A ripe ruby color, the 2020 Barolo Bricco Delle Viole is incredible on the nose. Initially lightly smoky on opening, it needs a little time to reveal notes of candied roses, wild raspberries, tea leaf, and sweet sage. Medium to full-bodied, with ripe tannins, a balanced, compact nature, and a velvety texture, it is nicely concentrated, yet with a weightless feel. This is one of the most complete wines I’ve tasted from Vjara to date. It has depth, but with a defined feel, and is long on the palate, with an exceptional finish. It’s going to have a wide drinking window but age at a very slow rate over the next two to three decades.

It's also his top-rated $100 Barolo ever. And Vinous agrees:

The 2020 Barolo Bricco delle Viole Vajra's flagship is very fine. Dark cherry kirsch blood orange spice and lavender are nicely amplified. The 2020 is gracious and elegant but its youthful Nebbiolo tannins will require some time to soften. The 2020 is another wine that captures my keen interests with its sublime balance. I would be thrilled to own it.

Also the top Vajra Barolo ever on CellarTracker, with these reviews:

A super young, beautifully primary Barolo, all fresh red cherries, a touch of cranberry, and lovely aromatic rose aromatics. a very pretty floral nose. Just a tiny hint of that classic tar note that will become more prominent over time. High acid with a light body, plenty of chalky tannins but still quite elegant. Long smooth and very pleasant on the finish. Beautiful stuff that I'm sure will age wonderfully for decades.

Their best wine. If you like Barolo, consider purchasing it. Tasted at the winery. Suave, well balanced and quite elegant. I will be really keen to see how the wine matures over the next 20 years. A winner.

Amazing and clear best wine in vajra 20 tasting, shy on the nose but amazing pure long fruit, elegant.
