Wow! We are bursting with pride here at Napa Valley headquarters to have scored a lovely (and small!) parcel of Fratelli Alessandria’s single-vineyard, 95+POINT “Gramolere” bottling. And, after grabbing a few for OUR cellars, we are ready to offer it to you at the BEST price you will likely ever see for a collectible Barolo like this!
A few choice words from the reviews:
"When you put the wine to your lips, you immediately feel the power, structure and inner fiber of Nebbiolo as interpreted in this two-hectare parcel with its 30-year-old vines." - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, 95+ points
"Beautifully fresh and succulent style here. The nose is sweetly fragrant, spicy and brimming with ripe red berries and the palate has measured, succulent and juicy appeal." - James Suckling, 93 points
"Wild berries, purple flowers, dark spices and a whiff of camphor take shape in the glass. On the taut palate, tightly wound, fine-grained tannins support dried cherry, blood orange, licorice and tobacco." - Wine Enthusiast, 93 points
A wine to drink young and to put away for as long as you want, most likely. For us, it hits all the sweet spots we crave in northern Italian Nebbiolo --- tension, balance, electric energy and powerful flavors of tea, dried roses, cherry, mint and SO. MUCH. MORE.
ASTOUNDING PRICE. Will go fast...first come, first served!
