The Barbera D'Alba, named after the daughter, belongs to the top group of wines produced in the Langhe.

The hand-picked and carefully selected grapes in October are lightly pressed and destemmed. Fermentation takes place in vertical fermentation tanks with a controlled temperature and a short maceration time. The aging of the wines then takes place in French barriques of different ages and lasts 18 months. After a short period of bottle storage, the Barolo is then sold.

Nose of black berries and cherries, nutty oak, some pepper, earthy and vegetal notes. Rather dark fruit on the palate, but also notes of wood and nutty aromas. Fine tannins and well-integrated acidity. Juicy finish with lots of power and earthy, vegetal tones as well as mineral and peppery components. Be sure to decant the wine.

Alessandria Gianfranco Barbera D'Alba Vittoria 2019 DOC is ready to drink immediately and for the next 8-9 years. Goes very well with risotto, roasts, grilled and red meat.

The producer:  Alessandria Gianfranco

Gianfranco Alessandria, with the support of his wife Bruna and daughter Vittoria, runs the winery today, continuing the family tradition started two generations ago.

After the death of his father in 1986, Gianfranco first attended the viticulture school in Alba and learned the winemaker's trade. He then began to manage the inherited business. He first produced grapes on about 4 hectares of intact vineyards, which he then sold to the cooperative for further processing. But right from the start, his ambition was to make authentic wines from his grapes. Step by step he began to modernize the winery in a targeted manner and to equip it with the necessary machines and equipment. At first he only produced small quantities of his own wines, but his was very well received and over the years production has steadily increased and today the winery produces around 50000 bottles a year.

The winery is located in Monforte d'Alba, one of the most famous municipalities in the Barolo area and represents Barolo wines of great character and structure with freshness, elegance and longevity. Today the company owns a total of 5.5 hectares and leases an additional 1 hectare of vineyards on the San Giovanni Cru, which also allows the winery to produce great Barolo single-vineyard wines.

The family's way of working is based on natural principles and respects the times and methods necessary to produce a sustainable product. The winery has been growing organic wine for years and only uses sulfur, verdigris or copper sulphate for the treatment. From the beginning, Gianfranco started with a drastic reduction in the number of grapes per hectare, favoring a better ripening of the grapes, making them healthier and more resistant to the climate. The vinification takes place with short maceration times in temperature-controlled vertical fermentation tanks and aging in small French barriques.

The family continues undeterred on its way and its development and with daughter Vittoria the next generation is already in the starting blocks.
