G.D. Vajra Langhe Nebbiolo

  • VARIETY: 100% Nebbiolo.

  • VINEYARDS: Young vineyards in Barolo, Novello, Sinio and Bricco Bertone.

  • HARVEST AND WINEMAKING: The Nebbiolo is harvested usually between the second half of September and the beginning of October. Picking decisions are individual to each site, and Vajra sometimes opts for multiple passages to respect the diversity of each vine. Fermentation lasts for an average of 15-20 days in vertical vats, and is followed by spontaneous malolactic fermentation.

  • AGING: Vajra’s Langhe Nebbiolo ages for usually 8 to 14 months. It is a wide range, in order to respect the uniqueness of each vintage and to patiently await the optimal bottling time. Most of the ageing is carried in stainless-steel vats, with a minor fraction of the wine being in neutral oak only when needed.
