Spotlight on: Alessandro Salvano | 3-pack

$180.00 $180.00

Alessandro was born into the vinous world with both of his grandparents being winemakers.

After finishing his studies at the Scuola Enologica in Alba, he went to work at numerous addresses in Barolo and Barbaresco—most notably three years at the renowned Borgogno.

In 2019 Alessandro begun making his own wine, purchasing some fruit from his uncle’s vineyard in Montelupo Albese, an unprestigious ‘outside-the-Barolo-zone’ region to the east of Serralunga, inspiring the 'Drink Wine, Not Labels' mantra.

Freshness, vivacity and exuberant energy define the wines and being only the third vintage, the future is incredibly bright here.

2021 ‘Drink Wines Not Labels' Chardonnay

100% whole bunch, slightly skinsy chardonnay macerated for ten days then raised in stainless steel. A story of waxy, pithy texture best enjoyed alongside something from the sea.

2021 ‘Drink Wines Not Labels' Nebbiolo

100% whole bunch nebbiolo. In the mouth it's fine-boned and filigreed, but not without hallmark nebbiolo tannin, albeit approachable in its youth. 

2021 ‘Drink Wine Not Labels’ Dolcetto

100% whole bunch dolcetto. Incredible aromatic intensity, absolutely leaping from the glass! This is refreshing, dangerously moreish dolcetto with the perfect amount of rusticity.
