Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate – 92 points 
With scorching heat and little rain overall, there was reason for worry during the 2017 growing season at large, but in the Roero zone by the banks of the Tanaro river, the hilly Valmaggiore vineyards received more rain than other parts of Piedmont, so these grapes did not suffer as much. Lovely notes of red rose and some herbal tones appear on the nose of the 2017 Nebbiolo d’Alba Valmaggiore, coupled with balsam, spice and rosemary. It’s voluminous in the mouth, and while the Le Vigne Barolo tends to be the most floral and delicately ethereal of Sandrone’s release, this bouquet is distinctive in its own way. It would be a nice pair with a mushroom risotto.
