Azienda G.D. Vajra

Piedmont, Italy | website

Aldo and Milena Vajra are amongst the elite of Piedmont’s growers, but they prefer to let their wines speak for them, shying away from bravado and public spectacle. Vintage after vintage, the estate continues to focus on excellence throughout their entire range. Steeped in tradition the Vajra’s let their Nebbiolo ferment for up to 40 days and typically age their Barolo in large Slavonian oak. The wines are structured, elegant and bursting with flavor, even in their youth. In particular, the Albe offers what few other Baroli in its price category can. These are world class wines that over perform and often outclass wines twice their price.


2010 Barolo Bricco delle Viole

$95.00
Please inquire!

"The 2010 Barolo Bricco delle Viole is going to need quite a bit of time to fully come together. Dark cherries, plums, tobacco and spices burst from the glass in an intense, structured Barolo that hits all the high notes. Next to the Ravera, the Bricco delle Viole is more floral, lifted and finessed, especially with time in the glass. Rose petals, savory herbs and sweet spices add the last nuance of complexity. The 2010 is fabulous; it's as simple as that."

2013 Langhe Nebbiolo

$28.95

Very limited

The 2012 Langhe Nebbiolo is dark, pliant and generous. Short fermentations keep the flavors vibrant, but there is nevertheless plenty of depth and nuance in the glass. Far from an easygoing wine, the 2012 Langhe Nebbiolo is endowed with serious structure, power and depth. Expressive spiced notes round things out nicely.
