Luciano Sandrone Barolo Cannubi Boschis

Very limited release!
Just starting to hit it's drinking window!  Decant it and enjoy!

2012 Luciano Sandrone Barolo Cannubi Boschis...$149.99
Shows firm tannins and pretty structure for the vintage. Tight and precise with super polished tannins and a lovely center palate of ripe fruit and earthy undertones. Very, very refined. Classy. Better in 2019.
Rated 96/100 James Suckling
With a core of cherry flavors and assertive tannins, this Barolo is right out of central casting. Accents of mint, tar, tobacco and tea add dimension. The finish is linear and firm. Fine acidity keeps this focused and long. Best from 2020 through 2035. 220 cases imported.
Rated 94/100 The Wine Spectator
The 2012 Barolo Cannubi Boschis is a solid and tighter wine compared to the 2012 Le Vigne. Having said that, it veers close to being too austere and hard-bodied, especially at this young stage of its life. Of Sandrone's two new Barolo releases, this wine definitely needs more time to evolve and soften with extra years of bottle aging. The tannins are more evident and the wine's firm backbone acts to support dark fruit flavors with distant accents of spice, licorice and tobacco. Start drinking in 2018
Rated 94/100 Wine Advocate
