£34.17 per bottle

Tasting Note:

The inaugural vintage and first of its type in the village, Alessandria’s 2017 Barolo is a pure expression of the commune, being a blend of five different Verduno vineyards. Supple and sumptuous with a fine typically “Verduno” perfume, this offers beautiful, engaging, chalky fruit. Complex flavours of sweet Victoria plum with hints of blueberry caress the palate with a salt-washed stone character giving sapidity and spark to the finish. Attractive, tactile and deeply satisfying. After a month of gentle the wine is then aged for 3 years in large wooden vats.
