G.D. Vajra Barolo Albe 2006
citrus,lemon lime,floral+grapery. sharper bubbles,citrus+floral,some grape too,less delicate finish
Wonderful nose of deep dark red berries and some black fruit hints. Upon swirling, some sweet, popcicle tones. Resinous wine on the palate. Beautiful juice, pretty and well rounded fruit with just the right amount of tannin and well structured. Leaves a floral, delicate berry finish. Great!
Lovely color. on the nose dark fruits. Swirling for awhile and sweet perfumey notes gently rise..Light tannins and dark fruit on the palate. Very nice, and the finish was medium with lots of berries and a hint of citrus. It seems this wine is very close to maturity at this young age. Would highly recommend but do not lay away.

Love this wine!!! Hope the price does not change.
External Reviews for G.D. Vajra Barolo Albe
The 2006 Barolo Albe is made from vineyards in Fossati, La Volta and Coste di Vergne, all in the town of Barolo itself. The Albe is a beautiful, supple Barolo graced with exquisite fruit and a plump, juicy personality. It can be enjoyed with a minimum of bottle age or also cellared for at least a decade. This is a marvelous effort from Vajra and is the equivalent of the top wine at many other estates. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024.
The 2005 Barolo Albe caresses the palate with a soft core of perfumed fruit. This generous, open Barolo isn't likely to be a long-term ager, but it offers tons of class and elegance. The finish is round and impeccably refined. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2019.
