Tasting Notes

Matured in oak barrels for 12 months, the Valmaggiore is a deliciously complex wine with a wonderful bouquet of sweet raspberry and blackberry fruits intermingled with notes of violets and roses with hints of sweet tobacco and dried citrus fruits. The palate is vibrant and refreshing with juicy cassis and damson fruits balanced by silky smooth tannins. Made from old vines and sourced from a prestigious cru in the Roero region, which is a perfect terroir for Nebbiolo, this wine has the flavour and style of a fine Barolo. Very elegant and perfectly integrated, it will also age well.

Reviews & Scores

Cherry, licorice and spice flavors match with a chewy texture in this dense red. Shows balance and character, with fine complexity and a long finish.
91 Points, Wine Spectator

White pepper and juicy strawberry fruit. High, sieved tannin and lovely refreshing acid. Sophisticated and authentic in an easy-drinking-for-Nebbiolo way. 
16.5/20 Points, Jancis Robinson

TASTING NOTES

Dried cherries, raspberries, tobacco and crushed flowers rise effortlessly from the glass. Delicate berry-infusions are contained within a tightly packed tannic structure. But the texture is beautifully silken. Freshness and verve are the hallmarks of this appealing vintage and this wonderful Barolo has it in spades.
