Barolo Monvigliero

2018
Italy
Piedmont

Monvigliero is arguably the most important cru of Verduno and Fratelli Alessandria has some of the biggest holdings there, 1.4ha.  Exposures are South to Southwest, 250-310m.   High average vine age of 45 years. Made similarly to the Barolo San Lorenzo.  Monvigliero exalts the beguiling florality and spice that are Verduno’s calling card.  First produced in 1978. 6,500 bottles made.

"The 2018 Barolo Monvigliero shows a beautiful signature of pressed violets, rose garden, white stone, crushed peppercorn and grilled rosemary. The wine is smooth and soft in texture, yet it feels stitched up and firm at the back thanks to the support it gets from those balanced tannins. This wine should hold 20 years or more."
