Barolo, Fratelli Alessandria

As far as Barolos go, one of my all time favorites. Freezing winter night in Köln, this wine hit all the perfect notes. Ripe red fruit, firm structure, medium body, and a beautiful vanilla finish. Barolo is a protected region in Piedmont, Italy. Made from the Nebbiolo grape, Barolo is one of the “Big B’s” of big, over-the-top Italian wines.
