Fratelli Alessandria has made this Barolo “normale” since 1880!  Starting with the 2017 vintage it took on the name Barolo del comune di Verduno.  From 4ha of Verduno crus: Pisapola, Campasso, Riva Rocca , Boscatto, Rocche dell’Olmo, exposures from South to East.  Harvest in the first part of October. Fermentation in stainless w/ macerations of 12-15 days.  Aged 3 years in Slavonian oak botti of 2000 to 4000L, then settled in tank again for 2 months and bottle-aged for 6 months before release. 20,000 bottles made.

"The Fratelli Alessandria 2018 Barolo del Comune di Verduno shows extreme clarity and focus with pinpoint aromas of cassis, sour cherry, crushed stone and perfumed violets. This is a standout wine that 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."
