Aldo and Milena Vaira established G.D.Vajra in 1972 with some of the best vineyards in the Langhe. In total they own 25 hectares of vines with a further 10 hectares contracted for their production. They produce on average 100,000 bottles a year. Aldo Vajra and his children Giuseppe, Francesca and Isidoro aim to make wines that express the terroir of their vineyards, which are located in the Vergne zone of Barolo. The wines reflect their maker’s highly individual and personal style, they exhibit great nuance, elegance, and understatement, just like the man himself.
Our Langhe Rosso is a hug from Piedmont. It’s an invitation to explore its different varieties and to get to know its personality. It is a fruity, delicately complex wine - an ideal companion at the table. It’s predominately Nebbiolo, Barbera and Dolcetto, with smaller quantities of Freisa, Albarossa, Pinot Noir. The varieties are vinified one by one, to express their personality and uniqueness.
Fantastic value as ever, Vajra's Langhe Rosso is meant to give an overview of Piemonte's Langhe region. This is sourced from various vineyards, each variety vinified separately. Fragrant black cherries, wild plums, herbal cassis, salted anise is woven with streaks of tar and dried roses to a firmly spiced finish. Tannins are fine and firm, well-enveloped into the medium-bodied fruit. A wonderful capsule of nebbiolo in the Langhe. Rating: 91 Points; Treve Ring
One of the foremost producers in Piedmont. Vajra's Langhe Rosso is a snapshot of Piemonte's Langhe. A baby Barolo if you like, and it is easy to see why. Look for a fragrant nose of tobacco, plums, and floral notes. The attack is round and forward with soft red fruit flavours reminiscent of cherries, pomegranates, spice, and liquorice, with a mineral dryness, finesse, and firmness in the finish that screams Italian.
