Barolo Cannubi Boschis (1.5 L)
Luciano Sandrone’s 2011 Barolo Cannubi Boschis is shaping up to be one of the protagonists of the vintage. I say ‘shaping up’ because the wine is still in a youthful stage and has yet to open up fully. Tight and firm, it shows the potential for enormous depth and dimension with dark fruit, spice, licorice and white truffle. If you taste through Sandrone’s older vintages, it is apparent that they perform exceptionally well in warm years like 2011. It promises a rewarding evolution ahead but I would suggest waiting five more years before popping the cork.
