The Sandrone winery was founded in the late '70s, in 1978 to be exact, and was founded by the Sandrone family with the aim of producing wines that could translate in the bottle the best expression of the Nebbiolo grape, raised in the fabulous and the only terroir of the Piedmont Langhe.
Luciano Sandrone is a name of excellence in the world of Barolo, as well as a synonym of internationally recognized quality. Together with his daughter Barbara and his brother Luca, winemaker of the winery flanked by Luciano himself, he continues to produce wines with an unmistakable style, inaugurated by the legendary harvest of 1978 that brought him to the limelight in Vinitaly in 1981.
The charming cellar is located at the foot of the Barolo and is equipped with photovoltaic panels, a small gesture that can make you understand how the Sandrone family is attentive to the environment and the preservation of the territory. In the vineyards of the Langhe of Luciano Sandrone, reared with the Guyot system, not weedgred and obviously dominated by Nebbiolo grapes, the yields always keep to very low levels, while the cultivation follows the biological dictates, but without official certifications. Among its 27 hectares we find historical cru, like the Cannubi Boschis, only two hectares of 35-year-old vineyard positioned on calcareous and clayey soils, or the Vignane, where they come to light among the most famous and desired Barolo of Luciano.
The peculiarity of the whole range of Sandrone is the marked territoriality of its wines, produced with the use of only indigenous yeasts, most of which are refined in French oak tonneaux and with macerations that are established over the two weeks. The consistency in the quality of each bottle is commendable and not only in those of Barolo: in fact, also interesting are the Barbera and Dolcetto d'Alba. The Sandrone style is unique, innovative, refined and with a fruity invoice: it is impossible not to make a stop in its taste.
