The Barolo is distinctively elegant and graceful. Both its bouquet and taste are well-balanced and delicate. This Barolo is produced according to the ancient custom of assembling grapes from different vineyards: Gramolere in the commune of Monforte d’Alba, Pisapola, Riva Rocca Campasso, Rocche dell’Olmo and Boscatto in the commune of Verduno. -Winemaker’s Notes

The Fratelli Alessandria 2014 Barolo is a streamlined and elegant wine that imparts delicate tones of wild berry, spice, licorice, rosemary twig and candied orange peel. This is a classic expression and an absolute embodiment of Barolo tradition. The finish is long and silky with lingering tones of smoke and crushed mineral. This wine is very nicely done. It ages slowly in large Slavonian oak casks for three years. Some 20,000 bottles were produced. – Monica Larner – 31-08-2018

Iris, rose petal and menthol aromas take shape in the glass. On the taut elegant palate, polished tannins support sour cherry, cranberry and star anise. It’s balanced and almost racy, with vibrant acidity. Drink 2019–2026.

Now with a few months in bottle, Alessandria’s 2014 Barolo is a real powerhouse. Smoke, scorched earth, tobacco, menthol, licorice and wild cherry all convey an impression of gravitas, as this potent, muscular Barolo shows off its personality. The 2014 has quite a bit of density and richness at this level. I won’t be surprised if it turns out even better than this note suggests. There is so much going on here.
