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.


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 is a Barolo star. He owes his recognition to an unparalleled sense of wine, which leads him to pay attention to all the details that make a great Barolo. In 1978, Luciano Sandrone isolated his Cannubi Boschis (a 7 hectare vineyard formerly known as Monghisolfo and located in the north-eastern extension of Cannubi) for the first time. 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. It will take some time to establish this wine in terms of image, especially as the first four vintages were sold only in the USA. So it only started to be known here in 1995. In the last few vintages, it has become the new spearhead of the estate, joining the pantheon of the appellation and benefiting from the entry into the blend of major crus: Cerretta and...
