Critical Acclaim

RP100 Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 23rd Jul 2020

"I absolutely adore this wine on every emotional and intellectual level. I can still taste it today, weeks after my first sampling. The Luciano Sandrone 2016 Barolo Le Vigne is a stirring and profound expression that pulls on your heartstrings. I found it to be unforgettable, quite literally, inspiring one of those celebrated “wow” moments that we wine lovers so desperately seek in bottle after bottle. Le Vigne is a clever blend of fruit from Baudana in Serralunga d’Alba (offering the power), Villero in Castiglione Falletto (shaping the precision), Vignane in Barolo (adding to the purity of the aromas) and Merli in Novello (that helps to flesh out the fruit). This intersection of various vineyards spanning the appellation creates a pyramid of perfection and beauty. The wine shows large construction, but that fruit weight is balanced against the vivid cherry, spice, aniseed and campfire ash that gently lift from the bouquet." (100 pts.)

VN98+ Vinous Feb 2020

"The 2016 Barolo Le Vigne is brilliant and explosive in the glass, with tons of brightness, energy and tension. Classically austere, the 2016 is going to take a few years to be at its best, and yet the wine is so arrestingly beautiful today. A mix of freshly cut and dried flowers, mint and pine add an intriguing upper register. In 2016, Le Vigne is finely chiseled and sculpted from start to finish. Bright saline notes add a closing kick of freshness." (98+ pts.)

SP95 Wine Spectator Oct 7, 2020

"Pretty cherry, strawberry and floral aromas and flavors are shaded by underbrush, iron and tobacco notes in this chewy red. A wall of tannins puts a strong grip on the finish, but give the fruit the benefit of the doubt. Best from 2024 through 2048. 265 cases imported." (95 pts.)

WS98 Wine & Spirits October 1, 2020

"Barolo’s 2016 growing season brought long and slow ripening to the vines, resulting in this powerful wine. A blend of fruit from Vignane in Barolo, Merli in Novello, Baudana in Serralunga d’Alba and Villero in Castiglione Falletto, it offers complex flavors of red cherry and plum, orange peel and mint, framed by chiseled tannins and racy acidity. The wine is utterly compelling and delicious upon the first taste, then begins to shut down as the tannins enclose the fruit. A young thoroughbred, this will improve over the next decade and beyond." (98 pts.)

Wines of Italy are complex and flavorful, much like the culture that is their source and the cuisine that is their match.
