Luciano Sandrone is one of Barolo's undeniable superstars. With the Langhe in his blood, Luciano began working the vines around his family home in his teenage years. He's taken some liberties with the region's traditions — for instance, he prefers a slightly shorter maceration — but always honors the exquisite terroir and the local grape varieties. Techniques like organic viticulture (practicing, but not certified), low yields and vinification in large, neutral vessels, Sandrone showcases the purity of the fruit and the land.

Professional Reviews

Antonio Galloni

AG 98
"Sandrone's 2013 Barolo Le Vigne is a real stunner. Powerful, ample and deep, the 2013 exudes class from start to finish. The addition of Serralunga fruit in the blend has added depth and structure in all of the wine's dimensions. Dark red cherry, plum, mint, rose petal, tar and licorice build into the huge, voluptuous finish. Readers who can find the 2013 should not hesitate, as it is outrageously beautiful and also one of the clear wines of the vintage. Vineyard sites are Baudana, Villero, Vignane and Merli." -Vinous

Robert Parker

RP 96
"The 2013 Barolo le Vigne is another stellar achievement from Luciano Sandrone and his family. Since 2010, the blend for this wine has been tweaked just a bit to include more fruit from the Baudana cru in Serralunga d'Alba. This wine shows a ripe and succulent mouthfeel with ample richness and power that drives the wine smoothly over the palate. These darker qualities can be attributed to the Baudana fruit that is known for power and heft. Fruit from the Villero cru in Castiglione Falletto offers delicate perfumes and ethereal elegance. This vineyard site is home to loose, sandy soils. The combination of these two extremes is simply delightful." -Robert Parker

Decanter

"An admirable vintage for this classic blend. Dense cherry fruit on the nose, and a broad, fleshy palate which is full-bodied but compact, with vigour, balance, and persistence."

Wine Spectator

WS 95
"A taut, racy style, this boasts cherry, strawberry, licorice and leather flavors, with hints of mineral, iron, spice and underbrush. Remains vibrant on the finish, which stretches out. The fruit comes back at the end."

Wine Enthusiast

WE 97
"Alluring scents of blue flower, rose petal, woodland berry, baking spice and new leather take center stage along with a balsamic note of menthol. The delicious enveloping palate doles out juicy morello cherry, crushed raspberry, cinnamon and licorice framed in refined tannins and bright acidity. It's polished and already tempting but hold for even more complexity."
