Luciano Sandrone 'Cannubi Boschis - Sibi et Paucis' Barolo
“Each year, we have chosen to put aside a small part of our production of the wines based in Nebbiolo - a few bottles of Cannubi Boschis, Le Vigne and Valmaggiore. To these we dedicate a longer ageing: 10 years past the vintage for the Barolo and 6 years for the Valmaggiore. We hold these in our wine library, where they are held in perfect conditions for resting, refining and the slow march toward maturity. Our seal on the labels identifies these specific bottles and their path which began under the ground in our cellars. sibi et paucis represents the passing of the days, the art of waiting and the pleasure of the past made present: an intuition that reflects the cycles of humanity and of wine. Everything flows. Patience is fluid and harmonious; its result transforms and arrives in new forms.” Winery notes
“The 2008 Barolo Cannubi Boschis is stunningly beautiful. It, too, is quite subtle and understated. The 2008 is a gorgeous, mid-weight wine laced with sweet red cherries, flowers, spices, mint and minerals. This is a decidedly feminine, gracious Cannubi Boschis that impresses for its elegance, class and finesse. Sweet floral notes add brightness on the Pinot-like, vibrant finish. The wine keeps getting better and better in the glass. This, too, is a dazzling effort. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2028.” 95 points, Antonio Galloni, Wine Advocate
“Good bright ruby-red. Deeper but less forthcoming on the nose than Le Vigne, hinting at black cherry, menthol and flowers. Then broader and deeper on the palate, conveying a more classically dry impression than the wonderfully sweet, round 2007. As creamy as this is, it's dominated today by its impression of energy and medicinal black cherry reserve. Most impressive right now on the tightly coiled, rising, electric finish, which unfurls spectacularly as the wine sits in the glass. A great expression of Cannubi terroir.” 95+ points (ST) Stephen Tanzer
“This nose is divine. Aromas of perfumes, roses and ripe fruit. Full body, with fine tannins and a dark chocolate finish. Tight and very, very pretty. Needs to loosen up a bit with about three to four years of bottle age.” 94 points, James Suckling
