Quite light medium ruby. Quite floral, with sweet red fruits and touch of sweet spice underneath . In the mouth , quite sweet red fruits , red cherry , raspberry with touches of wood spice and anis. Nice balance, quite noticeable acidity , and slightly gritty tannins, integrated alcohol . The finish is reasonable , quite fresh. Overall a successful wine for the vintage , made in a easily accessible style . Drink now and over the next 10 years . — 22 days ago

End of friends’ Columbia County birthday celebration, a nice accompaniment to milk chocolate cake & overall good karma. Cherry life saver color, a gentle acidity & RS and slight frizzante makes the brachetto d’aqui one my fave dessert wines on the lighter side — 8 days ago

I generally like Fratelli Alessendria. Was hoping this 2013 barolo would be at the 9.3 - 9.4 level but not quite there. On the lighter side for barolo, both in terms of the fruit as well as the overall body and finish. Still a nice wine and a good pairing with some pheasant and elk loin, but slightly disappointed. — 8 days ago
Update Day 2: I really liked this even more on day as everything grew on the below from day 1, the palate and the intensity all went up 2 notches! This exceeds the really good 2018 and should easily have the stuffing to age which is why this grape is getting so much attention in Barolo these days.
Day 1: I just tasted this last night, I got into a bottle and will see how it evolves over a few days. Preliminarily this is really good, better than the very good 2018 I last had at this stage, as it should be as it's a better vintage. The nose is med/med+, as this grape is typically more pronounced in flavor than aroma, where the flavors here are more med+. The coravin glass I had opened up nicely over 30 minutes, deepening with notes of apples and peach, a light background touch of honey and almonds, subtle and elegant minerality underpins it all. Med+ finish shows the texture this grape is know for in a med+ weight. — 2 months ago
