Fratelli Alessandria 'del Comune di Verduno' Barolo 2018

Product description
The Barolo del Comune di Verduno highlights the elegance and suave fruit of the Alessandria family's home village, Verduno. We can't think of a better tribute to this northern Barolo town, renowned for centuries for its refined Nebbiolo wines and talented winemaking families.

Rose, woodland berry, pine forest and culinary spice are some of the aromas you'll find on this fragrant, fantastic red. Smooth, full-bodied and polished, the savoury palate delivers ripe red cherry, crushed raspberry, star anise and white pepper alongside velvety tannins. Fresh acidity keeps it bright.

The Fratelli Alessandria 2018 Barolo del Comune di Verduno shows extreme clarity and focuses on pinpoint aromas of cassis, sour cherry, crushed stone and perfumed violets. This standout wine shines bright in a vintage that is not always even when you consider its peers. The wine invigorates the palate with acidity, minerality and fine tannins. This is a terrific, albeit slightly more approachable, Barolo.
