Luciano Sandrone Dolcetto d’Alba 2021



In stock

  • This wine’s purity, fine tannins, texture and freshness are a product of the four highaltitude, vineyards from which it derives. From estate vineyards in Monforte d’Alba, Sandrone draws from Castelletto and Cascina Pe Mol. The latter sits at the top of the ridge leading from Monforte d’Alba to the hamlet of Perno and is among the highest vineyards in the region. In Novello, the fruit comes from Rocche di San Nicola and the whitish marls of Ravera, where the easterly exposure contributesperfume and aromatic complexity. Joining these sites now is fruit from Rivassi and Crosia in Barolo. The wine is made with only natural yeasts, and each parcel is vinified separately before blending.

“Blue/purplish fruit, violets, spice, licorice and rose petal all meld together in thisbracing, taut Dolcetto. This is an especially understated, super-classic style for Sandrone, and it works so well.” 91 points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous
