Des vieilles vignes de nebbiolo plantées entre 380-470 mètres d’altitude. Le bricco delle Viole est le point culminant.
Wines & Spirits (W&S) : 95 Points (2014) The Vajra family’s plots in this cru—one of the highest in the Barolo commune—are usually the last they harvest, and were especially so in the cool 2014 vintage. The wait was worth it, resulting in a ripe, vibrant Barolo, its berry flavors infused with brilliant, mouthwatering acidity. Velvety tannins frame the fruit, leaving room for notes of licorice and mint to emerge. Decanter (DCT) : 94 Points (2014), 50 days of maceration and 30 months in large barrels sculpt a floral, sapid and caressing Barolo of rare nobility. Full, with round tannins. A rich, refreshing style with huge drinkability – and ready now. Robert Parker (RP) : 92 Points (2014) The 2014 vintage is a bit thinner and more compact in terms of mouthfeel, but the bouquet is bright and vibrant nonetheless. This is a more approachable interpretation of one of Barolo's most elegant and delicate wines. Rating: 92+
