Barbera d'Alba, Sandrone - 2021

Produced by a living legend, this ambitious Barbera has a nose that is characteristic of the local terroir and grape variety, i.e. fresh, liquorice, with discreet and integrated breeding, very stylish. The wine is juicy, sunny and explosive on the palate, with the opulence of the year but without overflowing or being unbalanced. Served at 15° with a beautiful autumn or winter cuisine, it will be a hit! Wine Enthusiast : 93/100 ; James Suckling : 91/100 ; Vinous : 90/100 ; James Suckling : 91/100 ; Falstaff : 92/100

Five years later, this wine was consecrated and entered the empyrean of mythical vintages with a 100/100 from Robert Parker. It then became a cult wine and enjoyed uninterrupted worldwide success. The only change in recent years is that it has been renamed Aleste since the 2013 vintage, thus merging the first names of Barbara's two children and therefore Luciano's grandchildren, ALEssia and STEfano.Back in 1990, he released the first vintage of his Barolo Le Vigne. The latter is not another vintage, but refers to the local tradition of blending different terroirs to produce the best possible wine.
