Parker über: Barolo Albe

-- Parker: If you were to consider the entire portfolio of wines made in the Barolo appellation, this wine always stands in its own little corner. Albe is a brand on its own, and it represents one of the most versatile, accessible and well-priced Baroli to emerge from the appellation. The G.D. Vajra 2016 Barolo Albe sets off on the right foot, offering forthcoming intensity with forest fruit, wild cherry, crushed stone and blue flowers. Winemaking is straightforward in stainless steel, and the wine finishes in Slavonian oak casks. Some 40,000 bottles are hitting the market now. 94/100


Wine Enthusiast über: Barolo Albe

-- Wine Enthusiast: Aromas of woodland berry, new leather, camphor and pressed rose waft out of the glass. Juicy and delicious, the chewy palate doles out succulent Marasca cherry, crushed raspberry and white pepper. Polished tannins and fresh acidity give it an immediate appeal but this also offers several years of drinking pleasure. Drink through 2028. Editor's choice. 94/100


Wine Spectator über: Barolo Albe

-- Wine Spectator: Elegant and expressive, this red evokes cherry, raspberry and floral notes, aligned to a refined structure. This is balanced and leaves an aftertaste of fruit, tobacco and iron. Best from 2023 through 2043. 3,300 cases made. 94/100


Suckling über: Barolo Albe

-- Suckling: Such a delicious expression of the balanced and drinkable 2016 harvest with fresh red cherries, strawberries and rose perfume. The palate has bright, fine and fleshy texture with a super fine, chalky and plush delivery of ripe, supple and concentrated cherries. So complete. Drink or hold. 93/100

Zwischen La Morra und Barolo gelegen, sitzt das familiengeführte Weingut Vajra auf den blaugrauen Mergelböden des Tortoniums, die duftige Eleganz und florale Finesse in den Weinen befördern. Der perfekte Ausdruck des Bodens kann aber nur gelingen, wenn die Weinberge darauf eingestimmt sind. Familie...
