This fine early drinking Barolo is named after the sunset (albe) because the three fine vineyards that provide the fruit, Fossati, Coste and La Volta all see the first rays of sun in their respected areas.  Vinified in a style that is more fruit-forward than classic Barolo, this wine nonetheless delivers on all fronts where classic, terroir driven Nebbiolo is desired.

With aromatic floral notes of rose petals, wild berries, cinnamon, tobacco and tar, this is pure Barolo.  A perfect balance of maturity, structure and freshness are attained.  Well-coated ripe tannins provide backbone and breed while the fresh fruit just keeps you coming back for more.  Classy stuff!
