This wine is a ruby red colour, with aromas of red fruits and plums combining with floral notes, pine needles and brushwood. 'Le Albe' is full of sophisticated and delicate flavours supported by ripe tannins and an elegant acidity.

Wine EnthusiastAromas of rose, crushed mint, red berry and dark spice mingle together with an earthy whiff of leather on this fragrant Barolo. The vibrant, almost ethereal palate delivers juicy Marasca cherry, star anise and an almost salty note alongside taut, polished tannins and racy acidity. Drink 2021-2026.

Wine SpectatorCherry, leather, spice and leafy underbrush flavors walk the line between sweet fruit and bitter tannins. Finds balance in concert with the delicate frame. Fine length. Best from 2022 through 2038.

Wine AdvocateA tribute to local tradition, the 2014 Barolo Albe represents an assembly of fruit from various vineyard plots throughout the area. Winemaking is classic in approach with a 25-day maceration period and aging in large Slavonian oak casks. This vintage shows silky, fine lines and a more accessible approach for near and medium-term drinking. I would recommend a few more years of bottle aging, however, to allow the wine the time to grow in texture and mouthfeel.
