Luciano Sandrone Le Vigne Barolo 2011

Description

Winemaker Notes

Le Vigne is a wine created from four different vineyards, each of which brings its own contribution. The first vineyard, Vignane, issituated in the historical part of the Barolo appellation and shares many characteristics with Cannubi but does not possess the latter'saromatic complexity. The Merli vineyard is located in Novello, with the Sandrone section in a south-southwest facing bowl thatcaptures the afternoon light perfectly. The wines made from here are earthy and robust but with good aromatic complexity. The thirdvineyard, Baudana, is a newly acquired site in Serralunga d'Alba, and gives the wine an additional depth and richness. As of 2011, LeVigne also includes fruit from Villero, a newly acquired vineyard in Castiglione Falletto.

Critical Acclaim

Wine & Spirits
This vintage marks the first time Luciano Sandrone has included fruit from a 3.7-acre plot in Castiglione Falletto’s Villero cru in Le Vigne. Sandrone acquired the site via a long-term lease in early 2011, just in time to manage it through the growing season. It joins fruit from Merli in Novello, Baudana in Serralunga, and Vignane in Barolo, which Sandrone has vinfied separately and woven into a seamless, opulent wine. Polished tannins create a glide path for vibrant raspberry and cherry flavors accented with clove, nutmeg and vanilla. While the rich flavors and silky texture are alluring now, this has long cellaring potential.

James Suckling
A wonderfully tight and polished young red with dark berry, plum and citrus character. Roses too. Full body, firm tannins and a bright finish. Better in 2017.
