The small village of Verduno is the home of Pelaverga, but less than a dozen local producers have stayed true to Verduno’s special grape. It’s this sun-bleached hamlet, kissed by the breezes coming off the river Tanaro, that the Alessandria family calls home.

The Alessandria "brothers" have been farming grapes and making Barolo in the ancient village of Verduno since the 1800's. Indeed they and some of their neighbors were among the very first to bottle the dry, complex and age-worthy Nebbiolo that Barolo is now famous for. Today, the actual brothers are Gian Battista and Alessandro, with Alessandro's son Vittore increasingly at the helm, and they work together much the same as their familly has for generations.

Farming is crucial: they use organic principles in all of their 30 hectares of vineyards.

"These village-specific wines are growing in popularity, and among the various expressions on the market today, this wine from Verduno is really quite special thanks to its highly distinctive floral aromas and its delicate sense of inner balance. A new project being inaugurated with this vintage, the Fratelli Alessandria 2019 Barolo del Comune di Verduno shows a fine, streamlined mouthfeel with polished tones of river stone, crushed rose and licorice root." -Robert Parker

What importer Bowler Wine has to say about this wine...

Fratelli Alessandria has made this Barolo “normale” since 1880! Starting with the 2017 vintage it took on the name Barolo del comune di Verduno. From 4ha of Verduno crus: Pisapola, Campasso, Riva Rocca , Boscatto, Rocche dell’Olmo, exposures from South to East. Harvest in the first part of October. Fermentation in stainless w/ macerations of 12-15 days. Aged 3 years in Slavonian oak botti of 2000 to 4000L, then settled in tank again for 2 months and bottle-aged for 6 months before release. 20,000 bottles made.
