Fratelli Alessandria Barolo 2015 OWC (Magnum 1.5L)
Other Reds | Italy
Under $100 for a magnum of this quality in a beautiful 1-pack wood box is so incredible it makes the hair on my neck stand up! You need at least one of these for drinking anytime between the day it arrives to 20 years from now! We can't get enough of Fratelli Alessandria right now. This is a must for anyone serious about their Nebbiolo.
We are freshly back from the Barolo region (less than a week ago) and we can say with confidence that the ‘15 vintage is shaping up beautifully. Now in bottle and beginning their slow evolution, they are just being released and NOW is the time to snag them while prices are still relatively affordable. Additionally, these JUST got the big scores, so they are getting snapped up by savvy collectors hyper-quick.Verduno, in the far north of the Barolo zone, is on fire right now and Fratelli Alessandria is leading the charge. These wines, even in a warm growing season like 2015, have so much energy and verve to balance out the gorgeous ripe berry fruits and anisette flavors. There is just so much to love in these wines, they come with our highest recommendation. Mixing and matching a case of these gems is an absolute must for Barolo lovers. FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED…!
About The Producer
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
From one of the stars of Verduno, Fratelli Alessandria, the 2015 Barolo is a beautifully elegant and compact wine at first. Give it a few moments in the glass, and the wine opens beautifully to reveal polished and detailed tones of wild berry, cassis, licorice and tar. All of this is followed by a delicate floral signature of violets and roses that accompany the wine from start to finish. This vintage is elegant yet voluptuous at the same time.
