Tasting Notes and Scores

Wine Advocate

The 1999 is easily one of the best wines in the series. It offers rich sensations of spices, flowers, toasted oak and minerals along with well-delineated layers of ripe dark fruit, menthol, and eucalyptus flavors, finishing with exceptional structure, length and freshness. I didn’t taste the superb 1989 (see above) at age six, but when I tasted this 1999 on a later occasion, the first thing that came into my mind was a young version of that wine. The 1999 will require at least a few years of bottle age and will start to be at its best around 2009, after which it should last another decade. 95+ points/drink after 2009. (Antonio Galloni)

Wine Spectator

Beautiful and complex nose of berry and flowers, offering notes of meat and dried spices. Full-bodied, with soft, silky tannins and a long, rich finish.—'99 Piedmont blind retrospective (2009). Drink now. 1,080 cases made. (James Suckling)

Antonio Galloni

Sandrone's 1999 Barolo Cannubi Boschis has become much more delicate over the last few years. Still fresh and vibrant, the 1999 impresses for its total sense of harmony. The tannins are now starting to melt away, allowing the fruit to be fully expressive. Violets, lavender and blue/purplish fruit grace the finish. There is a lot to like here.
