Barolo Aleste 2017
Balsamic aromas and flavors of mint, eucalyptus and sage dominate the cherry and berry notes in this linear red. There is a contradiction and tension now between its graceful entry and dense, muscular finish. Nonetheless, this is long and finds an equilibrium in the end. Drink now through 2043. 150 cases imported.
The story of Luciano Sandrone begins in 1977 when the opportunity arose to buy a vineyard in Cannubi, in the heart of Barolo. Luciano had no doubts: this was his great opportunity. With the first harvest of 1978 the first results proved him right. Barolo is certainly the spearhead of the company’s production, but there is no shortage of other renowned and local wines such as Valmaggiore.
