Barolo, Monvigliero, 2019

Tasting Note:

An unbelievable Barolo. Profound, deep and expansive on first impression, a wine that makes you sit back for a moment and take stock. Saturated with tight red fruits, rock salt, anise and minerals, there is a firm spine to this that brings real verticality. In the end, it’s not so sprawling as it is just very intense and driven – the power and of breadth of the fruit is capped by the most enormously long peacock’s tail of a finish and dazzling, mineral-laced freshness. Surely one of the wines of the vintage. First bottled as a single vineyard in 1978, Fratelli Alessandria have an impressive 1.4ha split across 4 different plots averaging 40 years old. Fermented in stainless steel and aged for three years in 25hl cask.
