    August 18, 2021 - Orange-red color with faint translucence. Cherry and tobacco on the nose. Soft but precise fruit, cherries, tobacco, anise notes. Black cherry notes as it airs. Fine tannins, pronounced but nice acidity, fine balance. Finishes long, smoky and cherry. Very nice. I'm not as optimistic as some on long term aging for this wine, but that depends on what you're looking for. I'd drink these over the next 4 to 5 years.

    May 26, 2021 - Translucent cherry red in color. Aromatic nose of anise and cherry. Delicate yet well defined fruit, cherries, anise, sweet tobacco. Great acidity and balance. Tannins are subtle yet firm. Finishes long and subtle with pepper, cherries and anise. Needs 4 to 5 years to peak and will drink well for years. This really wakes up with food and becomes smooth on the palate.

    March 28, 2021 - Took around 2 hours to come around and resolve itself, but after that an amazing barolo with plenty of life ahead.

    January 9, 2021 - Opened 3 hours in advance. On carafe. This is just beautiful. Light and transparent, no trace of wood in spite of the “modernist” approach. Years to go but extremely good now, lots of light red fruit, soft tannins. This is all about balance, even in a warm vintage like 2009. In my book, Sandrone is á par with the likes of the Mascarello’s and G Rinaldi.

    December 29, 2020 - Une bouteille magnifique, belle couleur sombre, vin fruité, épicé et puissant, tannins encore présents, à garder quelques années.
