Barolo Bricco delle Viole, G D Vajra, Barolo, Piemonte, Italy, 2015
100% Nebbiolo aged for 25 months in 24 and 50hl Slavonian oak barrels.
Brilliant ruby red, this Barolo has aromas of cherries, dark berries, violets and dried roses with nuances of citrus fruits and mint. On the palate, there are silky tannins. The wine is well balanced with a long delicately spiced finish.
"Tasted blind. Concentrated youthful ruby. Brooding richness on the nose with a hint of bacon. A layer of ripe fruit with great tangy acidity and polished tannins on the finish. Generous strawberry fruit that could do with a bit of bottle ageing." 17/20 Walter Speller jancisrobinson.com
The 'Bricco delle Viole' vineyard is located at altitudes of 380-470 metres above sea level in the commune of Barolo and covers 4.79 hectares. It is one of the highest vineyards in Barolo, meaning it sits above the fog and enjoys the earliest sunrise and latest sunset in the area. One part of the vineyard is planted with vines which are now over 60 years old and yield less than 30 hectolitres per hectare. Its high altitude and long ripening season gives the wine an aromatic complexity and richness that is lacking in lower vineyards.
