    The 2017 Barolo Le Vigne is rich, pliant and so expressive. Even so, I imagine it will need a few years to open up fully. Bright red fruit, rose petal, blood orange and spice give the 2017 its distinctly red-toned profile. Elegant and translucent, the 2017 is very nicely balanced. Vineyard sources are Baudana, Villero, Vignane and Merli. Drink 2025-2037

    Opulent and very sexy with perfume, cedar, dried flowers and dried strawberries and just a hint of nutmeg. It’s medium to full-bodied with round and finely velvety tannins and a flavorful finish. So seductive. Drink after 2025.

Producer

Luciano Sandrone

One of the most respected and admired names in Piedmont, Luciano Sandrone has been making exceptional wines for over 40 years. Beginning with a modest plot in Cannubi Boschis in 1978, his now 20-hectare estate produces some of the world’s best Barolos. Throughout its history, this hallowed estate has always remained true to the DNA of their vineyards; they practice minimal intervention and, unlike many other winemakers in the region, use smaller old French oak barrels to deliver precision and preserve the purity and aromatics of the fruit. Many consider Luciano to be a visionary and his children, Luca and Barbara, are now working alongside him to maintain their father’s philosophy. A favourite amongst top wine critics, Sandrone’s wines are not to be missed.

Region

Barolo

With Brunello in Tuscany, Barolo is undoubtedly Italy's finest wine producing region. Located in Piedmont in the north west of Iataly Barolo is comprised of 5 major communes - Barolo, Monteforte d'Alba, La Morra, Castiglione Falletto and Serralunga d'Alba - though the latter three tend to represent the main styles of the region. The wines are compelling and polished - an exemplary expression of the Nebbiolo grape. DOCG law requires a minimum ageing of 2 years in cask or barrel yet can be longer depending on the producer. Barolos are generally released four or more years after the vintage.
