SKU: SANBARVIG19
The name of the wine may have changed, but Sandrone’s flagship Barolo is still, and will remain, 100% Cannubi Boschis, the Barolo vineyard so synonymous with this grower. The Boschis subzone sits near the northern end of the Cannubi hill and is located directly across from the Sandrone cellars. The Cru (of which Sandrone farm 1.9 hectares of 40-year-old vines), has a particularly good exposure to the south and southeast in a small amphitheater or 'conca' that helps hold warmth in the early morning. Its soils are sea deposits of calcareous clay with some sand and therefore excellent drainage.

”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.”
