Luciano Sandrone Barolo ‘Le Vigne’ 2018



In stock

  • A blend of several small parcels of vines from a number of communes, Le Vigne is Luciano Sandrone’s ode to traditional blended Barolo. All the sites that contribute to Le Vigne are markedly different in terms of altitude, soil and exposure, and together they help provide a broad overview of Barolo in a given year: Barolo (Vignane),Serralunga (Baudana), Novello (Merli) and Villero in Castiglione Falletto.

  • Regarding the winemaking, the fruit is mostly destemmed with a very high percentage of whole berries and around a quarter whole-bunch. Wild yeast fermentation begins in tank before the malo and aging occurs in mostly used, 500-litre French oak casks. Times on skins varies between tank, from 10 days up to onemonth. The 2018 was bottled unfiltered after 18 months in cask and allowed to rest in bottle for a further 18 months before release.

“One of my personal favorites, the 2018 Barolo Le Vigne is savory in character andpacked with dark fruit. Ripe cherry and redcurrant cedes to spice, licorice and fragrant rose. The oak is integrated, but there are added accents of spice and dark tar.Le Vigne is a blend of fruit from Baudana in Serralunga d’Alba, Villero in Castiglione Falletto, Vignane in Barolo and Merli in Novello.” – 96+ points, Monica Larner,
