Fratelli Alessandria Barolo 2012

Fratelli Alessandria Barolo 2012

Availability: Out of stock


"Fratelli Alessandria Alessandria's 2012 Barolo is pure class. Floral, lifted and gracious, the 2012 can be enjoyed young or cellared. Sweet red cherry, strawberry, cinnamon, rose petal and mint are woven together in a fabric of total finesse. Weightless and gracious from start to finish, the 2012 is flat-out delicious. The 2012 is 80% Verduno fruit (from Riva Rocca, Rocca dell'Olmo, Neirane, Campasso and Bosco, plus younger vine fruit from Gramolere, the family's vineyard in Monforte). In 2012, the straight Barolo is the hidden gem in the lineup. Don't miss it. Drinking window: 2018-2032. 92 points

Fratelli Alessandria is one of Piedmont's under the radar jewels. The Alessandrias make compelling, classically-built wines from estate vineyards in Verduno and Monforte d'Alba. In 2012, the straight Barolo and the Gramolere are particularly of note. Best of all, the wines remain very reasonably priced by today's standards. Readers who enjoy structured, age-worthy Barolos won't want to be without these wines."
