Barolo "Vite Talin" 2013 - Sandrone
It required 25 years of experiments, tests and critical evaluations. In 2019 the first bottle of Barolo Vite Talin 2013 vintage will emerge from the Sandrone winery after 6 years of evolution and refinement. This wine was born and destined to be the one as imagined by Luciano.
Vite" is the Italian word for vine and it has given in honour of the singular and unique plant. "Talin" to celebrate the elderly owner of the vineyard, the same Talin who believed in the ability, patience and humble winemaking skills of the young Luciano.
The wine is vinified in a large open-topped wooden vat, then matured two years in tonneaux of French oak followed by a year in large casks before being held in bottle for an additional 3 years. Vite Talin is a precious, rich wine, suited to long cellaring, with an intense and impeccable garnet-red colour, of varied and full aromatics which at the moment are predominantly floral and fruity, and with hints of emerging spice notes. The wine is structured and powerful with significant tannins, which promise great potential for long cellaring.
The label also highlights the specific and unique character of Vite Talin: a wine in which the grape's unique character is more intense than the terroir.
