Fratelli Alessandria's history in Barolo goes back to the mid 1800s with familial connection to the Burlottos. They age for around 3 long years in traditional, larger Slavonian and French oak vats, favoring a moderately pure expression of the fruit. The San Lorenzo vineyard in Verduno (close to the Tanaro river) faces south toward the midday sun, high up the slope, but still only around 250m in altitude. While Verduno is known for the 'elegant' side to broad-shouldered Barolo, this bottling tends to shows a generous fruit and rounded tannic structure, along with a more subdued acidity.

In 2019, a consistently warm vintage that ended with a late harvest, the results are amplified with more depth and aromatic detail.

WINE ADVOCATE 96 POINTS - "This vineyard delivers slightly more concentrated fruit and a medium-dark appearance from loamy calcareous soils. The 2019 Barolo San Lorenzo di Verduno delivers more oomph and power with ripe cherry, blackcurrant, dark spice and earthy aromas. Fratelli Alessandria makes some of the most harmonious wines in Verduno, and that quality comes through beautifully in this wine, despite the slightly more robust fruit weight delivered by San Lorenzo di Verduno. Only 5,000 bottles were made."
