The 2018 Barolo Gramolere is another gorgeous wine from Alessandria. It has the same translucent character I saw from barrel. The tannins remain a bit edgy, perhaps because of what appears to be a bit less fruit depth. Savory, floral and mineral notes abound in this mid-weight, classically built Barolo from Fratelli Alessandria.
Anticipated maturity: 2026-2038

With fruit from Monforte d’Alba, the 2018 Barolo Gramolere is linear and tight with etched aromas of crisp forest berry, iron ore, blood orange, blue violet and crushed stone. The wine is bright and expressive with time in the glass, but it takes a while to open fully. The tannins are firm but integrated. It should be interesting to retaste this Barolo after the 10-year mark.
Anticipated maturity: 2024-2040
