Luciano Sandrone Barolo le Vigne 2005, 1.5L (WA94, ST94, WS92) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Luciano Sandrone Barolo le Vigne

1.5L

Vintage: 2005
Region: Italy
Appellation: Barolo

WA94, ST94, WS92
Rated 94 points by Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `The 2005 Barolo Le Vigne opens with fresh, high-toned aromas that meld into a core of perfumed red fruits. There is notable vibrancy to the fruit, and although the 2005 is a relatively small-scaled vintage for this wine, the balance is exceptional. The Le Vigne has more than enough fruit to follow through all the way to the close, where notes of raspberry jam offer a final burst of intensity. Le Vigne is made from a number of parcels in Vignane (Barolo), Conterni and Ceretta (Monforte) and Merli (Novello). In 2005 the harvest took place in the first two weeks of October. The wines were vinified separately, then racked into 500-liter barrels. The final blend was assembled in the summer of 2006. Every year I taste through the various parcels separately and every year I am amazed by the way the final blend transcends the quality of the individual wines. Simply put, Le Vigne is a gem of a wine from Luciano Sandrone. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2021.` -- Antonio Galloni in The Wine Advocate Issue #182More Information on this producer from The Wine Advocate:`A visit with Luciano Sandrone is always a highlight of my tastings in Piedmont. As usual, I spent quite a bit of time tasting through the 2006s, 2007s, and 2008s, and I am happy to report that Sandrone has a number of exciting wines in the cellar at this stage. Even though Sandrone is one of the earliest producers to bottle his Barolos, the 2005s have only recently begun to show their true potential.`
