Luciano Sandrone Barolo Le Vigne 2019

$260.00

The best wines combine all the elements, to the point where simple epithets won’t do. Here with the Le Vigne, we have a great wine. With aromas of Middle Eastern spices, potpourri, Turkish tobacco, sweet earth and heady red fruits. Incredible depth, with layer upon layer of flavour. Darkness on the edge of town stuff, and in the middle too, with graceful tannins, pulling the wine across the palate; pointing, calming and settling like rocky-laden concrete. Immense, elegant and beautiful. Feminine. Waters Wine Co

 

“Rose, menthol, star anise and baking spice are just some of the aromas that appear on the gorgeous Sandrone Barolo Le Vigne 2019. Focused, elegant and savory, the vibrant palate offers juicy red cherry, spiced cranberry, crushed mint and ground clove before a licorice close. A backbone of fine-grained tannins provide support while bright acidity keeps it impeccably balanced and loaded with energy and tension. What a stunner.” 98 points, Kerin O’Keefe, kerinokeefe.com

 

“The 2019 Barolo Le Vigne is pure and total seduction. Kirsch, sweet pipe tobacco, mint, cedar, dried herbs and orange peel all grace a Le Vigne built on mid-weight structure and energy. There is a feeling of youthful classicism and austerity that is so beguiling. Readers should plan on being patient, though. The 2019 won’t be ready to drink anytime soon, but there is enough fruit to make me think it will be superb, in time.” 97 points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous

 

“The 2019 Barolo Le Vigne is a historic blend of fruit from Baudana in Serralunga d’Alba, Villero in Castiglione Falletto, Vignane in Barolo and Merli in Novello. This year, a fifth site was added to the final blend. It is the Le Coste MGA in Barolo with south-facing exposures and 45-year-old vines in a two-hectare parcel. The backbone of this wine is Baudana, and Merli adds freshness. The wine needs more time in bottle, but already it proves generous and bold with dark fruit, spice and crushed mineral.” 97+ points, Monica Larner, The Wine Advocate
