The 2019 Valmaggiore Nebbiolo d'Alba is on the side of more structured examples of this bottling, yet shows potential for approachability with a few years of patience. Red cherry and raspberry perfumes mix with rose petal and licorice, framed by a hint of pepper. On the palate, it is mid-weight and nicely structured with red cherry and blackberry fruit. It shows great sweetness in the mouth but is never cloying - it is a wine that speaks softly yet forcefully. The tannins are long, ripe and very structured but delicately framed, and its long, dry finish ends with a mineral note.

The 2019 Nebbiolo d'Alba Valmaggiore is a bright, sculpted wine that is going to need a few years to come into its own. Bright acids and firm tannins are a bit present today, so a few years of cellaring are a must. The Sandrone Valmaggiore has a track record of aging well. I expect that will be the case here as well.

The Luciano Sandrone 2019 Nebbiolo d'Alba Valmaggiore is a beautiful expression of this mighty red grape from the north of Italy. The Valmaggiore vineyard in Roero offers a spicy and accessible interpretation with plenty of wild cherry and blue flower. This vintage also offers pretty layer of crushed white peppercorn. You get terrific complexity and a very food-friendly ensemble at a competitive price.

Cherry, strawberry, raspberry and earth flavors highlight this intense red. There is a beam of fruit backed by a spine of dense tannins. Nice, lingering finish. Best from 2023 through 2030. 300 cases imported.
