The wine for which Vajra is best known. Beautiful floral, violets and raspberries, and amazing juice. Very silky and fine and alpine tipped, luminous, clean and lifted. So much clarity and brightness, this is wonderful. It’s so silky and finessed.

2015 Barolo Bricco delle Viole, G.D. Vajra
G.D. Vajra

Surprisingly, given their access to great terroir, this estate was only founded in 1972 by Patriarch Aldo. Named after his father Giuseppe Domenico who planted most of the family’s vines, the property sits at one of the highest points in Piedmont, so the grapes ripen later than anywhere else in the region. When these slow-ripening grapes are pressed, it gives their wines a unique, fresh and elegant style. They’re Barolos for Burgundy lovers.
