Next to the classic Barolo, the Fratelli Alessandria 2016 Barolo San Lorenzo di Verduno shows a slightly darker hue and more mild concentration. The bouquet reveals less outright floral and fruit definition, and it offers more secondary and tertiary aromatic complexity instead, with spice, crushed stone, balsam herb and faint white truffle. The wine is powerful and shows a richer fiber, not by much but just enough to consider a more robust food pairing and more cellar age. A mere 5,000 bottles were released, and this is another home run from this impressive set of new releases from Fratelli Alessandria. Drink: 2024-2048.
