(You save )
Tasting Notes

An absolutely superb Valmaggiore that is drinking beautifully. It’s starting to show some deliciously complex secondary characters such as tobacco, leather, spice on both the nose and palate while, in the mouth, it is fine, cool and long and with the kind of finesse we expect from top Burgundy! - Importers Notes


"As you should expect, the 2012 Nebbiolo d'Alba Valmaggiore Sibi et Pauci is now showing beautifully aged tertiary aromas of powdered licorice, campfire ash and balsam herb that accompany a core of dark, ripe fruit. Those fruit nuances include tangy accents of dried apricot and candied orange peel. That salty, mineral-like signature of the Valmaggiore cru is elegantly on display. This was a warm vintage, and heat in May was sustained comfortably by the vines, thanks to generous water reserves underground. The wine's appearance is well maintained, showing ruby highlights with hints of amber.” - 93 Points Monica Larner
