Approachable now with 2013’s riper red cherry notes. If it were less expensive, I’d fill up my cellar with this stuff. Certainly can age, but this is a balanced and elegant Nebbiolo that you can decant and enjoy now.

Maddie has a great nose. Smelled the 2013 Albe - "this smells like pink roses" and the 2013 Bricco del Viole - "this smells like red roses and red cherries". Francesca signed this one for her. 21st Bday bottle (rating is for 2013)

Really singing right now, though very young.

I had not had this since I was in Piedmont with the wine maker years ago. It’s just terrific now! Soft and approachable with real depth and character.

A visit to the Vajra winery in Vergne, a very young wine but has big potential give it 10 years

More infanticide in the name of market research. Everything you could want in a young Barolo. Nice floral nose, sensual red fruit tones with an almost creamy texture, and silky tannin into a long finish. Utterly beguiling.

Way way way too young. One dimensional at this point. Don’t think about this for 10 yrs. (it wasn’t my choice to pull this cork!)
