Luciano Sandrone, Nebbiolo d'Alba Valmaggiore 2013


This is a beautiful, delicate Nebbiolo from Roero. A cool, long vintage, wines from 2013 tend towards delicate fruit. In this case, lovely cherry and strawberry are most prominent. There is a great length and lovely smooth tannins.

Luciano Sandrone is a wonderful producer, who has built his business from nothing in the last 40 years. Starting as a cellar hand, he saved up enough to buy his first vineyard... and the rest, shall we say, is history!

Jancis Robinson gives this 17/20:

"Just mid ruby with orange tinges. Deep, almost rich nose of wild strawberry with a hint of oak. Lovely suppleness and freshness with a fine tannic structure. Delicious and refreshing."
