It's worth having an alfa experienced ear listen to it, it may just be the variator as you presume, bt worn shells do this to and as the oil pressure builds they quieten up till one say you end up with a leg out of bed, If the timing belt is near 3 years old though have the parts replaced along with the water pump. (£350 now or £1500 when the belt/conrod goes).
