Tight wild berry fruit on the nose shows off a bit of earthiness with fine dried herb notes and  soft toasty oak adding detail. Fresh, angular tannins pop on entry followed  by  lovely tiny cherry fruit, roses, pomegranate, and a little purple fruit on the palate. This shows silky integration with aromatic fruit on the moderately long finish. This is tense and precise with good aromatic freshness, 92pts

cola, lots of subtle wood tones, shallow, something vaguely Nebbiolo like, matte, flat, nice tannin texture, rich but amorphous, extracted flavors, decent texture, soft, extracted finish, no detail.

AWE blind tasting - sweet oaked nose, coffee candy and smoke, some ham, lingonberry and mint, sweet oakiness right up front yields to a dilute mid-palate with nice flavors but really low key, but why? 83-84

Nice components. Concentrated red fruit, meat. But tannins are stiff and acid a little harsh. I would hold on this.

[Gotham. Tuna] Even better than the first time. licorice, smoke, and spice on the nose; after an hour the big black friut came out. Great now or will improve c 3-5 yrs.

[Gotham. Lamb] Cranberry colored; berries on the nose; medium-bodied, huge tannins at the start which softened over time. After about an hour, opened up with licorice and cedar; later some light berries appears. A very nice wine.

[WT] Decanted for an 1 hour. Big fruit and acid. Plum, berries, and wood. Developed signficant VA over the night into the next morning. Nice QPR.

Initially closed and tannic.. . dissappoint. Improved a little over the first day. But opend after ~12 hours with rose pedals, licorice, and minerals. Would decant for >5 hours before drinking.

Great showing. Big structure wine with 10-15 years more of like. High acid and lots of red fruit. compares with wines at 2x the price. Over time acid developed out of proportion to the rest of the wine. Even the next day the wine held together well

The 2010 Nebbiolo d'Alba Valmaggiore is surprisingly shut down today. The Valmaggiore is often open and accessible when young, but that is far from the case with the 2010. Firm yet well-integrated tannins frame red cherries, sweet herbs, menthol and ... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

The 2009 Barolo Le Vigne shows class and pedigree with bright fruit tones carefully wrapped within the wine’s elegant texture. The purity and the intensity of the wine are exceptional, especially when compared to other Barolos from this vintage. The bouquet is polished and long, with pristine accents of spice, licorice and anise seed. Made with fruit sourced from various parcels, this wine speaks with a strong and confident tone. Anticipated maturity: 2015–2028.

Coffee, licorice, tar and spice flavors mingle in this rich, firmly structured red. A bit reticent, with a sweet core and dense, dusty tannins on the finish. Best from 2017 through 2030.

The 2008 Nebbiolo d'Alba Valmaggiore is the product of a challenging harvest. A soft, mid-weight wine, the Valmaggiore flows with the essence of dried fruit, flowers, sweet herbs and spices.

Good deep, bright red. Sexy, carnal aromas of crushed raspberry, rose petal and sexy oak lifted by a note of rose petal. Vibrant, tight and firmly built, with lively acids giving lift and definition to the flavors of crushed red fruits, flowers and leather. Not yet delivering the texture promised by the nose but this very long, solidly tannins Barolo is an infant today.

Winemaker's Notes:

As is to be expected the 2004 Nebbiolo d'Alba Valmaggiore is noticeably fresherand more vibrant in its aromas as well as flavors. It is a beautifullydelineated effort, bursting with sweet fruit, tar mineral, spices and well-integrated oak, displaying outstanding depth and fine overall balance. Thislovely Nebbiolo shows just how compelling the wines from Roero can be, and mayvery well be Sandrone's finest effort from these vines in Vezza d'Alba.Highly recommended. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2016 (A. Galloni -Wine Advocate -Apr 07)
