About

The heart of the winery lies in the large 18th century house with its understated yet majestic lines, very close to the historic centre of the village of Verduno.

Gian Battista, his wife Flavia, brother Alessandro and son Vittore are the proud custodians of the family’s winemaking tradition and passion, which date back over a century, and represent the seventh and eighth generations of winemakers (the first three generations as Fratelli Dabbene and then as Fratelli Alessandria following a marriage which took place in around 1870).

The winery vinifies only estate grown grapes and has maintained a family dimension. These qualities make it possible to establish a direct and “personal” relationship with the individual vineyards and barrels, an invisible but important connection that we hope will reach and inspire consumers when they drink our wines. - Winery Note

 

Tasting Notes

I expect we all now realise, that I’m the leading authority on Pelaverga in Australia? And aside from that, I buy these wines by the six, and they don’t last too long in the cellar, just saying, Also, I love Verduno, it’s one of the best villages to visit.

Strawberry, raspberry, lots of pepper, a bit of ozone too, Light to medium-body, fresh, strawberry and spice, a little ‘mineral’ thing happening, dusty tannin, and a peppery finish of fine length, It’s classic. It’s fun. It’s Pelaverga, and if you dig that frisky red fruit and pepper thing, then you are set to go. This is a more spicy, peppery version of the grape, but so yum.
