"First day: Lustrous mid ruby with the beginning of orange tinges. A firmer nose than the Albe of the same vintage and still closed with notes only of spice emerging from the glass. Hints of rich cherry. Gentle and concentrated palate with plenty of firm, sandy tannins and with plenty of concentrated fruit that is still a little reluctant to come out. Needs more time.

Second day: A little bit backward, but with a peppery tingle. Raspberries with hints of malt. Brooding concentration. Linear red fruit on the palate but not austere and with bags of powdery tannins. Long but closes up. Certainly refreshing and tactile." ~ (16.5) Walter Speller, JancisRobinson.com 11-3-2021

"Very clean red-berry fruit on the nose, together with citrus and cedar notes. Medium body with fine-grained tannins and a tight bead of fruit at the end. Sustainable. Best from 2024." ~ (92) James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com 1-22-2022

With fruit from above the village of Barolo, the G.D. Vajra 2018 Barolo Coste di Rose shows a large aromatic scope and ample substance. This vineyard is characterized by very high density Diano sandstone (typical of the area), which explains the wine’s bigger sensorial impact. Its texture is velvety and smooth, and the wine offers lots of purple and red fruits with soft earth and perfumed flower. The vintage is open knit and broad in scope, perhaps lacking some of the brilliant focus you get in the cooler years. This wine was first produced in 2015. ~ (94) Monica Larner, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 8-11-2022
