    Description

    Barolo, also known as “the king of wines”, is one of Italy's most noble wines. "This is such a classy wine. The 2018 Barolo del Comune di Verduno turned out even better than I expected. Dark and beautifully layered, the 2018 offers up an intriguing mix of dark blue fruits, lavender, spice, dried herbs and flowers. The 2018 has gained a bit of mid-palate depth that works so well in filling out its mid-weight frame." - 92 Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com, Nov 2022 This is a new Barolo cuvee and is assembled from grapes of different vineyards around the commune of Verduno.

    ABOUT FRATELLI ALESSANDRIA

    Fratelli Alessandria is one of Piedmont’s under-the-radar jewels. The Alessandrias make compelling, classically-built wines from estate vineyards in Verduno and Monforte d’Alba. Best of all, the wines remain very reasonably priced by today’s standards. Readers who enjoy structured, age-worthy Barolos won’t want to be without these wines —Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com The Alessandria family since the mid-19th century has called this gentle landscape home. In 1870, when the family first established their farm, calling it Fratelli Alessandria , Verduno was the center of Barolo winemaking—it was here where families first crafted dry Nebbiolo wines in the style we know today, and also bottled wines individually instead of shipping in cask. Because of this, the village was internationally recognized as the face of Barolo and sought out by collectors across the European continent. Today Verduno is experiencing a renaissance, and it is the “brothers” Alessandria who are guiding the wines of Verduno back to the heights they once held. It is of course a family affair—the brothers Gian Battista and Alessandro, and Alessandro’s son, Vittore, are the stewards of this generations-old estate. What Verduno gives is exactly what we crave in our Barolo wines: complexity without heaviness, structure with finesse. The Alessandria family provides a “mirror to the landscape,” Vittore says, respecting the history of their forefathers yet “looking ahead” to ensure that what’s in each bottle reflects the true essence of Barolo from Verduno.

    What The Critics Say
    "The Fratelli Alessandria 2018 Barolo del Comune di Verduno shows extreme clarity and focus with pinpoint aromas of cassis, sour cherry, crushed stone and perfumed violets. This is a standout wine that shines bright in a vintage that is not always even when you consider its peers. The wine invigorates the palate with acidity, minerality and fine tannins. This is a terrific, albeit slightly more approachable Barolo. Drink: 2024-2040"
