2019 G.D Vajra Bricco Delle Viole, Barolo DOCG Italy
Among the historical vineyards of Barolo, Bricco delle Viole is the
highest and the closest to the Alps. It rises from 400 to 480 meters above sea level,
on the Western ridge of the village. Its name, “Hill of Violets”, originates from the
flowers that blossom early here due to the perfect south exposure. Up above the
fogs, Bricco delle Viole enjoys the earliest sunrise and the last sunset every day.
Thanks to its vines dating back to 1949, a dramatic diurnal temperature range and
this pure light, Bricco delle Viole generates a sophisticated and profound Barolo
DOCG of bright aromatics, chiseled tannins and subtle minerality.
