Four Times 2018 Nebbiolo d´Alba Vigna Valmaggiore


An interesting tasting  of four different versions from the amphitheater-like vineyard of Valmaggiore.

2018 Nebbiolo d´Alba Vigna Valmaggiore, Bruno Giacosa
A high, handsome nose with notes of red cherries, rosehips, linseed oil and fresh herbs. Very, very fine.
The taste is pure and complex with notes of red cherries, dried raspberries, tiles and minerals. Very fresh. Some silky tannins in the finish. 3+ years.
92p   (tasted 2021/04)



2018 Nebbiolo d´Alba Vigna Valmaggiore, Luciano Sandrone
A finely tuned nose with notes of sour/sweet cherries, licorice, white pepper and some tobacco. Very deep and fine.
The taste is racy and elegant with notes of ripe red cherries, earth, dried strawberries and sweet minerals. Very fine. Juicy tannins in the finish. 4+ years.

2018 Nebbiolo d´Alba Vigna Valmaggiore, Marengo
A open, warm nose with notes of hard cherry candy, asphalt, forest floor and hints of tobacco. Deep and fine.

2018 Nebbiolo d´Alba Vigna Valmaggiore, Giacomo Grimaldi
The nose is somewhat closed, even with air, with notes of dry cherries, gravel, dried flowers and licorice. Very good.
The taste is tight and fine, more open than on the nose, with notes of violet licorice, cold coffee, tobacco and gravel. Long and fine. Better on the palate. 3+ years.
88p   (tasted 2021/04)
