G. D. Vajra Barolo Bricco della Viole 2011
|Region||Italy, Piedmont, Barolo|
|Brand||G. D. Vajra|
Wine SpectatorGraphite and iron aromas lead off, with cherry, floral, licorice, tea and underbrush flavors. This is intense, vibrant and resonant on the long, fruit- and mineral-infused aftertaste. Best from 2019 through 2032. 1,500 cases made.
Wine EnthusiastAromas of dark berry, violet, mint and menthol lead the nose and carry over to the palate together with juicy cherry and a note of baking spice. This is still tightly wound with densely packed but refined tannins and brisk acidity. Give it time to open up and blossom over the next few years. Drink 2018-2026.
