Sandrone Aleste Barolo 2013
97 RP | 97

x close Formerly known as Barolo Cannubi Boschis (the last vintage by that name was 2012), the 2013 Barolo Aleste has been renamed to honor the youngest generation of the Sandrone family, Alessia and Stefano. The wine name Aleste takes the first three letters from each grandchild's name. The move represents the culmination of more than 50 harvests completed by this legendary winemaker and his desire to pass on the torch. His grandchildren are at different points in their respective viticulture and enology university studies. Now under a different name, the wine obviously shows the same delicate floral nuances that you get with this wine (fruit from Cannubi is always harvested first). This is a complete and exciting wine with delicate notes of wild berry and smoke backed by licorice and blue flower.

This is the first relese of 'Aleste', which is still 100% Canubi Boschis (renamed by Luciano in tribure to his grandchildren, Alessia and Stefano). 

ALESTE 2013 is the result of a classic year

Its aromatic complexity is expressed at every turn of the glass. The aromatic hints of Asian spices, oak and black fruits are simply captivating. As is typical for cooler vintages, there are significant floral tones of rose petals and hibiscus. These are supplemented by aromas of cigar, cedar, black licorice and white ground pepper.

On the palate, the sense of volume is palpable, dominated by dark sweet cherries and black raspberries. This is a wine that delights all the senses. There is indeed a vibrancy, which gives personality to this wine, and the freshness of the acidity balances the opulent tannins.

ALESTE Barolo 2013 will be a particularly long-lived wine that needs patience. Its present structure makes this wine complete, but still very young: it will reach its optimal drinking period in 12 – 15 years.
