The New York Times had a little piece on October 28th featuring the 2007 Barolos - they are very attractive and impressive as the article points out, and Sandrone’s spectacular Barolo Le Vigne 2007 is featured. You can see the full piece here, and highlights below.
“Wines from the 2007 vintage, tasted during a visit to Piedmont this month, are rich, fruity and often impressive. Some producers acknowledge that the jury is out on whether these wines will age in classic fashion, but they have the advantage of being approachable for relatively early drinking. Those with patience and cellar space to spare may want to opt for the more classic, highly structured 2006s.
2007 Barolo Le Vigne, Luciano Sandrone. A big, bold, velvety wine that wraps ripe fruit and deftly applied oak around a luxurious structure.”
