Sandrone Valmaggiore Nebbiolo d'Alba 2020
The calling card of Valmaggiore is the haunting Nebbiolo aromas, and this vintage is a textbook example of the Roero's potential. Aromas and flavors of sour dark cherries, wild strawberries, pomegranate seeds and currant waft from the glass, with impeccable balance and harmony on the palate. This wine is delicate, mid-bodied and elegant, with great harmony between the fruit, mineral and acid components. The finish has ripe tannins and excellent length This is a generous, open and sweet expression of the Valmaggiore. The finish is balanced and ripe, ending with a distinct mineral note.
This wine gives us a first taste of 2020 Nebbiolo fruit. The 2020 Nebbiolo d'Alba Valmaggiore has some extra spice, blood orange and cola from the hot vintage. It ends with dusty smoothness and sweet, earthy sensations. - 92pts Robert Parker
