The estate of GD Vajra, established in 1972 is situated in Vergne, the highest village in the Commune of Barolo. Its vineyards are planted with Nebbiolo, Dolcetto and Barbera at heights of 350-400 meters, which results in distinctive and aromatic wines. Their philosophy remains faithful to the traditional and authentic wines of Piemonte. “I try to make wines that give people joy. In the past wine was a food, it was necessary for sustenance. Today that is not the case; we choose to drink for pleasure. I want to make wines that bring people happiness. ~ Aldo Vajra

Tasting notes
A deep violet red, the nose is redolent of ripe dark stone fruit and berries. Great minerality, fruit concentration and a tremendous finish.

Technical notes
The fruit for this wine is grown in two exceptional vineyards - Bricco delle Viole in Barolo and Bricco Bertone in Sinio. The hand-picked fruit was fermented and macerated in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks for 20 days with manual punch down and aged for 20-24 months in Slavonian oak casks.
