Gianfranco Alessandria

Barolo Nebbiolo 2011

Tar and roses and dark plums: this is a beautiful bottle of wine. With medium acidity, the wine begs to be served at a heavy meal! — 10 days ago

Case Basse di Gianfranco Soldera

Toscana IGT Sangiovese 2008

This was was youthful & structured still mostly primary that will need more time. Very enjoyable but not sure if it will reach the level of the 04. — 22 days ago

Gianfranco Fino

'Es' Primitivo di Manduria

Served double-blind. First impression: “What the hell is this?!” Umami, German chocolate cake, flower shop…opulent in ever sense of the word. Dark fruit for dayzzz…with a sort of raisinated character that slips in at the finish. Remarkable depth. There’s also a black pepper thing on the very back end. Hefty structure with rather remarkable acid considering how bulky this wine is and, to be frank, rather necessary considering the 16% abv. Finish is sooooo long. I figured some sort of Valpolicella Ripasso or even an Amarone (neither are wines I drink a whole lot of but seem to fit the profile) and obviously from a good producer. When this was revealed, I can’t say I was shocked only because the Primitivo di Manduria also fits the description. That being said, this was my first experience with Gianfranco Fino’s wines and it was certainly a hedonistic treat. — 6 days ago

Case Basse di Gianfranco Soldera

Riserva Soldera Case Basse Brunello di Montalcino 2004

Battle of the Soldera’s with the 04 being the groups favorite showing lots of depth, floral, spice & elegance. Great vintage for Soldera that should age for many years. — 22 days ago
