VALMAGGIORE Nebbiolo d’Alba 2009


Tasting notes

Delicate garnet rose color. Aromas and flavors of roses, berries and red fruits, with an appealing and delicate licorice streak, minty and menthol notes.


In the mouth, excellent acidity and fruit balance, with strawberries and red raspberries dominating the flavors, a ripe but dry tannic bite tempered by sweet fruit and an expansive finish.

Evolution of the vintage 2009

The 2009 vintage will be remembered for the unusually heavy winter snowfall. Combined with a fairly wet early spring, this restored the ground water supply, which was low after several dry seasons.


After April 30 the weather returned to normal and the germination was uneventful and even, thanks to little rain in May and above-average temperatures.


The summer was characterized by low rainfall and periods of above-average heat. The vines had a regular linear development in all phenological aspects.


Good climatic conditions accompanied the end of the growing season and brought the grapes to optimum ripeness.


Harvesting took place between the 29th of September to the 7th of October.
