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.
Fratelli Alessandria is one of the most long-standing wineries in Verduno, having already been operational around the middle of the 1800s, at the time of the birth of Barolo.
Verduno: spicy elegance
Verduno is located at the northern tip of the Barolo zone and is the closest village to the River Tanaro. It enjoys a special microclimate, influenced by air currents from the river. This, together with the soil composition and all the other elements of the terroir, clearly characterises the wines.

We believe that the beauty of wine is a matter of relationships: great wine would not exist without the taster who is able to understand it. We open the doors of our winery to enthusiasts and those who are curious and want to get to know us better.
