The Barolo Albe is meant to provide short-to-medium term pleasure. And so it does. Thirty minutes in a decanter and this is just singing with all the tar, roses, blueberries, minerals and truffled earth that you could ask for. It's also capable of medium-term aging if you wish. For my part, I'm drinking another bottle of this come the weekend.
From Parker's Wine Advocate: "This is one of the most accessible and trustworthy wines you can buy from Piedmont. Keeping in line with past vintages, the G.D. Vajra 2017 Barolo Albe opens to medium concentration and a very expressive or fruit-forward bouquet. This hot-climate 2017 edition shows a little more ripeness and roundness as is to be expected, but these results are a safe bet nonetheless. Cherry and raspberry aromas are followed by blue flower and pressed violets."
