Description

Heart and continuity. ALESTE is the natural continuity of Luciano's first wine, the Barolo Cannubi Boschis. Giving all the experience, knowledge, patience and passion of his many harvests, Luciano pays tribute, with boldness and sensibility, to the next family generation: "ALESTE" is in fact the combination of the names of his grandchildren ALEssia and STEfano. An iconic wine. From the very first bottling in 1985, Luciano always believed in the unique and distinctive potential of the Cannubi hill, and that he wanted to express this potential by way of a separate vinification. This bottling pays homage to the richness and elegance of the favoured Cannubi site in the heart of the Barolo. The optimal soil and climate conditions, harvest after harvest, have brought forth a wine that has drawn international attention since its first release.

Review

It asks for a lot of air to come out but when it does it gives great complexity in the mixed floral and fruity notes of lavender, hibiscus, passionflower, geraniums, wild strawberries, cherries, white peaches and chamomile. It's complex and fascinating with a snobbish character, typical of a champion, son of an MGA, capable of giving consistency in production even in the most difficult years. Full-bodied, perfectly matured tannins well polymerized in the matrix and a finale which is fantastic for it's precision of execution and persistence in the after-tasting. Better from 2024.
