Displays bright berry and truffle on the nose. Full-bodied, with fine tannins and a caressing finish. There’s just a hint of new wood. Balanced and beautiful. Best after 2009. 1,165 cases made. ?JS
The 2003 Barolo Le Vigne may have a slight edge over the Cannubi Boschis in this vintage, as the ability to blend fruit from various microclimates was a big advantage. It is a full-bodied, soft-textured Barolo with lively color and plenty of ripe red fruit, menthol and spices. This is an especially fresh, vibrant wine for the vintage, with tannins that are particularly refined. A recent vertical of Le Vigne back to 1995 found the 1995, 1997 and 1998 drinking well and the 1996, 1999, 2000 and 2001 approachable, but still with additional upside potential. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2015. ”
Deep ruby-red. Superripe aromas of black cherry, dark plum, cinnamon, truffle and tar show surprising freshness for the extremely hot vintage. Creamy, sweet and dense, with layers of ripe red and black fruit, earthy brown spice and underbrush flavors. Balanced and long on the finish, with the otherwise smooth tannins turning just a touch dry at the back. Considering the furnace-like conditions of the 2003 vintage, this wine has an amazing amount of acidity to provide lift and precision, and I prefer the Le Vigne to the Cannubi Boschis this year. Sandrone believes that the surprising acidity level is due to the higher altitude of the vines used to make Le Vigne. Nevertheless, he still had to harvest nine or ten days earlier than usual even in those parcels, starting in Ceretta on September 15 and finishing in Vignane by September 29.

Luciano Sandrone is one of the leading producers in Barolo. His story is well known: after years of work as a cellarman he purchased his first vineyard on the Cannubi hill. Since their first harvest in 1978, Luciano and his brother Luca have devoted tremendous efforts towards cultivating the finest fruit in their vineyards, which now cover 63 acres in the best parts of Langa and Roero, and to taking extraordinary care in the cellar. Sandrone’s Barolos are sometimes described as straddling the modern and traditional styles in the region: elegant, attractive and easy to appreciate right from their first years in bottle, but with no less power and structure than traditional Barolos. Along with the extremely low yields in the vineyard, Sandrone has a very rational approach in the cellar. This approach, however, is also unique and outside of simple classification, as Sandrone subjects his wines to a relatively short maceration period, does not use rotary fermentors, and makes limited use of new oak in the maturation process, all signs of a traditional approach in the cellar. The new winery, built in 1998 at the foot of the steep Cannubi hillside in the heart of the Barolo district, is characterized by the respect for tradition and desire for innovation that also define Sandrone wines. “Luciano Sandrone is one of the leading lights in Piedmont. No grower has managed to so brilliantly reconcile modern and traditional approaches in making wines that are soft, supple and approachable when young, but also capable of aging beautifully.? Antonio Galloni, Wine Advocate, November 2007.
