Crissante Alessandria


Alberto, Luca and Michele from Crissante


Crissante follows a typical story of the region: farmers who sold their grapes before deciding to make and bottle their own wine, here starting in the late fifties.

The estate is now well established, famous for its single-vineyard bottlings, all from La Morra. The wines are scented, fleshy and rich with particular finesse.

2013 BAROLO CAPALOT (CRIS46213A)
Capalot is a natural amphitheatre facing south, with sand and clay soils. It gives an elegant wine, completely at ease, showing soft strawberry and blackcurrant fruit, a fine tannic structure, some tea-leaf notes and salty minerals coming through on the long fruity finish. Quite lovely.

2013 BAROLO GALINA (CRIS50213A)
Just below Capalot on the same hillside, the tiny Galina vineyard has a higher clay content, and is home to some nearly 100-year-old vines. It is very elegant and fine, and showing some new wood. The fruit is on the darker side ' more black cherry than strawberry ' and there is a fine pure mineral streak to complement the silky tannins. The finish is rich, long and fruity.
