Nebbiolo d'Alba Valmaggiore 2016 is a noble wine, exemplified by its natural elegance and complex character.
Appearance: It has a ruby color that shows the first garnet reflections.
Aromas: Full and complex. Fragrant notes recall iris and aromatic herbs, then wild strawberry, pomegranate and candied raspberry. This is followed by evolved, complex fruit structure with red fruit jam and dried apricot, followed by spicy notes of cinnamon and vanilla.
Palate: The taste is dry, elegant, warm and persistent. The alcoholic structure and acidity harmonize successfully and show finesse in their character. The wine will improve with proper cellaring, growing into its aristocratic heritage: complete, authoritative and harmonious.
Wine SpectatorPure cherry flavor defines this red, with supporting notes of earth, tar and underbrush. This is firm yet well-proportioned, with a slightly chewy licorice-tinged finish. Best from 2020 through 2027. 220 cases imported.
