'We love Dolcetto. In the local tradition, this grape was cultivated on the best exposures, just above Nebbiolo parcels. Resonating with our own heritage, we dedicate only fine blocks to this variety, so to let it express with plenitude.' – GD Vajra

Tasting notes:
'The G.D. Vajra 2019 Dolcetto d'Alba is a dark and exuberant wine that offers a naked and pure interpretation of this easy and food-friendly grape. Dolcetto d'Alba is the kind of wine I'd love to pair with my favorite broccoli rapini and spicy sausage pizza from a wood oven. Dark cherry, blackberry and prune segue to bitter almond and tilled earth. Drink 2020 - 2023.' – Monica Larner, Wine Advocate, 89/100 (Jul 2020)

'The 2019 Dolcetto d’Alba has a lively deep purple color. The nose opens with tones of wild berries, mulberry, hints of white pepper and sweet spices and fresh thyme. The palate is bursting with blue fruits and fresh plums, with a gentle tart touch that smoothen up beautifully with food. The finish is elegant with a lovely almond whiffle. A true food-friendly wine that enhances egg pastas, pizza, white and red meats and vegetable-based dishes.' – Winemaker

About GD Vajra:
GD Vajra estate is named after Giuseppe Domenico Vajra who founded the estate in 1972. Located in the highest village of Barolo, the vineyards are run by Giuseppe's son Aldo and his family. The vineyards sit at high altitudes of up to 400 metres, this creates thermal changes which ripen the fruit slowly and allow the concentration of noble and delicate aromas. GD Vjara have been pioneers of organic farming since 1971.
