Barolo Le Vigne is often a dark and impenetrable wine in its youth, where the tannins and structure from the Monforte vineyard sites make the wine less approachable. With proper cellaring, this wine reveals more classic Barolo aspects of black cherries, tar, violets and roses. This wine can outlive the Cannubi Boschis bottling in great years: Le Vigne shows more tannins than its brother and possesses amazing freshness and length.
"Sandrone has been performing at a superstar level since the 1982 vintage, but in 1993 he has significantly more competition from - his best friends. Nevertheless, his 1993s are near the top of the qualitative pyramid for the 1993 vintage. More precocious and exotic than the Barolo Cannubi, Sandrone's 1993 Barolo Le Vigne is a blend of five separate parcels. It boasts a dark ruby color, a Pomerol-like sweet, chocolatey, coffee, and jammy black-cherry-scented nose, medium to full body, a lush, soft texture, and a heady, rich finish."
