G.D. Vajra Barolo Albe 2012

A great classic, a Barolo grape from Barolo village, large barrels only, 36 months, the result of three vineyards assembled - La Volta, Costa di Vergne and Fossati - so, three different terroir, different for exposure and altitude.
The result? Beautiful, of course.

Nice ruby transparent, for a rich and harmonious nose: berries, rose and violet, red fruit - strawberry and raspberry, cherry and plum - and more than a spicy hint.

Balanced mouth and very consistent with the nose, with the addition of the red orange and rhubarb notes. Nit and velvet tannin, structure, but without encumbrances.
It stretches well in length, with a final phrasing of citrus and cloves.

All the tough character of the older brother - so to speak - Bricco delle Viole.
