Sandrone Dolcetto d’Alba 2018 (90 WA)
“The Luciano Sandrone 2018 Dolcetto d’Alba has fleshed out over the past 12 months. It offers a generous disposition with blackberry, plum and dried cherry. This vintage has produced tight and streamlined results overall, but the fruit wraps over the palate in rich, pleasurable layers. The blend of fruit used here comes from Monforte d’Alba (Pe Mol and Castelletto), Novello (Ravera and Rocche di San Nicola) and Barolo (Rivassi).”
Sandrone Dolcetto d’Alba 2018
Sandrone’s Dolcetto d’Alba is produced using Dolcetto grapes from 11 different vineyards, all within the Barolo DOCG. Sandrone’s Dolcetto sees no time in wood and is a remarkably robust and complex example of the variety.
Luciano Sandrone is one of the most iconic producers in Barolo, and his story is an extraordinary one. 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.
