G.D. Vajra Dolcetto d'Alba 2020
Historically, Dolcetto was cultivated in prime land, just above Nebbiolo vineyards. At Vajra, they remain loyal to this approach, farming this grape in places of true vocation. Dolcetto d’Alba DOC is an homage to a wonderful, often overlooked heritage of Piemonte. It is a pure, vibrant and fruity expression of the variety, ideal for many food pairings from appetizers to pastas and vegetables and light protein such as white meats and egg-based dishes.
Deep violet in color, the nose is of red and wild berries leaning to cherries with some herbal notes. The gentle tannins are a perfect match for the moderate, but very fresh acidity.

|Black cherry, rose and juniper aromas and flavors mark this pliable red. Picks up a touch of earth on the finish, yet this is overall pure and full of finesse.|
