description

This family has been making Barolo continuously for more than 100 years. Experience combined with a fresh approach introduced by Vittore (in charge of vinification since 2001) that defies being defined as either traditional or modern, has brought this estate to the highest level in Barolo. The vineyards of Verduno are predisposed toward elegant, “Burgundian” styled Barolo, and the meticulous low yield farming they employ adds a hint of power to the natural finesse. They are simply stunning across the board; power, complexity, elegance and value, yes you can have them all. Their Pelaverga is a benchmark for the tiny DOC and all of the wines are exceptionally well made. From Antonio Galloni in the Wine Advocate 10-2009 "This is another set of compelling wines from Fratelli Alessandria. In fact, I can’t think of another producer making Barolos at this level that still sell for such reasonable prices." ; 12-23-10 "This is a knock out set of new releases from Fratelli Alessandria, one of Piemonte's up and coming producers." Thank you Antonio!, But even as we realize that Piemonte is a slow moving and rather conservative place, these wines have been simply spectacular since the 1995 vintage, and I move that they be moved from "up and coming" to "well established star" status.

Monvigliero hill is known as the most prestigious single vineyard in Verduno town and is definitely one of the most symbolic of Barolo country. Our vineyard has over 30 years of age, at an altitude of about 320 meters and faces south. The wine from Monvigliero is austere and complex.
