2013 luciano sandrone, barolo, vigne
Why We're Buying
Luciano Sandrone Barolo Le Vigne is everything someone could want in a Barolo. It's balanced, coiled, and deep with a sweet finish. The 2016 vintage is the pinnacle of Luciano Sandrone Barolo Le Vigne. Wine critic Monica Larner, who gave it a 100-point rating, wrote, "I found it to be unforgettable, quite literally, inspiring one of those celebrated "wow" moments that we wine lovers so desperately seek in bottle after bottle."
Sandrone's 2013 Barolo Le Vigne is a real stunner. Powerful, ample and deep, the 2013 exudes class from start to finish. The addition of Serralunga fruit in the blend has added depth and structure in all of the wine's dimensions. Dark red cherry, plum, mint, rose petal, tar and licorice build into the huge, voluptuous finish. Readers who can find the 2013 should not hesitate, as it is outrageously beautiful and also one of the clear wines of the vintage. Vineyard sites are Baudana, Villero, Vignane and Merli. (AG)
