Luciano Sandrone Cannubi Boschis Barolo Nebbiolo 2012

$115

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... James Suckling

The last Boschis (since renamed by Sandrone) and a great one. What a nose, bridle leather and rich red flowers. Beautifully delineated with tarry red fruit, asphalt and Asian spice. Long and beautifully tannic tail, decanted 1 hr but this will need 5-8 years to peak.

Luciano Sandrone is making some of his finest wines in what has been a long and extraordinary career full of successes. Of the Piedmont wineries that are still in their first generation, those that started in or around the 1980s, Luciano Sandrone is arguably the only estate that has joined the small group of properties, all of them multi-generational, whose wines are widely recognized as icons and collectibles. The 2012 Barolo Cannubi Boschis opens with beguiling aromatics redolent of crushed rose petal, spices, mint and new leather. Wonderfully layered and nuanced, the 2012 offers good freshness to match its inviting, supple fruit. I would prefer to drink it sooner rather than later, while its alluring, open-knit personality is on full display. In 2012, the fruit tends towards the redder end of spectrum, unusual for Cannubi Boschis, which usually tends towards darker shades of expression. The 2012 is perfumed, lithe and super classy from start to finish. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, Mar 2017)
