• "Castel Chiuro" Valtellina Superiore Riserva DOCG 2009

      “Castel Chiuro” Valtellina Superiore Riserva DOCG 2009

      120 years after the foundation of the winery, a new edition of a classic with special equipment (including a bound history booklet) is launched on the market. This high quality Nebbiolo comes from about 50 years old vines in the vineyards Sassorosso and Sassina, where the soils are very barren and stony. Clear ruby red, rich on the palate, powerful and complex with a wonderful elegance. The finesse and precision of the Nebbiolo grape are captivating from the first sip, and with increasing ventilation this rare drop reveals its complexity and structure. An anniversary wine, as it is written in the book! SUPERIORE.DE

      "This is a gorgeous and beautifully aged expression of Nebbiolo from the high mountains in the far north of Italy. The 2009 Valtellina Superiore Riserva Castel Chiuro absolutely blossoms in the glass with rose petal, violets, wild blueberry and more tangy forest fruit. The wine shows a long and pleasurable succession of small red berry aromas such as cassis and raspberry. Those polished and elegant primary tones are followed by light brushstrokes of smoke, licorice and tar. This wine is an absolute beauty." Robert Parker

    • Rosso Lessona DOC 2014

      Rosso Lessona DOC 2014

      Luca de Marchi's showpiece horse in the stable is the eponymous Rosso from the small DOC Lessona. Fresh garnet red and a rather restrained and cool fragrance spectrum open with a lot of understatement the first sip of the very powerful and spicy taste experience, which never appears muscular or fleshy, but expands with constant, medium pressure and a cornucopia of ripe fruit in the mouth. Here and also in the finish, the Nebbiolo in the Lessona style comes to full development - in contrast to Barolo or Barbaresco with more restraint and instead a depth that only reveals itself after some time. Gripping and impressive - definitely aerate! SUPERIORE.DE

      "Although best known for his Chianti estate Isole e Olena, Paolo de Marchi longed to revive his ancestral property, which is now run with energy by his son Luca. This is beautifully perfumed on the nose, which shows great charm. The palate is more robust, with firmness and concentration, and lively acidity. The silky texture is particularly appealing. Good acidity and length, and a great success for a tricky vintage." Decanter

    • "Giàrborina" Rosso Langhe DOC 2015

      “Giàrborina” Rosso Langhe DOC 2015

      Langhe Giàrborina (formerly Arborina) smells silky and nuanced, in the glass red cherries, blackberries and meadow flowers. A magnificent Nebbiolo, perfectly balanced, captivatingly elegant and with a promising future. SUPERIORE.DE

      "The 2015 Langhe Giàrborina reveals a soft and velvety disposition that is enhanced by layers of fruit, spice and smoke. There is a note of candied cherry or dried blackberry that serves to remind you that this was a warm growing season. The wine is executed in an up-front or accessible style that makes it perfect for grilled meats or succulent meatloaf." Robert Parker

      "The 2015 Langhe Giarborina, Altare's 100% Nebbiolo, exudes energy, tension and class. At this early stage, it is quite primary, which is not surprising for a young Giarborina. Readers will have to give the 2015 at least a few years in bottle to allow it to flesh out." Antonio Galloni

      Langhe Giàrborina (formerly Arborina) smells silky and nuanced, in the glass red cherries, blackberries and meadow flowers. A magnificent Nebbiolo, perfectly balanced, captivatingly elegant and with a promising future. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Seeing a short maceration time and only a brief aging period in barrique, the 2016 Langhe Giàrborina offers a rich, plummy and soft approach. The wine is ready to drink right out of the gate with a veal lasagna and bechamel sauce." Robert Parker

      "The 2016 Langhe Giarborina is another breathtaking wine from Altare. Soaring aromatics and finely knit fruit are the signatures of an exceptional vintage in which the Altare family captured all the potential of the year. A regal, aristocratic wine, the 2016 has it all. Polished tannins add to the wine's considerable appeal. Above all else, the 2016 Giarborina is a wine of exceptional balance. There is so much to like." Vinous

    • "Valmaggiore" Nebbiolo d'Alba DOC 2018 <br>MAGNUM in OWC

      “Valmaggiore” Nebbiolo d’Alba DOC 2018 · MAGNUM in OWC

      This Nebbiolo comes from one of the best sites in Roero and is vinified by Luciano Sandrone with the same care as a Barolo. Radiant ruby garnet. Wonderful scent of light red fruit, mainly raspberry and cherry. On the palate it is earthy with a beautiful strawberry touch and incredibly elegant. The fine-grained tannin is wonderfully integrated and together with a subtle minerality gives this Nebbiolo a breed and finesse that is second to none. SUPERIORE.DE

      "A delicious, juicy red with strawberries, light chocolate and bark. It’s medium-bodied with lovely fruit and a flavorful finish. Serious nebbiolo. It can age, too." James Suckling

      "The Luciano Sandrone 2018 Nebbiolo d'Alba Valmaggiore shows a very fruity, fresh and accessible side of the Nebbiolo grape. This wine is open-knit and inviting with a steady succession of aromas that range from red cherry and plum to rosemary sprig and crushed mineral. On some level, you could call it Barolo Lite, although that does not do justice to the Valmaggiore vineyard in Roero that outperforms year after year. The wine is Barolo-adjacent for sure, but it offers its own bright and distinct personality. It's an exciting, new generation of Nebbiolo." Robert Parker

      Outstanding terroir, terrific quality of the grapes and masterly cellar technology made it one of the most highly endowed wines! Bewitching aromas of candied cherry fruit with notes of spices and tobacco. On the palate dense, very concentrated with fabulous fruit sweetness, subtle acidity and fresh tannins. A hedonistic and at the same time very contemporary dream of finesse and elegance, which echoes with long and incredibly deep flavours. SUPERIORE.DE

      Perbacco shows in the fresh bouquet first lightly leafy notes, then a lot of cherry. On the palate beautifully round, lots of ripe fruit, cherries and red berries, underlaid with fine-grained tannin, long finish. SUPERIORE.DE

      "A wine with a diehard fan club, the Vietti 2017 Langhe Nebbiolo Perbacco drinks like a young Barolo but costs a fraction of the price. I really need to say little more because that accurately sums up the vast appeal of this classic and versatile Nebbiolo. The bouquet is expressive and fresh with wild berries, blue flowers, spice and tobacco. Besides a bit more color concentration that you might notice in the wine's appearance, Perbacco magically shows no sign of the hot vintage." Robert Parker

      Luciano has been holding back a small amount of his Nebbiolo Valmaggiore for several years now and has it matured further on the bottle in his cellar. The result is a result under the name "Sibi et Paucis", which impressively underpins the cult status of his "little Barolo". Ruby red and with a phenomenal fragrance - balsamic and earthy, but also fine-fruity. The disciplined taste with the wonderfully balanced, velvety tannins merges into a long aftertaste and is accompanied by fine fruit and mint aromas. Wonderful elegance with even more ageing potential. SUPERIORE.DE
