    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
    Most of the Fratelli Alessandria wines are from Verduno but the steep 55-60 year old Gramolere vineyard is in Montforte d'Alba, 400 meters above sea level and has a very sandy sand /clay mix. The 2018 Barolo Gramolere from Fratelli Alessandria has flinty, slightly smoky notes. It has a firm structure with slightly irony, orange peel notes and firm upright tannins. It is chunky and assertive and a really characterful, attractive wine.

    The 2018 Barolo Gramolere is another gorgeous wine from Alessandria. It has the same translucent character I saw from barrel. The tannins remain a bit edgy, perhaps because of what appears to be a bit less fruit depth. Savory, floral and mineral notes abound in this mid-weight, classically built Barolo from 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.
