$79.99

Barolo, Piedmont, Italy

Made From: Nebbiolo

Tastes Like: Rose Petal, Cherry, Iron, Licorice, Tobacco

A highly-rated Barolo from iconic producer, G.D. Vajra. Classic aromas of rose petals and tobacco waft from the glass, leading into flavors of cherry, iron, licorice, and herbs. Leathery tannins lead into a long, pleasing finish. This will continue to age beautifully over the next couple of decades.

“Bricco delle Viole, a cru that rises up to 1,575 feet on the Barolo commune’s western edge, has clear views of the Alps. This wine channels some of the Alpine coolness in its elegant feel: Vibrant acidity propels the wine’s spiced cherry and plum fruit while lush, polished tannins draw it out through a long finish.” – 95 Points, Wine & Spirits

“You’ll find enticing scents of rose, violet, woodland berry, tobacco and a heady whiff of pine on this fragrant, full-bodied red. The juicy, delicious palate shows focus and intensity, doling out succulent raspberry, ripe red cherry, blood orange, licorice and baking spice framed in polished tannins. It’s already showing beautifully but will also offer years of enjoyment.” – 95 Points, Wine Enthusiast

“Enticing aromas and flavors of plum, cherry, iron and menthol are folded harmoniously into the lush texture and broad tannins of this long and vibrant red, with licorice, mineral and tobacco elements lingering….” – 94 Points, Wine Spectator

“The 2015…is a delicate and pure expression of Nebbiolo. The wine shows its naked beauty with pride, provocatively semi-dressed in lacy, floral aromas of wild rose and pressed violets. At this young age, the wine exhibits a gentle mix of fruity and floral characteristics that merge into the bouquet with intrepidness. The fruit from this vineyard within the Barolo township has maintained its freshness and crispness despite the heat of the 2015 growing season….” – 94 Points, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
