- Closure: Cork
Vajra's 2013 Barolo Albe is beautifully perfumed, sensual and expressive in this vintage, with a bit less overt fruit and more aromatic/structural intensity than is often the case. The style of the Albe has always favored a more succulent expression of Nebbiolo that is quite different from the single-vineyard wines, but the 2013 suggests Vajra may be moving the Albe closer in line stylistically to their other Barolos, which I think is a positive. In any event, there is an element of restraint in the 2013 that is hugely appealing. The Albe is a blend of fruit from Fossati, Coste di Vergne and La Volta aged in 75 hectoliter casks. The Albe may be the single best value in Barolo today. As for the 2013, don't miss it!
Antonio Galloni - Vinous
Dark raspberry and cherry, spice, dried roses, almost a wet earth/clay sort of smell, which is lovely. Medium bodied, clear clean fruit and acidity, savoury elements of leather and earth, quite a bit of the old ‘minerality’ here, and a fine long finish coated in brick dust tannin. Charming and age-worthy. This is a terrific Albe.
