      “Pètracine” Riesling Langhe DOC 2015

      The pioneer of Riesling on Italian soil is Aldo Vajra. Already fascinated by the variety as a student, he planted the first vines of the White Riesling variety in the Langa. Very light yellow-green in youth, developing into a strong straw yellow. The aromas of the noble Pètracine are also varied. Beginning with peach and apricot, delicate floral and citrus notes follow in its food, while minerality comes to the fore as it matures. On the palate harmonious and precisely structured, almost austere, fascinatingly complex and long. Great maturing potential! SUPERIORE.DE

      "In 2015 Vajra's Riesling Piètracine is built on a core of rich, expansive fruit. Peach, apricot pit, chamomile and lightly honeyed notes infuse the creamy, expressive finish. This is one of the more racy, forward vintages of the Riesling I can remember tasting. I would prefer to drink it sooner rather than later." Antonio Galloni

    • Freisa "Kyè" Langhe DOC 2015

      Freisa “Kyè" Langhe DOC 2015

      Vajra not only recognized the potential of the Freisa grape with Kyè, but redefined it. An explosive wine with dark fruits, violets, minerals, menthol and spices. Amazingly beautiful and multidimensional, the fruit remains primary and the tannins are firm. Elegance all the way and Freisa all the way, but without the ancient rusticity of this native variety. SUPERIORE.DE

      "The 2015 Langhe Freisa Kyè will be released later this October. Freisa is a fascinating grape that has the structure of Nebbiolo and the freshness of Barbera. It also has a unique touch of bitterness that comes naturally to this variety. G D Vajra has shaped a sophisticated and fruit-driven expression. They let the grapes hang longer in the vineyard before harvest to take away some of that greenness that comes from the seeds. This warm vintage has shaped a soft and rich red wine. This is an attractive pairing partner to serve with lamb or pork dishes." Robert Parker

      Barolo Albe is very multi-layered with tobacco, violet and berry tones and a multi-faceted bouquet. Deep and persistent on the palate with elegant tannin structure and pleasant acid reader, long lasting. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Intense dark ruby red with a sparkling core. Deep and multi-layered nose of dark blackberries, ripe Amarena cherries, with a slight reverberation of gunpowder. It spreads beautifully on the palate, has well integrated acidity and finely meshed tannin, remains long and fruity in the finale." Falstaff

      "Cherry, leather, spice and leafy underbrush flavors walk the line between sweet fruit and bitter tannins. Finds balance in concert with the delicate frame. Fine length." Wine Spectator

      "A tribute to local tradition, the 2014 Barolo Albe represents an assembly of fruit from various vineyard plots throughout the area. Winemaking is classic in approach with a 25-day maceration period and aging in large Slavonian oak casks. This vintage shows silky, fine lines and a more accessible approach for near and medium-term drinking" Robert Parker

      Barolo “Albe” DOCG 2015

      Barolo Albe comes from three parcels: Fossati, Castello della Volta and Costa di Vergne. The 2015 edition is a real eye-catcher. Brilliant and finely formed on the palate, it captivates from the first taste. Expressive, floral notes merge into bright red fruits, mint and ground berries in a lively, distinctive Barolo, equipped with pure energy and class. As in all good years, Barolo Albe is juicy and fruity and is like every year due to its comparatively moderate price a clear purchase! SUPERIORE.DE

      "Rich, luminous ruby. Noble nose with fine spice, ripe cherries, forest fruits. In the mouth finely drawn with fruity core, juicy acidity and tightly woven tannin, flows calmly, prepares much drinking fun! Falstaff

      "Mid ruby. Lifted and appealing cherry nose with a hint of cocoa and black tea leaves. Supple palate with plenty of ripe fruit and lots of delicious chewy tannins. Really accessible and long. Great balance." Jancis Robinson

      "Elegant and pure aromas on the nose. Sour cherry, rose petals on the palate with a clean and long finish." Decanter

      "The 2015 Barolo Albe is a soft, open-knit wine that will drink well upon release. Bright and lifted, with plenty of red cherry fruit and floral notes, the Albe captures the essence of the Vajra house style nicely. This is a terrific entry-level Barolo, not to mention one of the finest values in Piedmont." VINOUS

      "Aromas of mature dark-skinned berries and brown baking spices fill the glass along with a whiff of new leather. Medium bodied and taut, the chewy palate offers dried black cherry, cranberry, blood orange and star anise alongside tightly knit, dusty tannins." Wine Enthusiast

      "Pretty, featuring rose, cherry, raspberry and mint flavors, with a touch of mineral. Supple, harmonious and elegant, offering a long finish. The aftertaste is tinged with orange peel and tobacco notes." Wine Spectator

      "This Barolo offers a more immediate approach, with lots of dark berry followed by spice, tilled earth and black truffle. The 2015 Barolo Albe pours to a medium dark color and lays out a mid-weight texture, with bright primary fruit that is expertly woven into the wine. It exposes clearly etched veins of acidity and some determinedly firm tannins. Despite the Albe's accessible personality, I recommend that you wait a few more years before popping the cork."

    About the winemakers
    G.D. Vajra
    Piedmont
    G.D. Vajra

    The noble wines of G.D. Vajra with their elegance and beauty are a reference for a world-famous royal wine. The winery has been in existence since the 1970s and is located in Vergne, the highest village in the western Barolo area. The Nebbiolo, Dolcetto and Barbera varieties are cultivated there, as well as the Freisa and even the white Riesling grapes, which were important in the past, in strict compliance with fundamental ethical values. The initials of the winery G.D. Vajra stand for Giuseppe Domenico, Aldo Vajra's father, who signed the founding documents of the winery in 1972, as Aldo himself was still a minor. His wife Milena joined the company in the 1980s and together they managed to bring the initially small company with today's top locations Bricco delle Viole, Coste di Vergne, Fossati and La Volta to world fame in Barolo production. In the meantime, Aldo's children Giuseppe, Francesca and Isidoro are entrusted with the work in the company.

    The grapes of G.D. Vajra have always been grown close to nature. As they mature only late, the authentic, strong character and multi-faceted wines produced in the estate are of a cool elegance. Its aromatic finesse is brought into balance with a lively but well-proportioned acidity in beautifully modern and functionally designed cellars. The wines are traditionally characterized by a longer maceration and are predominantly aged in Slovenian barrels. In this Piedmontese winery, values such as wholeness and harmony are written in capital letters.

    In 2009, the Vajra family, modest, hospitable and not by chance left their vineyard portfolio of the highest quality with the acquisition of the Baudana company in Serralunga d'Alba upgraded again. Here, in the heart of the Barolo area, two top-quality plants thrive in the top locations of Baudana and Cerretta.

    The fact that the wines produced in the G.D. Vajra winery with great personal commitment - above all the Bricco delle Viole - are first-class is confirmed again and again by ratings in wine guides such Gambero Rossoas , Robert Parker, Antonio Galloniand also in the Veronelli Guide. SUPERIORE.DE

    "It is a true amusement park of varieties and areas that Aldo and Milena Vajra have built over the years. Few wineries in the Langa region have succeeded in experimenting successfully with less common types of wine such as Riesling Renano, Pinot Nero and Freisa, while maintaining admirable stylistic coherence for the great classics. (...) With the acquisition of the Luigi Baudana company, the Baudana and Cerretta di Serralunga plots are now also part of the family business."Gambero Rosso 2015
