Sandrone 2005 Valmaggiore (Nebbiolo d'Alba)

Dense and gripping, this Nebbiolo d'Alba outdoes many Barolos. The complex nose shows blueberry notes and lifted aromas of perfumed soap. The palate is concentrated but in a closed state; leather and tar notes dominate but yield to refreshing blackberry flavors on the finish. Can be drunk now but several years aging will give the tannins a chance to soften and allow the palate to open up.
