Barolo Vite Talin, Sandrone - 2014

  • Provenance: Piedmont
  • Appellation: Barolo

  • Grape variety(ies): Nebbiolo
  • On-call time: 25 years
  • Style of wine: Vin de grand terroir

"The 2014 Barolo Vite Talin is shaping up to be one of the wines of the vintage. A powerful, unctuous wine, it possesses off-the-charts intensity married with striking nuance. Dark red cherry jam, plum, lavender, spice, rose petal and mint are some of the many nuances that flesh out. In 2014, the Vite Talin is a wine of extraordinary finesse, nuance and classicism. It will spend two years in 500-liter barrels and a third year in cask. Tasting the 2014, I can only wonder why the other Barolos don't get the same élevage. I won't be surprised if the 2014 one day surpasses the 2013 - it is every bit that thrilling. Wow!" Vinous : 97/100 ; Falstaff : 98/100 ; Robert Parker : 96/10000

Viticulture

This wine is the result of a meeting between Luciano Sandrone, a young and ambitious winemaker in 1987, and an old local producer, Natale Ronanza, nicknamed "Talin", who agreed to rent him his vineyard in Le Coste di Barolo. It was here that he noticed a nebbiolo plant with a particular character: sparse bunches with smaller berries, deep blue in colour and with a very measured vigour. He then entered an experimental phase, making micro-vinifications that confirmed the quality of the selection. From the end of the 1980s to the beginning of the 1990s, the plant was reproduced by grafting onto its terroir to produce Vite Talin.

Oenology

Pre-fermentation maceration. Native yeasts only. Fermentation in 50 hl barrels. Total maceration of 20 to 25 days, depending on the vintage, with the use of a submerged cap if necessary. The wine is then transferred to French oak demi-muids for malolactic fermentation and ageing with more than 50% new barrels, as the structure of the tannins requires it. Bottled after 3 years of ageing. Kept in bottle for 3 years before release.

Suggestions for accompaniment

Carne cruda - Tajarin with ceps - Grilled suckling pig.

Luciano Sandrone est une star du Barolo. Il doit sa reconnaissance à un sens du vin hors pair, qui le porte à soigner tous les détails qui permettent de produire un grand Barolo. Il a également la chance de travailler en famille avec sa fille Barbara (Direction) et son frère Luca (vignes), aussi passionnés que lui !

En 1978, Luciano Sandrone procède pour la première fois à l’isolation de son Cannubi Boschis (cru de 7 ha connu jadis sous le nom de Monghisolfo et situé dans le prolongement nord-est du Cannubi). Cinq ans plus tard, c’est la consécration pour ce vin qui accède à l’empyrée des cuvées mythiques avec un 100/100 décerné par Robert Parker. Il devient alors culte et connaîtra un succès mondial jamais démenti. Seul changement durant ces dernières années, il est rebaptisé Aleste depuis le millésime 2013, fusionnant ainsi les prénoms des deux enfants de Barbara et donc petits-enfants de Luciano, ALEssia et STEfano.

Petit retour en arrière, en 1990, il sort le premier millésime de son Barolo Le Vigne. Ce dernier n’est pas un autre cru, mais fait référence à la tradition locale qui privilégiait l’assemblage de différents terroirs afin de produire le meilleur vin possible. Il faudra un certain temps pour imposer cette cuvée en terme...
