Deeply profound nose, with layers of spice, black cherry, woodsy spice, and camphor. This really is very precise and perfumed on the nose with lovely floral top notes, though in the mouth it is rather assertively fruity for the vintage but not in the frooty sense, with some tarry notes adding some detail to the core of wild strawberry and wild cherry fruit. On the backend this turns a little woodsy aromatically. This is relatively open though it is noticeably less complex and interesting on the palate than the nose. 91pts

Very pretty and perfumed on the nose with super wild cherry fruit and wild raspberry in alcohol aromas over nice low mineral, wild flower and wild herb notes. Just a hint of oak, gentle but it's there. Soft on entry, clean and fresh with lots of wild strawberry and lightly herbal fruit that has an attractive sweet/tart component to it. Tannins are quite soft, and the finish a bit on the short side. Elegant and refined with a very fresh and attractive flavor profile. 90pts

Vajra's 2008 Barolo Bricco delle Viole is drop-dead gorgeous. Rose petals, flowers, spices and mint are some of the many, many nuances that unfold as this gracious Barolo opens up in the glass. The 2008 is at once light on its feet yet rich, deep and resonant, expressing the myriad contradictions that are at the heart of what makes Barolo one of the world's truly icon wines. Today the tannins are a little firm, of course, but there is an inner sweetness to the 2008 that is compelling. This is a fabulous showing from the Vajra family. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2038. A pungent, sweet sawdust nose is followed by candied cherry in this light-weight yet intense Barolo. The raspberry and cherry fruit emerges with air. Displays fine structure, showing freshness and length. Best from 2017 through 2035. 1,176 cases made. -BS ** SOLD OUT **

This opens with jammy aromas of blackberry and strawberry followed by a streamlined feel on the palate. It delivers a firm wall of young tannins that need more time to age.
