The 2016 Albe has textbook aromatics: rose petals, rose hips, cherry stones on the nose, followed by delicate tones of Nebbiolo pomace, tar, cranberries and raspberries, mint, anise, gentle musk and a whiffle of white pepper. In the palate, it’s fragrant and uplifting, yet disclosing a rich texture, a fresh but poised mid palate and velvety tannins. Authentic and expressive, Albe beautifully celebrates Barolo and the amazing craft of assembling vineyards.
