Luc Sandrone

2015 Luciano Sandrone • Barolo Vite Talin. 97 Points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate. September delivery

You’ll have to wait until 2021 for this release, but it absolutely will reward your patience. What an exceptionally fine creation this is, the 2015 Barolo Vite Talin. It is soft and generous, with great concentration, and the dark fruit shows more fleshiness in the mouth. The tannins have become softer in the 2015 edition. While the 2014 could be described as wild and robust with its spicy, herbal and meaty notes, this Barolo Vite Talin is all about elegance. It is simply beautiful, a feather in any cellar’s cap. A mere 2,200 bottles were made.

99 Points Wine Enthusiast

Camphor, pressed rose, red berries, dried botanical herbs and a whiff of fruitcake are just some of the aromas you’ll find on this drop-dead gorgeous wine. Full-bodied and focused, the compelling palate shows mesmerizing tension, structure and finesse, delivering ripe Marasca cherry, raspberry compote, cinnamon and licorice before a tobacco finish. Noble tannins and fresh acidity provide ample support and balance.

97 Points Wine Spectator

“A dense, muscular red, saturated with plum, cherry, licorice, menthol and iron flavors. The burly tannins gain the upper hand on the finish for now, yet this shows balance and the freshness and structure should develop beautifully. Best from 2025 through 2045.” 20 cases imported. — BS
