A model of finesse and understatement, the 2008 Barolo Le Vigne is every bit as thrilling as it has always been. At nearly 10 years of age, the 2008 is still bright, precise and very fresh. Sweet red cherry, rose petal and mint notes are beautifully sketched in a Barolo that is pure and total class. In 2008, vineyard sources are Vignane, Merli, Ceretta and Conterni.

Showing beautifully with plenty of life left. Still young with lots bright red fruits. Strong cherry with some hints of tobacco, leather, and blackcurrant. Chewy and a long finish.

Happy V Day!

Yesterday afternoon we had the pleasure of having the 2012 Luciano Sandrone Barolo Le Vigne.

The nose brought on red fruit, cherry, raspberries, strawberry, red currant, floral notes of roses, anise, licorice and spice.

On the palate there was cherry, raspberry, red currant, leather, licorice, a touch of tar and spice.

The wine is medium to full bodied with medium acidity, medium + smooth tannins that lead to a long clean well balanced finish. Today starts a long holiday weekend that leads right into the new year. Please be safe and enjoy the holidays with family and friends. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

Tight and closed. Nice balance but needs 10 years. No nose or finish as yet.

Lovely wine. Opened up and rounded out after about four hours double decanted. Supple cherries, bitter almond, tar. Lots of life left in this one.
