    Justerini & Brooks Tasting note
    Fratelli Alessandria, Barolo, Monvigliero, 2015

    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.

    Susan Hulme, The Wine Independent
    The 2017 Fratelli Alessandria Barolo Monvigliero has spicy, peppery, rose petal and delicate red fruit notes on a very pretty, fragrant nose. It has depth, concentration and flesh in the middle. It is still very assertive, with slightly drying chalky tannins, not fully integrated into the body of the wine. It lacks the harmony and finesse of the very great wines but is an attractive, characterful country cousin. Wait 2-3 years, keep 20-25.

    Antonio Galloni, Vinous
    The 2017 Barolo Monvigliero marries the raciness of the year with the floral lift and elegance of this great Verduno site. More than anything, the 2017 is a Barolo of pure and total sensuality. Even so, there is more than enough tannin to allow the 2017 to drink well for many years to come. It is very clearly one of the wines of the vintage. The rich, substantial finish is a thing of real beauty.

    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.
