Vajra Barolo Bricco Delle Viole DOCG 2015

$210.00

“Having now tasted a reasonable number of Barolo from 2015, I feel a little more confident about affirming its high quality. Perhaps not the most long lived vintage, but good tannin, approachable supple nature, and surprising freshness. Red cherry, strawberry, aniseed, fair old perfume, light dusting of spice and flowers. Medium-bodied, deft, fresh strawberry, brightness and energy here, with fine almost silky tannin that’s very persistent, super length and a wonderful sense of composure and class throughout. Sneaking a second glass and coming back, it looks even better again, with a mineral and tea thing happening. Wonderful.” 96+ Points Gary Walsh, The Wine Front

“The flagship Barolo Bricco delle Viole is quite understated and gracious in 2015. Medium in body, with the persistent tannins that are so typical of this site, the 2015 is lithe, focused and full of energy. The warm vintage notwithstanding, in 2015, Vajra’s Bricco delle Viole is distinctly sinewy and tense. It will offer considerable appeal to readers who find some of the other 2015 Barolos too open and giving in their youthful stage. Kirsch, rose petal, mint and chalky notes build into a finely cut finish. Time in the glass softens some of the youthful, austere contours, but this remains a 2015 Barolo that needs time in bottle to be at its very best.” 93+ Points Antonio Galloni, Vinous
