Albe is “Barolo di Barolo”, a Barolo blended from vineyards only in the Barolo comune. 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 for another three to five years, but is an absolute pleasure to drink now. Tannins are round, aromatics complex and the fruit is delicious.

Description

91 points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate Outer quote mark A tribute to local tradition, the 2014 Barolo Albe represents an assembly of fruit from various vineyard plots throughout the area. Winemaking is classic in approach with a 25-day maceration period and aging in large Slavonian oak casks. This vintage shows silky, fine lines and a more accessible approach for near and medium-term drinking. I would recommend a few more years of bottle aging, however, to allow the wine the time to grow in texture and mouthfeel. (ML) Inner quote mark (6/2018)

91 points Wine & Spirits Outer quote mark The Vajra family blends fruit from their high-elevation vineyards to produce this wine, an attractive, dark-fruited Barolo loaded with fresh herbs and zippy spices. It’s firm yet juicy, ready to decant now for a braised pork shoulder. Inner quote mark (12/2018)

91 points Wine Enthusiast Outer quote mark Aromas of rose, crushed mint, red berry and dark spice mingle together with an earthy whiff of leather on this fragrant Barolo. The vibrant, almost ethereal palate delivers juicy Marasca cherry, star anise and an almost salty note alongside taut, polished tannins and racy acidity. (KO) Inner quote mark (10/2018)  91 points Wine Spectator Outer quote mark Cherry, leather, spice and leafy underbrush flavors walk the line between sweet fruit and bitter tannins. Finds balance in concert with the delicate frame. Fine length. Best from 2022 through 2038. (BS) Inner quote mark (2/2019)

90 points Vinous Outer quote mark Vajra’s 2014 Barolo Albe is a pretty wine, but it is also a touch slender. Part of that is, of course, attributable to the vintage, but in recent years the Albe has been stylistically more similar to the other Barolos in the range than it was at the outset. Suggestions of sweet tobacco, cinnamon, dried flowers and black cherry are layered in this supple, easygoing Barolo. Drink it over the next handful of years. (AG) Inner quote mark (2/2018)
