Barolo Cannubi Boschis 2011 MAGNUM
Producteur: Sandrone (Luciano)
Variety Nebbiolo - Piémont - Red wine- 150 cl bottle - Barolo DOCG - Serve at 17 °C
Initially shy and brooding, it eventually reveals a potpourri of aromas, including forest floor, graphite, wild berry, mint, rose and a balsamic note. The palate delivers layers of ripe red cherry, black raspberry, tobacco, ground pepper, menthol and cinnamon alongside youthfully assertive but ripe tannins. Drink 2019–2031.
RP95Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Luciano Sandrone's 2011 Barolo Cannubi Boschis is shaping up to be one of the protagonists of the vintage. I say "shaping up" because the wine is still in a youthful stage and has yet to open up fully. Tight and firm, it shows the potential for enormous depth and dimension with dark fruit, spice, licorice and white truffle. If you taste through Sandrone's older vintages, it is apparent that they perform exceptionally well in warm years like 2011. It promises a rewarding evolution ahead but I would suggest waiting five more years before popping the cork.
Beautiful clarity and freshness with plum, peach and light walnut character. Full body, fine and polished tannins and a clean finish. Try in 2018.

Sandrone's southeast-facing Boschis plot on the Cannubi hill holds the warmth of the morning sun, the grapes growing lush and layered in flavor. Dark notes of chocolate and espresso mellow with air, allowing notes of black plum and baked cherry edged with baking spicy, mint and tobacco to come to the fore. It lingers on the palate with impressive length.
Cherry flavors mingle with wild herb and underbrush notes in this red. Shows purity and a linear profile, backed by a solid structure. More nervous and energetic than a lot of 2011s, presenting a lingering finish. Best from 2019 through 2032.
