Luciano Sandrone Nebbiolo Nebbiolo d'Alba Valmaggiore 2008
From the climatic point of view, 2008 took us back to the Seventies with very rainy spring and summer which made the management of the vineyards decidedly difficult. Only thanks to the generous months of August, September and October the grapes were able to complete the ripening process in the best manner. The vintage 2008 undoubtedly rewarded the zones best suited to the cultivation of vines, and particularly those who invested in meticulous vine cultivation operations just at the right time.
RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.
Editorial Reviews for Luciano Sandrone Nebbiolo Nebbiolo d'Alba Valmaggiore
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

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.

Candied cherry and milk chocolate mark this round, creamy red. This is well-structured, with some astringent tannins capping the finish. Should come around soon. Drink now through 2016. 500 cases imported. -BS Wine Spectator. A Nebbiolo wine from Piedmont in Italy. 2008 Luciano Sandrone Nebbiolo Valmaggiore 750ml
A blend of four estate vineyards — Ceretta, Conterni (both Monforte d’Alba), Merli (Novello) and Vignane (Barolo) — this is an astonishing 2008. It has the kind of tannic precision and detail that parallels the cool earth on a freshly dug truffle. The wine is youthfully compressed all the way through, a bright, savory sphere of flavor that forms a complex Barolo. All it requires is age.
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... Stephen Tanzers IWC. A Nebbiolo wine from Piedmont in Italy. 2008 Luciano Sandrone Barolo le Vigne 750ml
A rich, muscular structure cradles the cherry and strawberry fruit in this intense red. Tar and spice flavors add complexity as this turns tannic and impenetrable on the finish, with an undercurrent of racy acidity. Best from 2017 through 2038.
