What the Critics say
'Fratelli Alessandria Alessandria's 2012 Barolo is pure class. Floral, lifted and gracious, the 2012 can be enjoyed young or cellared. Sweet red cherry, strawberry, cinnamon, rose petal and mint are woven together in a fabric of total finesse. Weightless and gracious from start to finish, the 2012 is flat-out delicious. The 2012 is 80% Verduno fruit (from Riva Rocca, Rocca dell'Olmo, Neirane, Campasso and Bosco, plus younger vine fruit from Gramolere, the family's vineyard in Monforte). In 2012, the straight Barolo is the hidden gem in the lineup. Don't miss it. Drink: 2018-2032' (Nov16)

The Barolo is distinctively elegant and graceful. Both its bouquet and taste are well-balanced and delicate. This Barolo is produced according to the ancient custom of assembling grapes from different vineyards: Gramolere in the commune of Monforte d'Alba, Pisapola, Riva Rocca Campasso, Rocche dell’Olmo and Boscatto in the commune of Verduno.
