2006 Luciano Sandrone - Barolo Le Vigne Nebbiolo - Italy - Piedmont - Barolo - Red

Italy - Piedmont - Barolo

Red Nebbiolo
Producer Notes

Long esteemed as a leading producer of the Piedmont, Luciano Sandrone is sometimes mislabeled a "modernizer" of the of the region. In truth, he is more of a relaxer of the mediums that make the wines here long-lived, but difficult to get around in their youth.

In a sense this is Sandrone’s "traditional Barolo" in so far as it is a blend of several small parcels of vines (the sites are listed below). It is the product of four winegrowing areas; all very different in terms of altitude, soil and exposure. All come together in a remarkable synergy to produce this wonderful Barolo. The vineyards are as follows: Vignane (Barolo), Merli (Novello), Conterni (Monforte), Ceretta (Monforte). BIBENDUM Sandrone’s 2006 Barolo Le Vigne possesses awesome balance as intricately woven layers of aromas and flavors come together in the glass. The 2006 is an especially powerful Le Vigne boasting a solid core of floral, red fruits supported by firm yet elegant tannins. This, too, shows the considerable drive and focus that is the hallmark of the vintage. The wine’s overall balance is impeccable. Le Vigne is made from parcels in Vignane (Barolo), Conterni and Ceretta (Monforte) and Merli (Novello). The wines are aged separately for a year in 500-liter barrels. The final blend is assembled, after which the wine spends an additional year in oak prior to being bottled. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2026. ANTONIO GALLONI

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
