AWE blind tasting - sweet oaked nose, coffee candy and smoke, some ham, lingonberry and mint, sweet oakiness right up front yields to a dilute mid-palate with nice flavors but really low key, but why? 83-84

Sandrone's 2005 Barolo Cannubi Boschis offers up pretty notes of mint, flowers, spices and dark red berries, with sweet notes of French oak that linger on the finish. This is a decidedly slender Cannubi Boschis that lacks some of the sheer pedigree a... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

Not as dense as some vintages but boasts lovely fruit intensity and verve. Fi... Stephen Tanzers IWC. A Nebbiolo wine from Piedmont in Italy. 2005 Luciano Sandrone Barolo Cannubi Boschis 1500ml


Winemaker's Notes:

Berry Bros & Rudd review: Cannubi Boschis - the story goes that Luciano first set eyes on Cannubi Boschis<br/>(along the ridge from the original Cannubi) during his time as consultant<br/>winemaker for Barolo Marchesi di Barolo, who was at that time buying the fruit<br/>in. Luciano did the deal during the mid-'80s, securing the vineyard for<br/>himself, and for the future enjoyment by his customers! Whatever the vintage it<br/>always seems to charm with its delicious strawberry fruit aromas, detail and<br/>gentle softness; the high percentage of sand bringing warmth and sensuality to<br/>the final wine. Like a wave washing over you it coats the senses. And yes it<br/>will age for many years, till 2020; but boy does it taste good now. <br/>(David Berry Green, BBR Buyer)
