Sandrone’s 1989 Barolo Cannubi Boschis is phenomenal. I have had the privilege of drinking this Barolo several times over the last year, and have never been anything less than deeply impressed. The 1989 Cannubi Boschis is gorgeous in so many ways, but one of the things I find fascinating about the wine is the way it captures a stylistic middle ground, with a modern approach to viticulture combined with elements of traditional winemaking. This deeply layered, sensual Barolo opens with captivating aromatics that meld into expressive fruit that continues to blossom on the palate in a stunning display of class and elegance. Sweet, silky tannins frame the fruit through to the long, exceptionally pure finish. The flavor profile is quite classic, with plenty of tar, licorice, plums, prunes, dried cherries and smoke, but very little if any perceptible French oak. This is a towering masterpiece from Luciano Sandrone. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2020. Feb 2010, www.robertparker.com
