Vajra Barolo Bricco Delle Viole DOCG 2014

$195.00

“The 2014 Barolo Bricco delle Viole is positively stunning. There are many things about this wine that are super-impressive, but what stands out most is how soft and silky the tannins are. Because of that, the 2014 is much more approachable than it usually is, and yet also conveys the feeling of translucence that is such a signature of this site and wine. I am not sure I have ever tasted a young Bricco delle Viole with this much purity of fruit. The 2014 is total class. Don’t miss it.” 96 Points Antonio Galloni, Vinous

“One of my favourite crus in all of Barolo, is BdV. Beautiful perfume, red fruits, firm and high acid, yet finds balance, with what you might call ‘a slightly nervy appeal’. Mouth-perfume too. Energy and emery tannin, excellent length. Something of a wet leather character in the mix. Very good for 2014 and a ‘classic’, kind of old school thing going on, that will likely chrysalise as it ages, becoming more translucent and finer again. Some licorice in there too, which is always lovely. Vineyard heart is beating strongly, even under stressful conditions.” 94+ Points Gary Walsh, The Wine Front
