Vajra Barolo Bricco Delle Viole 2016 (Magnum)

The 2016 Barolo Bricco delle Viole is going to need a few years to emerge, but it has all the qualities to develop into a truly special wine. Dark red/purplish fruit, hard candy, mint, lavender and sweet spice give the 2016 striking inner perfume. On the palate, the 2016 is a tightly wound, classically austere Barolo that will especially delight readers with traditionally leaning palates. In this late-ripening vintage, there is a great balance of structure, aromatics and mid-palate sweetness. I absolutely loved it.

It’s floral, but firm, a pretty and seductive nature with a backbone of cold steel. Red fruit, sweet spices, mint and liquorice, thyme and lavender, and a subtle sweet earthiness. Finesse with flavour, a heap of ‘mineral’ stuff, coated with pliant brick dust tannin, the feel of and taste of raw almonds, and a very long precise finish. This will take plenty of time to reveal itself and, indeed, it’s almost going backwards as it sits in the glass. It’s a beautiful wine of energy and structure that’s sure to thrill with bottle age.
