    Justerini & Brooks Tasting note
    Fratelli Alessandria, Barolo, Gramolere, 2013

    From Vittore’s mother side of the family, this is a vineyard that came from the Manzone estate in Monforte in 2001. Higher than Verduno, at 400 metres above sea level and yielding completely different wines. Mores fleshy, tannic and compact than the Monvigliero, structured but velvety. Dark berry fruits are accompanied by a more savoury, earthy character, notes of plum and plum stone, herb and undergrowth with hint of iron. Smart, deep and impressive.

    Antonio Galloni, Vinous
    Alessandria's 2014 Barolo Gramolere is just as impressive from bottle as it was from barrel, and every bit as potent, too. Huge swaths of tannin give the 2014 its shape and overall structure, with the deeply spiced, mentholated, balsamic notes that are so typical of this site. Readers will have to be patient, but the 2014 is a jewel of a wine.

    Fratelli Alessandria

    An historic Verduno estate that dates back as far as the 8th century. A true family affair Vittore Alessandria, his mother Flavia, father Gian Battista & uncle Ale have been working hard in recent years to give more precision to their charming wines: more leaves, fewer treatments in the vineyards, along with the investment into a battery of Swiss coopered Slavonian oak botti have all helped to give increased focus to the wines. Made in a traditional and non-interventionist way, the wines are fermented gently and slowly before elevage in large oak cask for three years. These are some of the aromatic, elegant and charming Barolos you’ll find.
