    Fratelli Alessandria, Barolo, Gramolere, 2013

    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.

    Susan Hulme, The Wine Independent
    The 2017 Fratelli Alessandria Barolo Gramolere has a lively nose - it is spicy, vibrant and nuanced. Lively too on the palate, it is very forceful with, fine-textured, chalky tannins. Energetic and characterful. It needs more time, wait 3 years, drink for 20.

    The 2017 Barolo Gramolere is a powerful, tightly wound wine full of Monforte tension. Readers will have to be patient. Dark-fleshed fruit, spice, menthol, licorice and sage add layers of aromatic intrigue to this firm, hulky Barolo. The 2017 takes all the Gramolere signatures and turns up the volume.

    Fratelli Alessandria

    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.
