This is the cellar-stuffer.**  If you're going to lay some Barolo into the gas tank to have on hand and crush with a nice steak, or at the end of a long week, this is IT. Often one of my favorite wines to forget about (if I can for long enough) and lay down in the Cellar. Alas, I also love to drink this fresh and revel in Vittore's masterful winemaking. He views this as his *flagship* with good reason and reflects the true art of an art-of-the-blend region. Bottoms up! -JZS

**The challenge with the above, however true, assertion is that this wine along with all Alessandria wines are SUPER allocated and I encourage you to reserve absolutely as much as you like with the express understanding that I may need to cut your order back based on demand and availability. It does not mean that I love you any less.

95 points Kerin O'Keefe: "Fragrant and refined, Fratelli Alessandria’s 2019 Barolo del Comune di Verduno opens with enticing scents recalling dog rose, perfumed forest berry, cedar and eucalyptus. Lithe and elegantly structured, the savory palate reveals juicy red cherry, spiced cranberry and star anise accompanied by taut, fine-grained tannins. It’s well balanced, with fresh acidity. Drink: 2024–2034. (Mar 2023)" 

92 points Audrey Frick (jebdunnuck.com): "There is expansive perfume of anise, raspberry liqueur, rose petal, and chalky earth in the glass of the 2019 Barolo Del Comune Di Verduno. It is medium-bodied, with a persistent linear structure and fresh-driven citrus of orange peel, tea leaf, and cranberry. Allow another year and drink 2025-2035. Drink: 2025-2035. (5/4/23)"

Vittore views this as his *flagship* with good reason and reflects the true art of an art-of-the-blend region. Bottoms up!

From the Winery: This Barolo is distinguished by the “spicy elegance” that is the territorial hallmark of the wines of Verduno. It is produced according to the traditional practice of blending grapes from several vineyards; in this case five: Pisapola, Riva Rocca, Campasso, Rocche dell’Olmo and Boscatto.
