Robust, yet light and floral, with the complexity to satisfy an IPA lover.
Nebbiolo d’Alba Valmaggiore shows the variation that Nebbiolo can achieve across a geographical difference of only 25 kilometers. Nebbiolo for the Roero region (the site of Valmaggiore) tend to lighter structure and ripe, smooth tannins that are not unlike those of Pinot Noir. The wine drinks well from about age 6 to 12 but will easily last longer in the best vintages. This is not a “baby Barolo” or a second wine at all – it is a distinct interpretation of a completely different geographic winemaking zone. The wine shows delicious floral elements and red fruits, wrapped around a medium-weight structure with a long, delicious finish and modulated, ripe tannins.
