SANDRONE-CANNUBI BOSCHIS BAROLO 2012

DESCRIPTION: The 2012 Barolo Cannubi Boschis is a solid and tighter wine compared to the 2012 Le Vigne. Having said that, it veers close to being too austere and hard-bodied, especially at this young stage of its life. Of Sandrone's two new Barolo releases, this wine definitely needs more time to evolve and soften with extra years of bottle aging. The tannins are more evident and the wine's firm backbone acts to support dark fruit flavors with distant accents of spice, licorice and tobacco.. WA

POINTS: 94-WA, 94-V, 94-WS, 94-WE

FROM 2013 VINTAGE ONWARD THE SANDRONE BAROLO CANNUBI BOSCHIS WILL BE CALLED BAROLO ALESTE.--WA
