WINE PROFILE

G. D. VAJRA
Dolcetto d'Alba 2014

divider

88 POINTS - VINOUS MEDIA      [Read More]

divider

Vajra has as much passion and works just as hard for their Dolcetto as they do for their Nebbiolo. It's a vibrant and delicious wine that's full of dark fruit and aromas of herbs, red flowers, and spice. The wine rests in large neutral Slovonian oak cask for a short time so it can breath and reach wonderful vinous levels not seen in ordinary Dolcetto.  Dolcetto of this quality is a fantastic food wine, try pairing with braised meats, osso buco, salumi, or hearty meat and mushroom pastas. Dolcetto ripens early and needs a good sunny run through the late summer and early fall coupled with cool nights to finish the last of the phenolics and boost aromatics.
