The Wine: Barolo Albe DOCG 2017 Winemaker's notes: "Our tribute to the Masters of tradition, Albe is the blend of high elevation Barolo vineyards. As these blocks lay on various slopes with different exposures, we have the chance to see three sunrises (Albe) every day. 2017 is a radiant vintage with beautiful early balance and yet great aging potential. The 2017 Barolo DOCG Albe aged for 18 months in large Slavonian oak casks of 40, 50, and 75 hL. The wines were racked once, in the summer of 2018, and blended right before bottling. 2017 Barolo Albe opens up with a bright, expressive nose. Red currant, cherries, macerated strawberries, and mint are interlaced with floral tones and hints of rosehip, rhubarb, red fig, hawthorn, lavender, and licorice. The palate is generous, layered, and youthful, with ripe tannins and a classic finish on tones of marasca cherry." The Producer: G.D. Vajra, The Region: Piedmont
