Dolcetto d'Alba, Vajra - 2022

Pioneer of the great Barolos of the modern era and accomplished stylist, Aldo Vajra has a predilection for dolcetto, whose charm he knows how to express perfectly: the stone fruit aromas and slightly balsamic spicy notes are superb. The palate is a model of Piedmontese expression, with a ripe texture, wonderfully sapid and very tactile. A great pleasure!

Thus one temporary rebellion led to a more permanent one; and although the family had owned vineyards in the area for several generations, wines were first bottled under the Vajra name in the 1970s. The initials "G.D." stand for Giuseppe Domenico, Aldo Vajra's father, who signed the founding papers of the estate in 1972, Aldo himself being a minor at the time. 

In the beginning, Aldo and his wife Milena ran the winery on nights and weekends, while Aldo taught viticulture at the University of Alba. Over time, they expanded the estate to about 40 hectares, which is now cultivated in a sustainable manner. From the beginning, G.D. Vajra has been a family...
