  • TASTING NOTE: Aromas of ripe plums and blackberries rise from the glass, backed by spicy elements and a distinct mineral note. On the palate, the wine is enveloping, elegant, rich, yet balanced and showing good acidity on the finish.
  • ABOUT THE WINE: Grapes are sourced from several high altitude vineyards in Monforte d'Alba and Barolo. Natural fermentation and ageing is in open steel tanks with three months bottle ageing before release.
  • ABOUT THE PRODUCER:  "Of the Piedmont wineries that are still in their first generation, those that started in or around the 1980s, Luciano Sandrone is arguably the only estate that has joined the small group of properties, all of them multi-generational, whose wines are widely recognized as icons and collectibles.” Antonio Galloni, Vinous.                                                                                                     The son of a carpenter, Luciano Sandrone learnt his craft at Giacomo Borgogno and then at Marchesi de Barolo, where he rose to become cellar master, a role he would hold until 1990. In 1978 he purchased a small plot in the then little-known Barolo Cru of Cannubi Boschis. Made in his parent’s garage overlooking the Cannubi hill, Sandrone tentatively took his inaugural Barolo to Vinitaly in 1981, where he sold every one of the 1500 bottles to an American broker. It quickly became one of Piemonte’s first cult wines, first with the 1982 and 1985 vintages, and by the time the 1990 Cannubi received a perfect score from Robert Parker, the dye was cast. Working with his children and grandchildren the estate now covers 27ha of organically farmed vines. Luciano openly references Burgundy in their approach and seek to harvest only perfectly ripe and immaculate fruit. This is one of the keys to the purity and flesh of the wines. Another little-known fact is that 30-50% of the fruit is fermented as whole bunches, with the destemmed portion of the fruit also having a very high percentage of whole berries. Luciano Sandrone remembers well that once upon a time, all the region’s wines were made without destemming. What is most important is that irrespective of fashion or style, Luciano Sandrone crafts wines of profound integrity, purity and deep expression. These are wines made with passion and honesty.
