Luciano Sandrone is one of the most iconic producers in Barolo. Purchasing his first vineyards on the Cannubi Hill in 1977, he made his first vintage in his parents garage. From these humble beginnings he was eventually able to build a winery in 1998. His style is often described as a midway point between the tradition and modernity. Elegant enough to be appreciated in their youth, his wines are also built for extended ageing in the cellar.
This how the winery describes the Dolcetto – “Our eleven Dolcetto vineyard parcels are situated on the highest hills of Barolo: they have “white soils” of a high limestone content, with challenging slopes and altitudes often exceeding 350-400 meters above sea level. Year after year we work these vineyards with passion and finally harvest their perfectly ripened grapes in the middle of September. After separate vinifications of each parcel, we select the best lots to create an “assemblaggio” wine: assembled according to the Langa tradition. This bottle embodies quality and holds a young and fragrant wine that is equally enjoyable on the daily table and as at a party.
