Description

It’s interesting that people fall over themselves to buy Barolo from single crus, and yet, many of the best wines come from a range of different ones. This edition of Albe® is right up there with the 2010 and 2013 in terms of quality.

Red cherry, raspberry, roses, almond biscotti, mint and exotic spices. It’s medium-bodied, fresh and bright in red fruit flavour, but with a savoury tobacco and dried herb edge. Tannin is firm, with a fine chalk dust texture, and clean acidity drives it along so nicely. Finish is firm and long, with a pretty perfume as it goes. Charming, yet serious. It’s a really good release. 94+ Points - Gary Walsh, The Wine Front
