Vajra Barolo Bricco Delle Viole 2013 Product #32720 (In Stock)
Vajra Barolo Bricco Delle Viole 2013 Vajra Barolo Bricco Delle Viole 2013

Since we first encountered it in the 2006 vintage, we've come to love Vajra's flagship Bricco della Viole Barolo.  The vineyard lies high up the side of the highest hill in the commune of Barolo.  The altitude cools the vines a bit, but the perch above the fog line gives the grapes loads of warming sunshine every day.  Only older vines from the hill go into the Cru bottling after a 40 day fermentation/maceration and 42 months aging in 25-50 hectoliter Slavoniann oak barrels.  The site and hands-off winemakinng give this unusual purity and elegance to go with the powerhouse structure and intense flavors.  The wine’s beauty is already apparent after 3 hours in decanter, but it will sing most sweetly from 2021.

"The 2013 Barolo Bricco delle Viole is a real head-turner. Sweet, perfumed, vivid and exceptionally beautiful, the 2013 is simply stunning. A wine of exceptional finesse and sensuality, the 2013 hits all the right notes. Today, the 2013 reminds me of the 2008, but with more depth, density and creaminess - especially through the middle - and slightly redder fruit tones."  Vinous (Galloni) 97 points
