Tasting Notes

A summery red of vibrant fruit with quite an intense feel for a Dolcetto. Notes of plum and black cherry combine with a touch of dried olive for savoury edge in a well balanced whole.

Producer details

G.D. Vajra was established in 1972 and named after Aldo's father, Giuseppe Domenico Vajra. Aldo has been gradually increasing the area under vine to 60 hectares, of which 10 are Nebbiolo for Barolo, located in such strategic spots as Bricco delle Viole, Fossati, La Volta and Coste di Vergne. In a region where often the best parcels are kept for Nebbiolo production, here they save the best for their Dolcetto.

In the vineyard

Aldo Vaira's wines are characterised by pristine flavours and clearly defined perfumes. These characters are attributable to the position of his vineyards at about 400 metres above sea level in the village of Vergne in the commune of Barolo.

In the winery

Sitting nicely between modern an traditional - Aldo adheres to old-style wine-making methods, though blends these with new techniques, such as temperature-controlled fermentation, to produce such superbly elegant wines.

Food Recommendations

Simply Pastas with fresh sauce, also great with truffle adorned foods
