About | We love the entire range from the Vajra family, from humble Barbera to their single-vineyard cru wines. A blend of parcels, their Albe bottling represents the best value in Barolo we've found to date.
Tasting Notes | “A tribute to local tradition, the 2014 Barolo Albe represents an assembly of fruit from various vineyard plots throughout the area. Winemaking is classic in approach with a 25-day maceration period and aging in large Slavonian oak casks. This vintage shows silky, fine lines and a more accessible approach for near and medium-term drinking. I would recommend a few more years of bottle aging, however, to allow the wine the time to grow in texture and mouthfeel.” WA
