G.D. Vajra Barolo Albe 2010 750ml

G.D. Vajra Barolo Albe 2010 750ml

Nebbiolo from Piedmont, Italy

Points     |     AG: 94
Cellar/Tasting Notes
A true Barolo di Barolo, Albe is a blend of grapes from three different vineyards at three different altitudes. Every morning the sun rises from one vineyard to another creating a symphony for the senses just like the wine produced from these blocks.  It is a Barolo of great character and refined balance, where beautiful aromas, refined equilibrium and ripe tannins, come together in perfect harmony.

Aromas of red fruits and plums,  flowers, pine needles and brush-wood are evident. Albe is a harmony of sophisticated and delicate flavors supported by an elegant acidity and ripe tannins.
Antonio Galloni- Vinous (AG): 94
"The 2010 Barolo Albe is a real stunner. Brilliant and finely sculpted on the palate, the 2010 dazzles from the very first taste. Expressive, floral notes meld into bright red fruit, mint and crushed berries in a vibrant, striking Barolo endowed with pure energy and class. In most vintages, the Albe is juicy and fruit-driven, but in 2010 is the wine's minerality that is front and center. Aldo Vajra opted to bottle the 2010 a little bit earlier than normal in order to preserve freshness, a decision that worked beautifully here. The Barolo Albe is made from three parcels; Fossati, Castello della Volta and Costa di Vergne. The 2010 Barolo vintages is rightly drawing a lot of attention. The Albe should be relatively easy to find at a fair price. Simply put, the 2010 Barolo Albe is not to be missed."
