The Story

Since the first beginning of his story, Luciano Sandrone has always had a clear philosophy of quality in mind, which has always been fully shared with his wife Mariuccia, his brother Luca and his daughter Barbara. Year after year this  philosophy has been refined. Please click on the images to learn more.

An iconic wine. From the very first bottling in 1985, Luciano always believed in the unique and distinctive potential of the Cannubi hill, and that he wanted to express this potential by way of a separate vinification. This bottling pays homage to the richness and elegance of the favored Cannubi site in the heart of the Barolo. The optimal soil and climate conditions, harvest after harvest, have brought forth a wine that has drawn international attention since its first release.

Barolo Cannubi Boschis – Luciano Sandrone



The story of Luciano Sandrone can be told in a few words. Having realised the American dream, he built his truly exceptional vineyard from scratch, spending the first 17 years producing his wines in ascetic conditions: the "garage" of his city home. Sandrone is considered one of Barolo's first "modernists". He paints a vivid picture:
–In the 1970s Barolo was a very different place than it is now. There was almost zero interest in the region - not here in Italy or abroad. Barolo wines were difficult. No one understood that the ripeness of grapes and smaller crop yields were important factors. Impurities were a problem. I come from the village of La Morra in Barolo, but my parents weren’t in the wine business. I wanted to be a winemaker since I can remember, and still hold true to my vision of realising the full potential of Nebbiolo and Barolo. I worked as a winemaker for other producers until 1990, when my own garage wine stores had grown to such proportions that I dared to take the plunge and start my own wine operation.”

Barolo Cannubi Boschis is the company's only Barolo “cru” produced from grapes grown exclusively in a Langa vineyard and first released for sale in 1985. It is made from Nebbiolo grapes cultivated in a single sub zone situated in the borough of Barolo.
Few Langa vineyards are able to generate a wine with constant character and expression every year, regardless of the seasonal progress. Luciano chose the Cannubi Boschis vineyard to be vinified separately, and this has taken place every year since 1985. This choice led to the attribution to our family of the title of “innovators”, bringing the concept of the “cru” to the Langa district. It is thanks to the quality of this hill, situated in the middle of the Barolo zone, that our Cannubi Boschis continues to live up to expectations year after year.
