Tight wild berry fruit on the nose shows off a bit of earthiness with fine dried herb notes and  soft toasty oak adding detail. Fresh, angular tannins pop on entry followed  by  lovely tiny cherry fruit, roses, pomegranate, and a little purple fruit on the palate. This shows silky integration with aromatic fruit on the moderately long finish. This is tense and precise with good aromatic freshness, 92pts

Sandrone's 2008 Barolo Le Vigne is a wine of breathtaking textural finesse and elegance. Nothing really stands out, so phenomenal is the wine's balance and sense of harmony. This is the kind of wine that is easy to overlook because it doesn't ask for... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate. A Nebbiolo wine from Piedmont in Italy. 2008 Luciano Sandrone Barolo le Vigne 1500ml

The 2008 Nebbiolo d'Alba Valmaggiore is the product of a challenging harvest. A soft, mid-weight wine, the Valmaggiore flows with the essence of dried fruit, flowers, sweet herbs and spices. This is a relatively easygoing Valmaggiore that doesn't qui... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate. A Nebbiolo wine from Piedmont in Italy. 2008 Luciano Sandrone Nebbiolo Valmaggiore 750ml

Good deep, bright red. Sexy, carnal aromas of crushed raspberry, rose petal and sexy oak lifted by a note of rose petal. Vibrant, tight and firmly built, with lively acids giving lift and definition to the flavors of crushed red fruits, flowers and leather. Not yet delivering the texture promised by the nose but this very long, solidly tannins Barolo is an infant today.

A rich, muscular structure cradles the cherry and strawberry fruit in this intense red. Tar and spice flavors add complexity as this turns tannic and impenetrable on the finish, with an undercurrent of racy acidity. Best from 2017 through 2038.

Winemaker's Notes:

From the climatic point of view, 2008 took us back to the Seventies with very rainy spring and summer which made the management of the vineyards decidedly difficult. Only thanks to the generous months of August, September and October the grapes were able to complete the ripening process in the best manner. The vintage 2008 undoubtedly rewarded the zones best suited to the cultivation of vines, and particularly those who invested in meticulous vine cultivation operations just at the right time.
