Albe is a Barolo that stands out for its precision, balance and drinkability. According to tradition, Albe was born from an assembly of grapes from different vineyards and lies 36 months in large Slavonian oak barrels. Intriguing garnet to the eye, on nose it recalls ripe flowers and fruits, from cherry to blueberry, from bitter citrus to black cherry, with hints of spice, aromatic woods, medicinal herbs, absinthe. Savory sip, with agile and integrated tannins. A Barolo with which you can talk from an early age, with good softness and long persistence.

Very pure and elegant Barolo

This Albe Barolo is a true beauty, a throwback to the times when barolos were delicate rather than muscular. It reminded me of the best valtellinas too, its weightlessness apparently at odds with the intensity of flavour, like a great pinot noir. Its aroma of roses and violets mingled with wafts of red fruit and undergrowth. Pristine, clear and well-delineated. A little gem.

Incredible value barolo!

Great barolo showing for a real nice price in what's been called a legendary vintage. Already offering great fruit and herbal notes but with a long life ahead!

Una nebbiolo excelente

La nebbiolo tiene un color granate mate sin brillo y una capa media. No es un caldo oscuro ni denso, es más bien un vino de capa media nada corpulento, ligero, sutil, afrutado, agradable, fresco, de trago largo, que invita a llenar la copa una vez tras otra. Compra muy recomendable.
