Wine Enthusiast, 94 Points 

"Lovely Nebbiolo aromas of rose, violet, red berry and botanical herb shape the fragrant nose. Smooth and savory, the elegant palate features juicy red cherry, crushed raspberry and cake spice alongside polished tannins. Fresh acidity keeps it balanced. It's already drinking beautifully but also promises years of pleasure. Enjoy through 2030." 

Wine Advocate, 93+ Points 

"This wine consistently delivers one of the greatest values to be found in Italian wine. The G.D. Vajra 2018 Barolo Albe has all its cards in play as an immediately enjoyable and extremely food-friendly Nebbiolo. This really is the top of the category in that sense. With straightforward winemaking (fermentation is in steel and aging in large Slavonian oak casks), the wine offers bold cherry, wild plum and plenty of fragrant blue flower and violet. This vintage has the added benefit of softly textured richness" 

James Suckling, 92 Points 

"Aromas of ripe raspberries and dark spice follow through to a medium-to full-bodied palate, with some fine, fruit and spice-coated tannin and a medium finish that firms up at the end." 

Wine Spectator, 92 Points 

"A taut, sinewy red, this keeps cherry, strawberry, floral and underbrush flavors under a wrap of tannins for now. Overall, the components are well-proportioned, and this ends with complexity, harmony and length."  

Decanter, 91 Points 

"Albe is GD Vajra’s most classic Barolo in the sense that it is a blend of multiple sites: Coste di Vergne, La Volta and Fossati are all within the township of Barolo and sit at high altitudes. This wine is characterised by its pretty, becoming aromas and smooth suppleness. Alpine herbs and white pepper lace the predominantly floral profile and the palate is replete with crunchy summer berries. Don’t hesitate to pull the cork of this affable Barolo."
