2009 Luciano Sandrone Barolo Cannubi Boschis Sibi et Paucis
The 2009 Barolo Cannubi Boschis Sibi et Paucis starts off with minerality and tightness, and then within just a few moments in the glass it becomes more robust and generous, opening quickly with each successive sip. Dark black fruit begins to appear, and then some of the minty notes that Cannubi Boschis vines tend to offer, as well as hints of rubbed rosemary. Also, the wine covers the whole mouth very nicely. This is going to be a rare find at just 900 bottles set apart for this late release, which is about 10% of production on the whole. This is a special Barolo, definitely a keeper.
Monica Larner - Wine Advocate (June 2019)
Sandrone's 2009 Barolo Cannubi Boschis is ample and generous on the palate, with terrific textural breadth and lovely resonance. Dark cherry, plum, mocha, smoke, licorice, spice and menthol build in the glass. A swath of underlying tannin shapes the wine nicely. At nearly ten years of age, the 2009 is entering the first part of its prime drinking window.
Antonio Galloni - Vinous (Feb 2019)
Plenty of undergrowth, vanilla and tobacco to this, in addition to herbs and dark brambleberries. Full body, ripe and chewy tannins and a round, resolute finish.
