Luciano Sandrone Nebbiolo Valmaggiore 2010,  (WA92) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Luciano Sandrone Nebbiolo Valmaggiore

Vintage: 2010
Region: Italy

Staff Notes:
Connie Wilson, bookkeeper says: I’m partial to wines from the Piemonte region of Italy, as my great-grandparents emigrated from there to Napa Valley in 1906. They chose to settle in St. Helena as it reminded them, and so many other Northern Italian immigrants, of their distant homeland. Piemonte is a beautiful, peaceful land of majestic Alps, rolling hills of vineyards, wheat and hazelnut trees, and the mighty Po River. It is here that legendary vintner Luciano Sandrone crafts his majestic wines from the Nebbiolo grape. The 2010 Luciano Sandrone Nebbiolo d’Alba is grown on a steep, sandy hillside in the Roero, which is a wilder and less developed place than Barolo. All vineyard work is done by hand due to the steepness of the site, and the uniqueness of this terroir produces an incredible Nebbiolo. Given 92 points by Antonio Galloni of the Wine Advocate, at an amazing price of $29.00, you MUST sample some of this magic by one of Piemonte’s greatest wine producers!


WA92
Rated 92 points by Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `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 spices in this surprisingly large-scaled, broad Valmaggiore. Layers of fruit continue to build to the vibrant, layered finish. Readers will have to be patient here. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2022.` -- Antonio Galloni in the 11/1/2012 issue of the Wine Advocate
