Barolo San Lorenzo di Verduno

2018
Italy
Piedmont

From the small Verduno cru of San Lorenzo (South exposure, 240-260m), where Fratelli Alessandria owns 0.8ha.   Average vine age of 30 years.  Made similarly to the Barolo Verduno, but with longer macerations, 20-25 days. First produced in 1997.  5,000 bottles made.

"The Fratelli Alessandria 2018 Barolo San Lorenzo di Verduno opens to a delicate and ethereal personality with fluttering aromas of blue flower, cassis, candied grapefruit and white pepper. The bouquet is fragrant and lifted, giving way to a subtle but very elegant mouthfeel. The wine's texture is fine and incredibly polished."
