Barolo "Albe" GD Vajra 2012
92 points - Wine Spectator
From the absolutely charming and humble Vajra family, Albe is a true "Barolo di Barolo", a Barolo blended from vineyards only in the Barolo commune. Fosatti, Coste de Vergne and La Volta all have different southern exposures and add distinct qualities to the wine, they yield a complex and rich Barolo that will age gracefully, but is an absolute pleasure to drink now. Tannins are round, aromatics complex and the fruit is delicious. In fact, this is one of our most approachable and open Barolos in the portfolio, and one of our best values.
