G.D. Vajra Dolcetto d'Alba 2018
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.
Dolcetto d’Alba DOC 2018 has a brilliant purple color. The nose is fresh and exuberant with red strawberry, mulberry, infused roes and fresh thyme. Palate is bursting with blue fruits and fresh plums, tannins are crunchy and the finish is elegant with a lovely almond and spiced finish. A true food-friendly wine that enhances egg pastas, white and red meats and vegetable-based dishes.
