Tasting Notes


Maturity:
Keep/Drink

ABV:
14.5 %

Notes

Great finesse, clean and clear flavours. Gently spiced notes of caraway and fresh flowers. So finely poised and such energetic fruit with a minerally, mouthwatering savoury quality. Delicate, fine boned but intense and persistent. The white chalk and sand soils, the sun-blanched amphitheatre in which it sits and its proximity to the river make this one of the great and most distinctive Crus of Barolo.

Notes
The 2015 Barolo Monvigliero is the most complete of the Barolos in this range. Suave and polished (for a young Barolo), the 2015 offers a good bit of early appeal, as all these wines do. Sweet tobacco, dried cherry, mint, crushed flowers and orange zest add layers of nuance to this pretty, expressive Barolo from Fratelli Alessandria.

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.
