Sandrone’s 2003 Barolo Cannubi Boschis reveals smoke, tar, licorice and dark plums with superb balance and a vibrant, engaging personality. Made in a sweeter, richer style than Le Vigne, its notable depth and well-integrated tannins make it one of the vintage’s successes. I have a slight preference for Le Vigne over Cannubi Boschis today but both wines are among the finest in this vintage. (AG)
Luciano Sandrone's 2003 Barolo Cannubi Boschis is just beginning to show the early signs of complexity in its bouquet, but it remains surprisingly bright for a wine of its age and the vintage. Dark red and blue fruit, licorice, mint and dried flowers meld together in a striking, gorgeous Barolo. The 2003 has lovely mid-palate pliancy and depth. The slightly firm tannins of the vintage remain, but they are nicely balanced just the same. (AG)
Very deep ruby-red. Very pure but reticent aroma of dark cherry, roast coffee and licorice, with a suggestion of dried fruits. Broad, fat and superrich, but less showy today than Le Vigne. One senses the hot year here (this one has a pH of 3.68, compared to 3.55 for Le Vigne, according to Sandrone). But this huge, classically dry wine gained considerably in sweetness with aeration, finishing with major tannins that dust the teeth and gums. (ST)
Very tight and focused for the vintage, with subtle aromas and flavors of strawberry, mineral and cherry. Full-bodied, chewy and very fresh. (JS)
From a part of the Cannubi cru at 820 feet, this silky and plush '03 becomes more floral with air, a slowly emerging scent of violets and dried roses joining the cherry flavors. It should gain more depth with time in the cellar, then serve it with agnolotti.
Bright crimson. Still quite a deep colour. Rich, sweet and flattering though still dry and punchy on the finish with marked acidity. Not the purest, most classical style but attention grabbing. Showy. But maybe this is the vintage? 18/20 points. (JR)
