Barolo Bricco delle Viole 2012
Offers classic aromas of rose, cherry and tar, with hints of licorice and spice. As this plays out, a tobacco element comes to the fore, along with leafy, eucalyptus and mineral details. Very fresh and balanced, if tannic on the finish for now. Drink now through 2035.
The Vajra family has farmed Bricco delle Viole, the highest cru in Comune di Barolo, since the XVII century. Located on the western heights of the area, this top-echelon estate crafts Barolos and exquisite wines of elegance, complexity and charm.
