G. D. Vajra Barolo Albe 2009


SKU 28705


Albe is "Barolo di Barolo", a Barolo blended from vineyards only in the Barolo comune. Fosatti, Coste de Vergne and La Volta all have different southern exposures and add distinct qualities to the wine, they yield a complex and rich Barolo that will age gracefully for another 3 to 5 years, but is a an absolute pleasure to drink now. Tannins are round, aromatics complex, alluring and the fruit is delicious. In fact this is one of our most approachable and open Barolos in the portfolio and one of our best values.

Wine SpectatorLavender comes to mind when smelling this fragrant red, with flavors of cherry, raspberry, flowers and spice. Elegant despite the firm tannins, featuring a lingering aftertaste of tobacco and underbrush. Best from 2016 through 2028.
