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.

Written Notes

Sandrone Barolo Cannubi Boschis 2000 is a great wine but in a very, maybe too modern style. Sweet in it’s fruit, sweet in the tannins, sweet in the use of new oak. California from the Langhe. Undeniable very well made, but hardly tasting like a Nebbiolo or Barolo.
