Sandrone Le Vigne Barolo 2006 / 1.5 L.

Item#: 69088

RP9696 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 28th Feb 2011
Sandrone’s 2006 Barolo Le Vigne possesses awesome balance as intricately woven layers of aromas and flavors come together in the glass. The 2006 is an especially powerful Le Vigne boasting a solid core of floral, red fruits supported by firm yet elegant tannins. This, too, shows the considerable drive and focus that is the hallmark of the vintage. The wine’s overall balance is impeccable. Le Vigne is made from parcels in Vignane (Barolo), Conterni and Ceretta (Monforte) and Merli (Novello). The wines are aged separately for a year in 500-liter barrels. The final blend is assembled, after which the wine spends an additional year in oak prior to being bottled. Anticipated maturity: 2016–2026.
ST94+94+ pts. - Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar - Jan/Feb 2011
Bright deep ruby-red. Complex aromas of red cherry, blueberry and brown spices. Full-bodied and deep, with high but harmonious acidity giving focus to the red cherry, camphor and mineral flavors. Youthfully chewy yet smooth tannins stain the palate on the long, firm finish. Though the fruit is starting to show through, this vintage of Le Vigne maintains an air of austerity and strictness that will take years to shed. Forget about this beauty in your cellar for at least another ten years.
SP9292 pts. - Wine Spectator - Apr 30, 2011
Black cherry, plum, tar and licorice flavors are sweet and offset the firm structure in this red, which has a fine, spicy aftertaste. There’s an almost lush texture, and though this is balanced, it needs time to come together. Best from 2014 through 2030.

Located in northwestern Italy near the Italian Alps, Piedmont is home to two of Italy's more famous wines: Barolos and Barbarescos. Each of these wines are made with the Nebbiolo grape, which is the premier red grape in the region. Other red grapes of note used in Piedmont include Barbera and Dolcetto. Among white wine grapes used in Piedmont are Moscatos, which are increasing in popularity here in the US. Piedmont's capital city Torino is also home to large productions of Vermouth, also made from Moscato.

RP9797 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 27th Jun 2013
The last wine of the flight is the outstanding 2006 Barolo Riserva Villero. It literally bursts open to full force intensity and beauty. It’s a mind-blowing interpretation of the often austere and brooding Nebbiolo grape that shows abundant life and vigor. Dark leather, cured beef, pressed rose petal, candied fruit, prune, cola, dried herbs and crushed mineral emerge from the glass like an aromatic marching band. Anticipated maturity: 2016–2035.
SP9696 pts. - Wine Spectator - Feb 28, 2014
Though on the linear side, this Barolo is full of sweet cherry, licorice, leather, savory herb and tobacco aromas and flavors. Dense and taut, showing a granular feel to the well-integrated tannins. This remains fresh and focused on the long, savory- and mineral-tinged finish. Best from 2016 through 2035. 327 cases made.

Sandrone Le Vigne Barolo 2011 / 750 ml.

2011 / 750 ml.

Item #: 81807

VN9696 pts. - Vinous - Sep 2014
Rose petal, mint, crushed flowers, sweet red berries and cinnamon are some of the many notes that take shape in the glass. A wine of exquisite perfume and aromatic lift, the 2011 Le Vigne is all about finesse and pure texture. With time in the glass, the 2011 blossoms into a layered, head-turning wine. This is a great effort from Sandrone. In 2011, Le Vigne includes fruit from Villero for the first time. Few wines straddle the modern and traditional with this much pure finesse.
VN9696 pts. - Vinous - Mar 2015
Sandrone’s 2011 Barolo Le Vigne is sweet, silky and exceptionally polished in the glass. Sweet floral notes, bright red berries, subtle spices and mint are all laced together nicely in the glass. Le Vigne is a blend of fruit from multiple vineyard sources. This is the first year in which Villero is part of the blend.
WS9595 pts. - Wine & Spirits - December 1, 2015
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.
RP9494 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 28th Jun 2015
The 2011 Barolo Le Vigne is an opulent and shapely wine with a point of extra cherry softness that you don’t get in the 2011 Barolo Cannubi Boschis. That wine shows more austerity and vigor compared to this expression. But Le Vigne delivers an unexpected touch of roundness and opulence that fits the historic profile of this beautiful rendition of Nebbiolo. It presents a slightly more immediate style but it also has the inner grace and poise for a long cellar evolution.
WE9494 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 10/1/2015
Underbrush, scorched earth, dried berry, violet and spice aromas slowly emerge on this generous, polished wine. On the palate, fine-grained tannins frame dried black cherry, grilled herb and anise. It’s almost accessible and is going to offer terrific drinking in the near and mid-term. Enjoy 2017–2026.

Sandrone Barolo Aleste 2019 / 750 ml.

2019 / 750 ml.

Item #: 1362

VN9797 pts. - Vinous - Jan 2023
The 2019 Barolo Aleste is another stellar wine from Sandrone. Like Le Vigne, the Aleste is a tightly wound ball of energy. Dark cherry, mocha, plum, licorice and lavender all race across the palate. This racy, but youthfully austere Barolo has a ton to offer. There’s more density and a darker profile than in the Le Vigne, sort of like a soloist to Le Vigne’s orchestra. (Antonio Galloni)
RP9797 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 24th Aug 2023
Aleste is a contraction of the names Alessia and Stefano, grandchildren of the late Luciano Sandrone. With fruit from Cannubi Boschis, the 2019 Barolo Aleste shows important richness and structure. This is the proverbial Barolo with a capital B. It reveals thick layers of dark fruit, cherry and spice. It shows sweet tannins and impactful texture. When tasting at the winery, Le Vigne is usually served first, and Aleste comes after that. Both wines promise a very long aging window. (Monica Larner)
SP9696 pts. - Wine Spectator - Dec 31, 2023
This red leans more toward black cherry, blackberry and violet flavors, with tar, tea and autumn wood underbrush accents lurking underneath. Firm, dense and persists on the sinewy finish. Combines elegance with power, but needs time. Best from 2027 through 2048. 800 cases made, 200 cases imported. (Bruce Sanderson)

Sandrone Vite Talin Barolo 2016 / 750 ml.

2016 / 750 ml.

Item #: 98961

RP9898 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 23rd Jun 2022
This is a wine I have jealously followed since its birth. The Luciano Sandrone 2016 Barolo Vite Talin is another superstar. This is a complete wine, with depth, intensity and a fully generous and embracing personality. It’s like a warm hug. The tannins are tight and the wine needs more time to fully soften. At this young point in its life, it offers plenty of dark primary fruit, spice and black licorice. (Monica Larner)
VN9898 pts. - Vinous - Feb 2022
The 2016 Barolo Vite Talin is a stunning wine, just as it always has been. Over the least few years, the 2016 has gained a measure of classicism it did not show as a young wine. The purity of the flavors, the wine’s balance, its pedigree, well, they are all off the charts. The Vite Talin emerges from two parcels with heavily virused vines that naturally produce a minuscule crop. It spent two years in 500-liter tonneaux and a year in cask. (Antonio Galloni)
WS9898 pts. - Wine & Spirits - 10/22
The grapes that produce this wine were grafted from a single vine that caught Luciano Sandrone’s attention in 1987; it was eventually proven to be a low-yielding clone of nebbiolo. He says it is almost like an extreme version of the Michet clone, with smaller berries and looser bunches that are less prone to mildew. This is the third release of Vite Talin, and while it shows the dense concentration characteristic of this wine, it also captures the freshness of the 2016 vintage in its delicate lavender scents and exhilarating acidity. Tightly wound flavors of black plum and dark cherry brim with umami savor, unfolding after a few hours in the glass to reveal notes of salted black licorice, hoisin and a brilliant streak of salinity.
SP9797 pts. - Wine Spectator - Apr 30, 2023
A bright, well-defined red, featuring red and black cherry, black currant, eucalyptus and mineral aromas and flavors. This is supported by a matrix of dense yet refined tannins, which yield to the ripe fruit in the end. Feels almost weightless, yet packs plenty of flavors and structure. Best from 2025 through 2047. 208 cases made, 25 cases imported. (Bruce Sanderson)
JS9797 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Sunday, October 2, 2022
Wow, this is super-succulent and silky smooth with concentrated aromas of plums, berries and fresh sous-bois notes of dried leaves and flowers. A note of powdery wet stone adds another dimension. Full-bodied palate, where some bright, oaky notes add their weight, creating a well-pitched blend of still firm oak and fruit tannin that creates a measured framework for all the complex flavors. The finish is long and driven. A multifaceted Barolo that’s a joy to taste now, but still needs a few years to show its best. Try from 2025.

2019 / 750 ml.

Item #: 1361

RP9797 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 24th Aug 2023
The 2019 Barolo Le Vigne is a historic blend of fruit from Baudana in Serralunga d’Alba, Villero in Castiglione Falletto, Vignane in Barolo and Merli in Novello. This year, a fifth site was added to the final blend. It is the Le Coste MGA in Barolo with south-facing exposures and 45-year-old vines in a two-hectare parcel. The backbone of this wine is Baudana, and Merli adds freshness. The wine needs more time in bottle, but already it proves generous and bold with dark fruit, spice and crushed mineral. (Monica Larner)
VN9797 pts. - Vinous - Jan 2023
The 2019 Barolo Le Vigne is pure and total seduction. Kirsch, sweet pipe tobacco, mint, cedar, dried herbs and orange peel all grace a Le Vigne built on mid-weight structure and energy. There is a feeling of youthful classicism and austerity that is so beguiling. Readers should plan on being patient, though. The 2019 won’t be ready to drink anytime soon, but there is enough fruit to make me think it will be superb, in time. (Antonio Galloni)
SP9595 pts. - Wine Spectator - Dec 31, 2023
A tightly wound red, with floral, cherry, iron, earth and underbrush aromas and flavors. Beefy, with the vintage's characteristic austerity and a strong grip on the finish. The tannins lend a compact feel in the end, yet this stretches out on the finish, with a core of pure fruit. Best from 2027 through 2047. 1,500 cases made, 350 cases imported. (Bruce Sanderson)

2009 / 750 ml.

Item #: 75985

RP9595 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 27th Jun 2013
The 2009 Barolo Le Vigne shows class and pedigree with bright fruit tones carefully wrapped within the wine’s elegant texture. The purity and the intensity of the wine are exceptional, especially when compared to other Barolos from this vintage. The bouquet is polished and long, with pristine accents of spice, licorice and anise seed. Made with fruit sourced from various parcels, this wine speaks with a strong and confident tone. Anticipated maturity: 2015–2028.
SP9090 pts. - Wine Spectator - Nov 30, 2013
Coffee, licorice, tar and spice flavors mingle in this rich, firmly structured red. A bit reticent, with a sweet core and dense, dusty tannins on the finish. Best from 2017 through 2030. 450 cases imported.
