This is a lot of wine for the $$. Lovely rose petal aromas. Delicious. Dark fruit balanced by classic Barolo bitterness.

Sweet red fruits laced with dried plums, wild flowers and amazingly high acid. Yes #nebbiolo you win again! #vajra #barolo

2010 GD Vajra's ALBE Barolo--structure w such finesse. A theme I find in the majority of the family's wines. This Barolo, structured, yet feminine with a stitch of cherry & violet. Just yum! #certifiablydelish

No fireworks, but all the form of Barolo. Lots of delicious red plum/bing cherry Nebbiolo fruit. I wish I had more to see if it turns into something more than the merely delicious
