In any discussion of Piemontese wine nobility, the name Vajra should always come up. Founded in the 1880s but not transformed into its present incarnation until 15-year-old Aldo Vajra took over the estate in 1968, The G.D. Vajra (VI-ra) estate has since distinguished itself as one of Piedmont’s finest Nebbiolo houses. The estate is known not only for its extraordinary high-altitude Barolo, but for its uncompromising adherence to organic farming and its pioneering work creating biotypes of Nebbiolo and Dolcetto and preserving the “fourth grape” of the Piemontese trifecta, Freisa. Work has also been done at the winery on restoring to prominence the northern Italian dry rosato style known as Chiaretto.

Vajra’s Langhe Nebbiolo pours a deep garnet and displays intense notes of red berries, violets, and rosewater. Well-structured but supple, tannins are long and elegant. Drink now-2023.
