker's Notes:

As is to be expected the 2004 Nebbiolo d'Alba Valmaggiore is noticeably fresherand more vibrant in its aromas as well as flavors. It is a beautifullydelineated effort, bursting with sweet fruit, tar mineral, spices and well-integrated oak, displaying outstanding depth and fine overall balance. Thislovely Nebbiolo shows just how compelling the wines from Roero can be, and mayvery well be Sandrone's finest effort from these vines in Vezza d'Alba.Highly recommended. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2016 (A. Galloni -Wine Advocate -Apr 07)
