Barolo Albe - 2019


Full & RichAge worthyWeekend prizelevel of funkiness

From the illustrious, family-owned winery, G.D. Vajra, a benchmark of the natural wine world and among the first to adopt organic winemaking in the region this is classic in all the right ways and Barolo in all its splendour.

Made from three high-altitude sites in the Albe, its classic beauty lies in ‘the caress of the sun that rises three times every morning,’ an especially romantic nod to the sunlight dappled across the differing slopes. Aged for 18 months in Slovenian oak barrels, this is an especially elegant sip with a robust florality and evocative fruit and spice. Velvetee in texture, but rich & deep-fruited with a wink of fresh potpourri, marasca cherry, rhubarb, ripe fig, black liquorice, orange-rhubarb jam, lemon verbena & mint.

Create the occasion necessary to warrant opening this by delivering an impassioned acceptance speech for an award you’ve never heard of & drinking this to celebrate because you’re a winner, baby.
