The full sun exposure of our historical vineyard Cannubi Boschis gave us a 2015 Barolo Aleste characterized by its richness and structure. The warm conditions of midsummer are immediately evident in the nose where black fruits - especially cherries, currants and raspberry - jump from the glass. The fruit is enhanced by mineral and floral notes, especially tea roses, with white truffle and licorice root adding particular aroma. The palate is one of balanced fruits and well-defined, muscular structure. The cool fall nights allowed the development of the excellent acidity and ripened the tannins slowly and fully. The finish shows the powerful, ripe tannins which frame and support the fruit. The wine gives great pleasure now but will improve with 4-6 years in bottle.

Woodland berry, iris, menthol and star anise aromas slowly take shape on this elegantly structured, savory red. Enveloping and delicious, the focused palate delivers raspberry compote, dried black cherry, licorice and cinnamon alongside polished, fine-grained tannins. Fresh acidity lends tension and keeps it balanced. Drink 2020-2030.

There is more purple and black fruit in the 2015 Barolo Aleste compared to past vintages from Luciano Sandrone and also fewer of those floral accents that characterize the Cannubi Boschis where this fruit comes from. All the same, the bouquet comes off equally as intense and as generous as ever, if not more so. This wine also seems ready from an aromatic point of view, even if it needs some extra time to reverberate in the mouth. It is compact and firm, with good, meaty fruit, and it's refreshingly expansive in scope.
