Sandrone Barbera d’Alba 2017 (91 JD)

“Even better, the 2017 Barbera boasts a saturated purple color as well as a ripe, powerful, undeniably sexy bouquet of mulled blueberries, candied violets, orange blossom, and cedary spices. Rich, medium to full-bodied, and opulent on the palate, it still has good overall freshness, ripe yet present tannins, and a great finish. You certainly see the warmer, Mediterranean style of the vintage and this puppy is loaded with character. Drink it any time over the coming 3-5 years.”

    The late Luciano Sandrone was an iconic figure in Barolo, with an extraordinary story of determination. In the bottle, Sandrone’s wines straddle the modern and traditional styles of the region: elegant, attractive and easy to appreciate right from their first years in bottle, but with no less power and structure over time than traditional Barolos.
