      Detailed Description

      The full sun exposure of our historical vineyard Cannubi Boschis gave a 2015 Barolo Aleste characterized by its richness and structure. The warm conditions of midsummer are immediately evident in the nose where black fruits – especially cherries, currants and raspberry – jump from the glass. The fruit is enhanced by mineral and floral notes, especially tea roses, with white truffle and licorice root adding particular aroma.
      The palate is one of balanced fruits and well-defined, muscular structure. The cool fall nights allowed the development of the excellent acidity and ripened the tannins slowly and fully. The finish shows the powerful, ripe tannins which frame and support the fruit. The wine gives great pleasure now but will improve with 4-6 years in bottle.

        Reviews:

        • Wine Advocate: There is more purple and black fruit in the 2015 Barolo Aleste compared to past vintages from Luciano Sandrone and also fewer of those floral accents that characterize the Cannubi Boschis where this fruit comes from. All the same, the bouquet comes off equally as intense and as generous as ever, if not more so. This wine also seems ready from an aromatic point of view, even if it needs some extra time to reverberate in the mouth. It is compact and firm, with good, meaty fruit, and it's refreshingly expansive in scope.
        • Vinous: Sandrone's 2015 Barolo Aleste is a total stunner. Succulent dark cherry, plum, mocha, lavender and spice are all beautifully framed by ripe, silky tannins. Creamy, resonant and super-expressive, the 2015 Aleste hits all the right notes. Next to Le Vigne, Aleste is more typical of what readers might expect from a warm year. It is a gorgeous Barolo from the Sandrone family.
