Notes from the Winemaker:
"The true Beauty of Albe is the caress of the sun that rises three times every morning over our vineyards. It’s the exceptional simplicity of nature that makes the awakening of life an everyday miracle." - Milena Vaira

Albe has an amazing scent of macerated Nebbiolo pomace, cranberries and raspberries. Infused rose petals, sweet red fruits and a hint of black figs, complete its wide and elegant bouquet. So authentic and yet expressive, it beautifully celebrates the maturity of these vineyards and wine. Albe is a pure tribute to Barolo di Barolo and to the amazing craft of combining vineyards

A tribute to the masters of our tradition, Albe is the sum of high-elevation estate vineyards. They lay on different slopes, thus our chance to see three sunrises (Albe) every day.

VARIETY: 100% Nebbiolo.

VINEYARD AND TERROIR: Albe is a blend of wonderful Barolo vineyards with exposures that range from south-south-east to south-west, at high elevation between 380 and 480m above sea level.

Ratings & Reviews


93 Points & #48 Top 100 Wines of 2019 - Wine Spectator:
"Pretty, featuring rose, cherry, raspberry and mint flavors, with a touch of mineral. Supple, harmonious and elegant, offering a long finish. The aftertaste is tinged with orange peel and tobacco notes. Best from 2021 through 2036. 4,500 cases made." —BS

93 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"This Barolo offers a more immediate approach, with lots of dark berry followed by spice, tilled earth and black truffle. The 2015 Barolo Albe pours to a medium dark color and lays out a mid-weight texture, with bright primary fruit that is expertly woven into the wine. It exposes clearly etched veins of acidity and some determinedly firm tannins. Despite the Albe's accessible personality, I recommend that you wait a few more years before popping the cork." - Monica Larner (28th Jun 2019)

93 Points - James Suckling:

7 Jan, 2019 – "A vivid and bright perfume to this beautiful young Barolo with cherries and roses galore. Full body, very firm and silky tannins and a flavorful finish. Linear and refined. Drink from 2022."

92 Points - Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"Aromas of mature dark-skinned berries and brown baking spices fill the glass along with a whiff of new leather. Medium bodied and taut, the chewy palate offers dried black cherry, cranberry, blood orange and star anise alongside tightly knit, dusty tannins. Kerin O’Keefe" - (12/1/2019)

91 Points - Vinous:
"The 2015 Barolo Albe is a soft, open-knit wine that will drink well upon release. Bright and lifted, with plenty of red cherry fruit and floral notes, the Albe captures the essence of the Vajra house style nicely. This is a terrific entry-level Barolo, not to mention one of the finest values in Piedmont. " Antonio Galloni - (Feb 2019)
