Wine Region: Piedmont, Italy
Barolo Albe opens up with a bright, expressive nose. Red
currant, cherries, macerated strawberries and mint are interlaced with floral tones
and hints of rosehip, rhubarb, red fig, hawthorn, lavender and licorice.
The palate is generous, layered and youthful, with ripe tannins and a classic finish
on tones of marasca cherry.
About the Winery
The initials of the winery G.D. Vajra stand for Giuseppe Domenico, Aldo Vajra's father, who signed the founding documents of the winery in 1972 and is located in Vergne, the highest village in the western Barolo area. The Nebbiolo, Dolcetto and Barbera varieties are cultivated there, as well as the Freisa and even the white Riesling grapes, which were important in the past, in strict compliance with fundamental ethical values.
