Quick Overview

50+ harvests, 40 years of wine making, 3 varietals: Nebbiolo, Barbera and Dolcetto. 2 territories together as Langa and Roero tell the story of Sandrone's 6 red wines, which are expressions of its intuitions, careful observations and continuous thinking. Sandrone has always been driven by a single overriding and thriving ambition: to discover new nuances in each harvest. Each grape gathering has its own harmony, and each wine a story in itself.


VALMAGGIORE Nebbiolo d’Alba: A heroic interpretation of Nebbiolo
The amphitheater. In the Roero zone, in the town of Vezza d'Alba, on the left bank of the river Tanaro, the concave Valmaggiore hill is one of the best historic examples of origin and quality. Already in the nineteenth century, the Nebbiolo grapes grown in this vineyard were so highly regarded that they dictated the price for the entire territory. In the 1990s, the first sight of Valmaggiore was like a bolt of lightning for Luciano and Luca: they fell in love at first sight. This was not only for the history and the long viticultural tradition, but also for the particular uniqueness of those sandy soils combined with the microclimate.

Tasting notes
The 2019 Valmaggiore Nebbiolo d’Alba is on the side of more structured examples of this bottling, yet shows potential for approachability with a few years of patience.

Red cherry and raspberry perfumes mix with rose petal and licorice, framed by a hint of pepper. On the palate, it is mid-weight and nicely structured with red cherry and blackberry fruit.

It shows great sweetness in the mouth, but is never cloying - it is a wine that speaks softly yet forcefully.
The tannins are long, ripe and very structured but delicately framed, and its long, dry finish ends with a mineral note.
