2015 Luciano Sandrone Barolo Vite Talin
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. Drink 2024 - 2050.
Monica Larner - Wine Advocate (Jun 2019)
The 2015 Barolo Vite Talin has really shut down since I tasted it last year, which is probably a very good thing for its long-term prospects. Radiant and lush on the palate, the 2015 marries fruit intensity with structure to great effect. Far from an easygoing Barolo, the 2015 is going to need the better part of a decade to be at its best and most expressive; but still, the 2015 is super impressive today. Drink 2023 - 2040.
Antonio Galloni - Vinous
Complex aromas of dried strawberries, iron, mushrooms and dried flowers follow through to a full yet very tight and reserved body with racy, firm tannins that are energetic. Still needs time to soften. Try after 2024.
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.
Bruce Sanderson - Wine Spectator
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. Drink 2023–2045.
