G.D. Vajra Barolo Albe 2015


2015 Barolo Albe(Sunrises) opens up with a bright, expressive nose, rose petal perfumes and a perfectly judged equilibrium of tannin and acidity. With an incredibly long finish indicating the exceptional quality of this Nebbiolo. Albe also stared in the 2015 Hollywood film, Burnt.

Founded by Aldo Vajra, G.D. Vajra was established in 1972 and named after Aldo’s father, Giuseppe Domenico. Aldo was one of the earliest to adopt organic farming in Piemonte. They are sustainable and organic certified. The estate is now run by the second generation Giuseppe, Isidoro and Francesca Vajra, lovingly overseen by father Aldo and mother Milena. Vajra wines show elegance, aligned with a vibrancy and depth only derived from exemplary viticulture. This is why the wines are continuously referred to as the benchmark of Barolo.
