Vintage Vigilant

We aim to have all wines above $30 be vintage specific. In the case the listed vintage is out of stock and you note you would like that particular vintage, we will inform you via email for approval to go ahead.

Delivery Times

To be able to supply such a unique & extensive range of boutique wines, we don't hold much of the inventory. So with us, there is the added step of receiving the wine from our local suppliers before it is dispatched to you. Most orders are dispatched within 3-6 working days.

Returns and Warranty

Replacement or refund offered if bottles are faulty or damaged. All our deliveries are insured against loss, however you must notify us in a reasonable amount of time.

Description

A precipitous 50% gradient in places, Valmaggiore is planted to a high density of 8,000 vines per hectare and the soil here is comprised almost entirely of pure sand littered with fossilised crustaceans (i.e. it is a chalky sand). This soil gifts a remarkably perfumed and elegant expression of Nebbiolo, nothing to do with the more powerful style of wine produced in the clay rich soils of Barolo and Barbaresco. For those new to this wine, the Sandrone family first came to the Valmaggiore in 1990 and it took them several years to buy up the 28 individual parcels that form the continuous three-hectare holding owned today. The vineyard is farmed meticulously and organically, and a strict sorting occurs each year to reach the level of purity and intensity we see in the wine today. After primary fermentation in tank, the malo and maturation, for 12 months, occur in aged French oak (500 litre). The note below really nails it - this is the greatest Valmaggiore we have shipped. It's a wine of such remarkable purity (violets, dried rose petals and small red fruits) and finesse, a wine built on perfume. We can't recommend it highly enough although don't buy it if you love power, buy it if you love pretty, pure and nuanced wines that are also incredibly delicious!
