G.D. Vajra Albe Barolo Nebbiolo 2013

$39.99$34.99

93 Points, Wine Spectator: "Aromas of fresh-cut hay and grass shade the flavors of cherry, black currant, violet and tobacco in this elegant, taut red. A little compact now on the finish, yet should stretch out with some age. Best from 2021 through 2032."

By now I have run out of superlatives for Vajra, from whom you will find some of the finest, artisan wines being made in Piedmont today. At a time when prices for so many wines are skyrocketing out of control, Vajra’s prices are a breath of fresh air. The Barolos are made in contemporary traditional style, with longish fermentations and aging in cask. Vajra’s 2013 Barolo Albe is beautifully perfumed, sensual, and expressive in this vintage. The style of the Albe has always favored a more succulent expression of Nebbiolo yet there is an element of restraint in the 2013 that is hugely appealing. The Albe may be the single best value in Barolo today. As for the 2013, don't miss it! (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, Feb 2017)

Light, expressed fruit and pigment with a touch of wet mineral finesse. Ever so slightly accented acidity on that back palate and beautiful, perfumed retrogusto. A favorite wine and a gorgeous vintage.

2013 Barolo from gdvajra and a classic from Gene Clark. Spring is easing into summer before our eyes.

Rose, sweet red fruit, incense, delicate perfume underlining the fruit. Distinctive nebbiolo texture.

Took a day to open up. It’s a Vajra Barolo. What more is there to say?

Crisp tannins with cherry overtones and a wonderful finish. Still a very young Barolo that will likely be better with age
