Fratelli Alessandria Barolo 2013


"Alessandria's straight Barolo remains one of the most fairly priced wines in all of Piedmont. Don't miss it." Anotnio Galloni

"the finish leaves a mouthwatering impression."  Wine Spectator


‘Vittore Alessandria's 2013 Barolos are stellar. That said, the wines are quite closed relative to how they showed from cask last year, which is not entirely surprising given the style of the vintage. Time in bottle is going to be essential in allowing the 2013s to come together and express their full potential. These remain some of the finest, artisan, traditionally made Barolos readers will find. Best of all pricing has not yet caught up to the quality of what is in the bottle.’  Antonio Galloni, vinous.com 

Fratelli Alessandria's 2013 Barolo is fabulous. Scents of orange peel, cardamom, dried flowers, mint and dried cherries give the 2013 a decidedly exotic flavor profile that will only gain in sweetness and perfume as the wine ages. Mid-weight structure gives the wine considerable appeal, but readers who can cellar the 2013 will be in for a treat. Alessandria's straight Barolo remains one of the most fairly priced wines in all of Piedmont. Don't miss it.  92+ Points      Drink: 2019-2043.  Anotnio Galloni, vinous.com 

Rose and cherry notes are prominent in this supple red, whose structure is firm and well-integrated. Eucalyptus, tobacco and spice accents add interest and the finish leaves a mouthwatering impression. Best from 2020 through 2033. 93 Points.  Wine Spectator

Aromas show new leather, iris, balsamic notes and aromatic herb. Elegant and structured, the smooth taut palate offers sour cherry, cranberry, clove and a hint of licorice set against tightly knit polished tannins. It's still youthfully austere so give it a few more years to let it bloom into a beauty. 92 points. Wine Enthusiast
