2014 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."
The 2014 Barolo Le Vigne once again shows the wisdom of blending fruit from different sites. If there is a vintage where blending has the potential to be the difference-maker, 2014 is it. So it is hardly surprising to find the 2014 Le Vigne in such great shape. The red cherry jam, mint, cedar and floral notes are all finely sketched. Medium in body and classy, the 2014 is beautifully textured and inviting from start to finish. All the elements are simply in the right place. Vineyard sources are Merli, Vignane, Villero and Baudana.
