A powerful Cru Barolo from a highly regarded family producer. The Gramolere vineyard is located in Monforte d'Alba, where the family holding lies on slightly sandy limestone with a South-South West aspect. The result is a wine of great intensity and brooding fruit, with complex savoury undertones. Perhaps the most masculine cru in the Alessandria range, the Gramolere offers a great deal of pleasure and potential for the medium to longer term.


97/100 Monica Larner, Parker's Wine Advocate (2016 Vintage)
"If you consider the Barolo playbook at Fratelli Alessandria, the 2016 Barolo Gramolere takes the intensity and power up one more notch. You get black fruit and blackberry, but there is enough vibrant red fruit to keep this wine aligned with the more elegant and traditional side of Barolo. The wine shows compelling infinities with both the powerful and the elegant side of Nebbiolo. There are noticeable mineral notes and even a spot of savoury salinity. However, Gramolere definitely has the power and inner grit to withstand long cellar aging. Only 7,000 bottles were made. — This is by far the finest set of wines I have tasted from Fratelli Alessandria, and I cannot recommend this estate enough for value-wine seekers and collectors alike. There is something for every Nebbiolo-loving palate in this portfolio, and all these wines hit the ball straight out of the park. Congratulations. Drink 2024 – 2050."


93-96/100 Antonio Galloni, Vinous (2016 Vintage)
"The 2016 Barolo Gramolere is another super-classic Barolo from Fratelli Alessandria. Searing in its intensity, the 2016 is endowed with tremendous energy and pure cut. Black cherry, lavender, mint, anise and crushed rocks infuse the 2016 with striking layers of complexity and nuance. It, too, is likely to require a number of years to be at its best."


96/100 Kerin O'Keefe, Wine Enthusiast (2016 Vintage)
"Pressed rose, camphor, woodland berry, dark spice and new leather are just some of the aromas you'll find on this fragrant red. Radiant, structured and boasting finesse and depth, the palate delivers raspberry compote, mature morello cherry, cinnamon and menthol framed in taut refined tannins. It's well balanced, with bright acidity. Drink 2024 – 2036."


95+/100 Gary Walsh, The Wine Front, September 2020 (2016 Vintage)
"Oomph. Dark cherry, dried roses, menthol, suede leather, spice and earth. Distinctly full-bodied, flush with dark cherry and dark raspberry flavour, sage and earth, stony tannin, freshness with cool menthol, and a long sage and spice finish. It’s potent, but has clarity, if that makes sense. Needs a fair bit of time to come around."

    5 star review  Absolutely fantastic experience with Vino Fino for our wedding. They do offer a free chiller trailer with large orders but unfortunately someone got in just before us to have that on our wedding weekend. The staff are lovely and helpful, we had wonderful interactions with Paul, Dean and James. We did not have any idea of what we wanted to supply to our guests but the recommendations made were top notch and the guests loved them. The amount recommended worked out well for us, they work with your budget and they have a buy back option if you do not use all the wine. Would recommend for events or if you do not know wines like us and you are looking for recommendations.

  • 5 star review  Excellent service. We wanted to bring wine from NZ homw to Europe, but shipping rates were so high and shipping times were so long that we decided to take it on the plane instead. The team here helped us package up 18 bottles of different wines we had tasted at wineries in Central Ontago and Malbourgh for a flight and everything arrived safely to Europe. Many, many thanks. We have some happy friends and family now!

The order was delivered the same day and because it was a Christchurch address there was no charge for delivery. I will certainly be using Vino Fino again.
