Verduno plays an important role in Barolo as it was once the epicenter for the region and credited with creating the first dry Nebbiolo wines that we know today. Its unofficial slogan as “the king of wines, and the wine of kings” was born out of the preference for these Verduno wines among the reigning monarchies. The Alessandria’s have deep roots in the region dating back to this monarchic mid-19th century era. It seems Verduno has been reclaiming its past glory with each vintage.
‘San Lorenzo’ is located in Verduno, facing south at a slightly lower altitude, between 720 and 880 feet above sea level. Here the mineral influence of the “marne di Sant’Agata” comes through, with more precise floral aromas and a more linear, yet deeply elegant, profile.
