If you were to consider the entire portfolio of wines made in the Barolo appellation, this wine always stands in its own little corner. Albe is a brand on its own, and it represents one of the most versatile, accessible and well-priced Barolo to emerge from the appellation. Approachable but will benefit cellaring.
A beautifully balanced barolo, 'Le Albe' has elegant, rose petal perfumes, dark berry fruit and a perfectly judged equilibrium of tannin and acidity. The incredibly long finish is an indicator of the exceptional quality produced by Aldo Vaira.
