Sandrone's 2006 Barolo Le Vigne possesses awesome balance as intricately woven layers of aromas and flavors come together in the glass. The 2006 is an especially powerful Le Vigne boasting a solid core of floral red fruits supported by firm yet elegant tannins. This too shows the considerable drive and focus that is the hallmark of the vintage. The wine's overall balance is impeccable. Le Vigne is made from parcels in Vignane (Barolo) Conterni and Ceretta (Monforte) and Merli (Novello). The wines are aged separately for a year in 500-liter barrels. The final blend is assembled after which the wine spends an additional year in oak prior to being bottled. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2026. -Antonio Galloni

Le Vigne is an evolved and elegant wine with dark fruit backed by smoke spice and toasted nut. It's a full ripe plump and linear wine with a dense succulent close and sophisticated accents of mineral and cola on the long long finish. Overall this Barolo is beautiful and special. M.L.

Love the nose on this which delivers lots of perfumes of dried dark fruits and minerals. Full and very well-integrated with super silky tannins and a long finish. Better than 2005. Still needs some time check back after 2014.

Wilder aromas of blueberry camphor and brown spices. Much more strict on the palate than the Cannubi Boschis with the camphor and brown spice elements currently holding the upper hand over primary fruit. Less silky and more masculine in texture. Finishes chewy firm and long with serious tannins currently cutting off the fruit. 92(+?) points
