WINE SPECTATOR
Saturated with cherry, raspberry, floral and tobacco flavors, this red is solid and expressive. Bright acidity and dense tannins offer support, while the fruit, mineral, earth and spice elements linger. Best from 2018 through 2030. 5,500 cases made, 3,000 cases imported.

VINOUS
The 2012 Barolo Albe is a solid entry-level offering from the Vajra family. Crushed flowers, sweet red berries, tobacco, spices and autumn leaves all open up nicely. Mid-weight gracious and open-knit, the 2012 Albe is an excellent choice for drinking over the next handful of years. The 2012 is a bit more forward and less structured than most previous editions, so I would choose to err on the conservative side and drink it sooner rather than later.
