Other Reviews....
The 2012 Barolo Cannubi Boschis is exquisite. Soft and silky (for a still-youthful Barolo), the 2012 is positively stellar. Ripe dark cherry, plum, spice, leather, menthol and licorice build effortlessly with a bit of time in the glass. The 2012 is not a profound wine, but it is exceptionally beautiful and also a fabulous choice for drinking now and over the next 15-20 years. Drink: 2022-2037.

Antonio Galloni - Vinous

Shows firm tannins and pretty structure for the vintage. Tight and precise with super polished tannins and a lovely center palate of ripe fruit and earthy undertones. Very, very refined. Classy. Better in 2019.

The 2012 Barolo Cannubi Boschis is a solid and tighter wine compared to the 2012 Le Vigne. Having said that, it veers close to being too austere and hard-bodied, especially at this young stage of its life. Of Sandrone's two new Barolo releases, this wine definitely needs more time to evolve and soften with extra years of bottle aging. The tannins are more evident and the wine's firm backbone acts to support dark fruit flavors with distant accents of spice, licorice and tobacco. Drink: 2018-2030.

Monica Larner - Wine Advocate

With a core of cherry flavors and assertive tannins, this Barolo is right out of central casting. Accents of mint, tar, tobacco and tea add dimension. The finish is linear and firm. Fine acidity keeps this focused and long. Best from 2020 through 2035.
