Fratelli Alessandria Barolo Monvigliero 2018  - First Bottle

Reviews

95 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate -
The 2018 Barolo Monvigliero shows a beautiful signature of pressed violets, rose garden, white stone, crushed peppercorn and grilled rosemary. The wine is smooth and soft in texture, yet it feels stitched up and firm at the back thanks to the support it gets from those balanced tannins. This wine should hold 20 years or more.
95 Wine Enthusiast -
Heady aromas of camphor, rose petal and red forest berry come to the forefront along with whiffs of pipe tobacco and new leather. Full-bodied but refined and well-balanced, the savory palate features ripe Marasca cherry, crushed raspberry, licorice and mint alongside velvety tannins and fresh acidity. Drink 2026–2033.
95 Vinous -
The 2018 Barolo Monvigliero is broad, ample and so expressive, all while showing the finess and classicism that are such a signature of this wine. All elements are so well balanced in a barolo that speaks to harmony above all else. Sweet red cherry, cedar, orange peel, tobacco and cinnamon give the 2018 tons of aromatic presence. Best of all, the 2018 will drink well with minimal cellaring. It's a gorgeous wine in every way.
91 James Suckling -
A tight core of raspberries, minerals and oaky notes. Medium-bodied with fine, lightly abrasive tannins and a focused finish. Compact at the moment with a light feel to it. But it should expand with a little bottle age. Try from 2023.

About the Producer

The Alessandria family since the mid-19th century has called this gentle landscape home. In 1870, when the family first established their farm, calling it Fratelli Alessandria, Verduno was the center of Barolo winemaking—it was here where families first crafted dry Nebbiolo wines in the style we know today, and also bottled wines individually instead of shipping in cask. Because of this, the village was internationally recognized as the face of Barolo and sought out by collectors across the European continent.
