Drink now through to 2030. Decant 1 hour before serving.

The gorgeous hilltop town of Verduno where Fratelli Alessandria is based was once the heartland of the Barolo wine region where the very first modern-style Barolo wines were made. These days the commune is enjoying a revival thanks to the passion and commitment to local families like the Alessandrias who have been making wine here since the estate was founded in 1870.

Today the estate is in the capable hands of Gian Battista, Alessandro and Alessandro’s son, Vittore, who seek to express the authentic character of Barolo through their elegant, expressive wines which capture the complexity of the local terroir. Their Barolo is made with top quality grapes from five different plots in Verduno as well as a small proportion of fruit from Monforte d’Alba.

The relatively high elevation of these vineyards helps to craft grapes with abundant freshness and aromatic complexity. In the winery the must is fermented with wild yeasts and the young wines are aged in large used Slavonian and French oak casks for three years. This produces a remarkably elegant Barolo with intense aromas of dark cherries, baking spice and dried Mediterranean herbs. On the palate there is a distinctive freshness, medium body and fine tannins which make this an excellent option for extended cellar ageing.
