2014 Fratelli Alessandria Barolo

SKU #1405273 93 points Decanter

 Vittore Alessandria merges tradition, blending crus and using large barrels, with modernity – stainless steel tanks and medium to short fermentations. The result is splendid: a carpet of flowers and herbs filling the glass and irresistible drinkability. (TG)  (1/2019)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The Fratelli Alessandria 2014 Barolo is a streamlined and elegant wine that imparts delicate tones of wild berry, spice, licorice, rosemary twig and candied orange peel. This is a classic expression and an absolute embodiment of Barolo tradition. The finish is long and silky with lingering tones of smoke and crushed mineral. This wine is very nicely done. It ages slowly in large Slavonian oak casks for three years. (ML)  (8/2018)

91 points Vinous

 Now with a few months in bottle, Alessandria's 2014 Barolo is a real powerhouse. Smoke, scorched earth, tobacco, menthol, licorice and wild cherry all convey an impression of gravitas, as this potent, muscular Barolo shows off its personality. The 2014 has quite a bit of density and richness at this level. I won't be surprised if it turns out even better than this note suggests. There is so much going on here. (AG) 91+  (11/2018)

90 points Wine Enthusiast

 Iris, rose petal and menthol aromas take shape in the glass. On the taut elegant palate, polished tannins support sour cherry, cranberry and star anise. It's balanced and almost racy, with vibrant acidity. Drink 2019–2026. (KO)  (10/2018)

Jancis Robinson

 Softly spicy and with a savoury mineral note. Fresh and minerally with fine cherry fruit and lively acidity. Pinot Noir style. Clinging tasty tannins and perfumed fruit finish. Well done. 17/20 points. (WS)  (11/2017)
