2010 Barolo Le Albe, G. D. Vajra, Piedmont

The 2010 Barolo Albe is a real stunner. Brilliant and finely sculpted on the palate, the 2010 dazzles from the very first taste. Expressive, floral notes meld into bright red fruit, mint and crushed berries in a vibrant, striking Barolo endowed with pure energy and class. In most vintages, the Albe is juicy and fruit-driven, but in 2010 is the wine's minerality that is front and center. Aldo Vajra opted to bottle the 2010 a little bit earlier than normal in order to preserve freshness, a decision that worked beautifully here. The Barolo Albe is made from three parcels; Fossati, Castello della Volta and Costa di Vergne. The 2010 Barolo vintages is rightly drawing a lot of attention. The Albe should be relatively easy to find at a fair price. Simply put, the 2010 Barolo Albe is not to be missed.
