Nebbiolo, though light in color is heavy in tannin and makes an age-worthy and high quality wine. Sustainable farming and slow fermentation. A brilliant expression ready to be drank version of one of Piedmont's most iconic varieties.
From the mouth of the importer (Martin Scott):
"G.D. Vajra was founded in 1972 by Aldo Vaira and his wife Milena. For generations, the Vairas had sold their fruit to local growers but upon inheriting the estate, Aldo broke from family tradition and began producing wines under his own label. G.D. Vajra is entirely a family affair – the winery was named after Aldo's father, Giuseppe Domenico and Aldo and Milena work with their daughter Francesca and sons, Giuseppe and Isidoro.
The family owns almost 100 acres of vineyards in Vergne, the highest village in the Commune of Barolo and the wines are made from estate fruit that is triple sorted by hand. The Vajra's winemaking philosophy is simple - they are not modern, they are not traditional. They practice sustainable farming and craft sensitive, transparent wines of place by patiently allowing the fruit to dictate its own evolution."
