Fratelli Alessandria is a name that I've kept rather close to the vest. There are so many crucial discoveries we've made in Piedmont over the years, but Alessandria stand out as some of the greatest value wines. Also covering Barbera, Dolcetto, and Pelaverga, this Verduno estate resting under the radar has since found a dedicated following.

While the Alessandria wines are never short on intensity, there's a delicate sensibility here that one cannot miss. Veins of minerality come across super finely, with a crackling tone of acidity that lingers on the finish. Relative to most of Barolo, the wine's coloring is lighter because of the higher altitude of Verduno as well as the winemaking style, favoring transparency instead of power.
