Gianfranco Alessandria's Barolo red wine has been an undiscovered jewel for years. This is even more true for the 2019 vintage, which is beautifully straight and balanced.
The berries for the Gianfranco Alessandria Barolo 2019 DOCG come from various Nebbiolo slopes owned by the family in the municipality of Monforte D'Alba. The hand-picked and carefully selected grapes are lightly pressed and destemmed. Fermentation takes place in vertical fermentation tanks with controlled temperatures with a short mashing time. The wines then mature in French barriques and last 24 months. After a short period of bottle storage, the Barolo is then sold.
The diverse aromas are impressive with notes of sweet, red berries, spices and dry flowers. The hearty tannin, alongside the fine fruit sweetness, has a very pleasant and balanced effect. The finish has a good length with a lot of charm. A very successful Barolo with a lot of balance and finesse.
