Fantastic value. Very young and tight and could age for quite some time (10+ years). Definitely cellar potential.

Valmaggiore; a superiour vineyard in Roero. The sandier soils brings finesse, elegance and a more approachable and instant wine compared to the big boys of Barolo and Barbaresco. This treasure with the legend Bruno Giacosa behind the wheel must be a hallmark example from the cru. Enchanting and mesmerizing nose showcasing the grandeur of Nebbiolo with a varietal, red fruit-rosy primary character and a pronounced savoury and earthy background. Good grip on the palate with fine knitted and gripping tannins and a salivating acidity that is bringing a balanced act through the finish.

Bright cherry and acidity! Exactly what I wanted from this bottle. Perfect for Branzino and scallops pairing.
