Jeb Dunnuck über: Barolo Coste di Rose DOCG

-- Jeb Dunnuck: The 2017 Barolo Coste di Rose has bright aromatics of candied raspberry, apricot, anise, and dusty earth. The palate is medium-bodied, with fine tannins and notes of dried wild strawberry, fresh roses, and mineral-rich earth. This wine is open and inviting, while maintaining freshness and drive. Drink 2024-2040. 94/100

Parker über: Barolo Coste di Rose DOCG

-- Parker: With fruit from higher-elevation vineyards in the village of Barolo, the 2017 Barolo Coste di Rose is quite elegantly downplayed and fragile. The wine reveals wild berry, cassis and lots of blue flower or lilac. A pretty mineral note recalls crushed limestone and is present through the long and polished mouthfeel. This wine overperforms, considering the challenges of this vintage that saw extreme weather, from spring frost to scorching summer temperatures. These vineyard sites performed better than most. Some 4,800 bottles were released. 94/100

Galloni über: Barolo Coste di Rose DOCG

-- Galloni: The 2017 Barolo Coste di Rose is pretty, supple and inviting. Some of the tannins need to resolve, but this is a young Barolo after all. The Coste di Rose doesn't have the sensuality of the Albe or the pedigree of the Viole, but it nevertheless has so much to give. Crushed flowers, sweet red berry fruit, mint, crushed rocks and sage are some of the many notes that linger. I won't be surprised if the 2017 is even better than this note suggests once it softens a bit. 93/100

Suckling über: Barolo Coste di Rose DOCG

-- Suckling: Sweet-strawberry, flower, iodine and stone aromas follow through to a full body with firm, polished tannins that show finesse and form. Give it a year or two to soften and come together. Try after 2023. 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...
