Area: Albe, Langhe, Piedmont.
Aldo Vajra’s wines are characterised by pristine flavours and clearly defined perfumes
Brilliant and finely sculpted on the palate, the 2010 dazzles from the very first taste.
Expressive, floral notes give way to bright red fruit, mint and crushed berries in a vibrant, striking Barolo.
In most vintages, Le Albe is juicy and fruit-driven, but in 2010 it is above all the wine‘s minerality that shines through.
"The 2010 wines are a jump into both the past and future of Piemonte," says Giuseppe Vaira. "They offer a return to balanced fruit, a savoury mid-palate and a racy, long finish. Nebbiolo is tight yet disclosing a wide aromatic spectrum already."
