G.D. Vajra Dolcetto d’Alba
Wonderful aromatic Piemonte red with a smooth spicy red fruit character, and some typically firm Dolcetto tannins. Dolcetto at G.D. Vajra is no afterthought to Nebbiolo, it is a prized grape in itself, planted at high elevation for pristine late-picking and full phenolic ripeness.
The result is a layered wine with a burst of forest berries and fresh plum flavours. There is no oak involved, the food-friendly succulent grip is all naturally Dolcetto tannin.
