Luciano Sandrone 'Aleste' Barolo
“Dried rose, blue flower, aromatic herb, wild berry and a whiff of pipe tobacco are just some of the aromas you'll find on this stunning red. It's elegant and structured, delivering raspberry compote, crushed strawberry, cinnamon and star anise framed in bright acidity and firm fine-grained tannins. It has fantastic tension and energy, and promises to age well for years. 95 points, (KO) Wine Enthusiast
“Aleste, formerly labeled as Cannubi Boschis and still sourced from that cru, is surprisingly expressive for a young Barolo. The 2014 vintage was notoriously rainy through the summer, but careful vineyard management and a run of warm, sunny days in September allowed the grapes to ripen fully, giving a medium-bodied wine with deep flavors of cherry and plum laced with notes of menthol, rosemary and warm spice. The silky tannins weave through the wine like fine mesh, allowing the fruit full expression. There’s lots of complexity here, but it’s also a wine that you can enjoy without having to figure out why you should like it.” 94 points, Wine & Spirits
