Robert Parker 94
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.
Anticipated maturity: 2020-2038
The 2015 Barolo Monvigliero is a wine of pure class, not to mention considerable potential. Bright floral notes and chiseled fruit make a strong first impression. There is a good bit of tannin lurking beneath, but the richness of the fruit gives the 2015 a decidedly gentle, inviting feel.
