Gianfranco Alessandria Barolo


Gianfranco Alessandria Barolo

Gianfranco AlessandriaGianfranco Alessandria is an inspired young grower with a range of ripe, full and stylish reds. From 5.5 ha of vineyards at Monforte, (plus 1.5 ha rented) the top wines all show a measure of new oak but it is never obvious or allowed to dominate. An intense Barbera Vittoria from over 65-year-old vines, and beautifully balanced Barolo San Giovanni (a special selection rather than vineyard-specific) are particularly worthy but all of the wines deliver good fruit in a modern accessible style. Gianfranco’s version of Insieme (see ALTARE), 45% Nebbiolo, 40% Barbera and 15% Dolcetto, is one of the best.
