Claudio Alario is solid. Unflashy and charming he is the embodiment of his own wines which have more to them than immediately meets the eye. The winery dates back to the 1900’s when Claudio’s grandfather was supplying grapes to other wineries. We are in Diano d’Alba, a small rural village, located on soft green hills. Three generations later Claudio had the conviction to produce very fine wines of his own from the family’s prime vineyards. He is respected as one of the finest producers in Diano D’Alba. Having trained at the Istituto Superiore di Agraria. His wines are invariably beautifully made, marrying profundity and richness to accessibility; tannins and acidity to ripe fruit.
A lively ruby-purple color. It is constantly ranked among the best wines of this style. Generous, multi-layered scent reminds us of small stone fruit and mulberry, with a touch of elegant blueberries. It is a massive body with excellent tannin structure. Muscular, spicy, juicy, with lively acidity, seductively drinkable, with a velvety tip on the finish.
