2016 Coste di Rose is a wine of nesse and complexity. Thanks to the unique sandstones, it's voluptuous, accessible and versatile with food. Aromas of roses, tones of marasca cherry and cherry stone, licorice, mint and sweet spices are rather explosive on the nose. In the palate, Coste di Rose is juicy, with tones of dark cherry, silky tannins and a saline aftertaste.

Dusty cherry, black currant, eucalyptus and hay aromas and flavors highlight this energetic red. There is purity to the beam of fruit, and while the structure is muscular, the lasting impression is of sweet fruit. Best from 2023 through 2045. 400 cases made.

Red berry, rose, dark spice and menthol form the nose while the graceful palate offers juicy Marasca cherry, strawberry compote and licorice. Bright acidity and polished tannins provide support and impart finesse. Drink through 2031.

The 2016 Barolo Coste di Rose is plump, juicy and forward - all qualities that make it one of the more approachable wines in the Vajra range. Plump dark cherry, plum, licorice, spice and menthol all flesh out in a racy, juicy Barolo that will drink well right out of the gate. Plush fruit and silky tannins add to the wine's voluptuous feel and early accessibility. This is very good, but it is not particularly complex.

Antonio Galloni, February 2020
