The 2017 Valmaggiore is all Nebbiolo from the sandier soils near Vezza d’Alba, brought up all in French oak. This medium purple-hued effort offers an impressive nose of red and black fruits, toasted spices, dried flowers, and cedarwood. Beautiful on the palate as well, with medium-bodied richness, it actually reminds me of the 2015, yet maybe with a touch more richness. Balanced, seamless, and already a joy to drink, it should evolve for a solid 8-10 years, although there’s no need to delay gratification.
Must be ordered.

With scorching heat and little rain overall, there was reason for worry during the 2017 growing season at large, but in the Roero zone by the banks of the Tanaro river, the hilly Valmaggiore vineyards received more rain than other parts of Piedmont, so these grapes did not suffer as much. Lovely notes of red rose and some herbal tones appear on the nose of the 2017 Nebbiolo d'Alba Valmaggiore, coupled with balsam, spice and rosemary. It's voluminous in the mouth, and while the Le Vigne Barolo tends to be the most floral and delicately ethereal of Sandrone's release, this bouquet is distinctive in its own way. It would be a nice pair with a mushroom risotto.

The 2017 Nebbiolo d'Alba Valmaggiore is bright, fruity and absolutely delicious. The warm vintage seems to have given the Valmaggiore an extra kick of mid-palate sweetness, which is not a bad thing for a wine that can at times be a bit lean. Sweet red berry fruit and floral notes are nicely pushed forward. The 2017 will benefit from a few years in bottle, which will allow the aromatics to develop, but it is impeccable in its balance and super-classy, even in the early going. regular $49.99nd luscious fruit flavors. This an extrovert wine with plump richness and succulence.
