      Dolcetto d’Alba DOC 2019

      Deep ruby red with a violet tinge, the typical cherry flavour with notes of rose and bitter almonds caresses the palate. This Dolcetto shines with a powerful body and a fruity, crisp finish. SUPERIORE.DE

      "The G.D. Vajra 2019 Dolcetto d'Alba is a dark and exuberant wine that offers a naked and pure interpretation of this easy and food-friendly grape. Dolcetto d'Alba is the kind of wine I'd love to pair with my favorite broccoli rapini and spicy sausage pizza from a wood oven. Dark cherry, blackberry and prune segue to bitter almond and tilled earth." Robert Parker

    • "Claré" Nebbiolo Langhe DOC 2020

      “Claré" Nebbiolo Langhe DOC 2020

      Don't be surprised: This expressive, fresh red could also be a rosé, and it has a very fine, barely noticeable mousseux to boot. With these qualities, this serious fun-maker is a wonderfully refreshing and at the same time extremely tasty Nebbiolo, which with its expressive bouquet of crushed raspberries and strawberries is an ideal food companion or "just" spring or summer wine that can be enjoyed solo without any problems. For us, the wonderfully drinkable Piedmontese answer to the high-quality, dry Lambruschi of Emilia. Pure enthusiasm! SUPERIORE.DE

      Dolcetto d'Alba Coste & Fossati is one of the benchmark wines of the appellation. A very dark purple drop with the bouquet of roasted almonds, cherries, tar and chocolate. On the palate voluminous, long and rich, velvety and juicy with subtle sweetness, impressive the gripping texture. Already a pleasure today and in a few years undoubtedly a great experience.

    • Pinot Nero Langhe DOC 2017

      Pinot Nero Langhe DOC 2017

      Vajras Pinot Nero is a selection of the best grapes and a wine of great personality. Fresh and floral-scented, complex, deep fruit with fluid flavour development and saucy minerality. Elegant, long and very expressive. SUPERIORE.DE

      "The 2017 Langhe Pinot Nero is a pretty wine that offers an intriguing mix of varietal flavors with a distinctly Nebbiolo-leaning sense of structure. Sweet red cherry, hard candy, rose petal, mint and exotic spice are all laced together in this expressive, mid-weight Pinot. I am generally not a huge fan of international varieties in Piedmont, but the 2017 is undoubtedly a very pretty wine with tons of sheer allure." Vinous

      "The G.D. Vajra 2017 Langhe Pinot Nero shows a classic portrait of the grape with those beautiful floral and wild berries aromas very much intact. The aromatic intensity and purity of this wine is its biggest attribute. Raspberry, violet, lavender and candied orange peel come into focus. The wine is silky and mild in terms of mouthfeel with a very lovely, light-weight approach. A ruby-colored light shines from within." Robert Parker

    • Barbera d'Alba Superiore DOC 2017

      Barbera d’Alba Superiore DOC 2017

      Barbera d'Alba Superiore by Vajra is a very elegant version of the versatile Barbera grape. Sweet cherries and blackberries are enveloped by savoury hints of black olives and capers. The wine shows great aromatic perfection, length and an accented style. SUPERIORE.DE

      "The 2017 Barbera d'Alba Superiore is plush, racy and flat-out delicious. Raspberry jam, cinnamon, dried flowers, sweet tobacco and cedar all flesh out in a forward, plush Barbera that will drink well right out the gate. The Superiore always needs a few years to fully emerge. I imagine that will be the case here as well. Even so, the 2017 is an especially open-knit version of this wine." Vinous

      "This wine carries the fantasy name "Viola delle Viole," when in fact, its fruit comes from the Bricco delle Viole vineyard and the Bricco Bertone, two sites with different soil types, one adding structure and one adding aromatic purity. The G.D. Vajra 2017 Barbera d'Alba Superiore Viola delle Viole opens to an inky almost impenetrable appearance. The bouquet opens to robust aromas of blackberry jam and cherry preserves. You feel the heat and richness of the vintage, and there's no way around it. The 2017 growing season produced very concentrated fruit with smaller berry size due to heat and drought. In effect, you get a super-sized Barbera that ups the ante in terms of extraction and intensity. There is a point of almost-sweetness on the close followed by good acidity. A pairing with marinated or spicy barbecued meat might work best." Robert Parker

    • "Kyè" Freisa Langhe DOC 2016

      “Kyè" Freisa Langhe DOC 2016

      Vajra has not only recognized the potential of the Freisa grape with Kyè, but has redefined it. The freshness of the grape variety is somewhat reminiscent of Barbera and has a similar structure to the Nebbiolo grape. An explosive wine with dark fruits, violets, minerals, menthol and spices. Incredibly beautiful and multidimensional, the fruit remains primary and the tannins are firm. Elegance all along the line and yet all Freisa, but without the ancient rusticity of this indigenous variety. SUPERIORE.DE

      "I have a thing for the Freisa grape and am very excited to be in front of this sample. The 2016 Langhe Freisa Kyè is named after a colloquial phasing of the question "who is it?" (or "chi è?" in Italian), underlining some of the mystery and allure surrounding this native grape. Freisa is a local favorite, but it is relatively unknown outside of Piedmont. This expression from the fine team at G.D. Vajra opens to a nicely saturated color with dark ruby or garnet highlights. The bouquet offers black cherry, dark fruit and accents of spice or white pepper. Primary fruit is the protagonist and so is that pretty freshness. Fruit comes from vineyards planted closest to the winery at the lower part of Bricco delle Viole. The wine is fermented in stainless steel (to lock in those fresh berry aromas) and is aged in large Slavonian oak casks for 26 months." Robert Parker

      "The 2016 Langhe Freisa Kyé is a gorgeous wine, but it is going to need at least a few years in bottle to be at its very best. Scorched earth, smoke, tobacco, grilled herbs and black pepper give the Kyé its distinctive brooding personality. As always, the Kyé is a powerful, deep wine, but, as in recent years, the style is a bit more restrained than the more explosive wines in the past. The Kyé emerges from a parcel in the Vajra family's Bricco delle Viole home vineyard." Vinous

      “Pétracine” Riesling Langhe DOC 2019 (BIO)

      The pioneer of Riesling on Italian soil is Aldo Vajra. Fascinated by the variety even as a student, he planted the first vines of the White Riesling variety in the Langa. Very pale yellow-green when young, which develops into a strong straw yellow. The aromas of the noble Pètracine also take a varied course. Beginning with peach and apricot, delicate floral and citrus notes follow in his food, while with increasing ripeness, minerality comes to the fore. On the palate it is harmonious and precisely structured, almost austere, fascinatingly complex and long. Great ageing potential! SUPERIORE.DE

      Barolo Albe comes from the three parcels Fossati, Castello della Volta and Costa di Vergne. Brilliant and finely shaped on the palate, expressive floral notes merge with bright red fruits, mint and ground berries to create a lively and distinctive Barolo endowed with pure energy and class. It is juicy and fruity and not only because of its comparatively moderate price a clear buy! SUPERIORE.DE

      "Translucent ruby. Edgy, tarry nose that's very ethereal. Tannic grip and quite a bit of heat on the way there. Floats on the palate – it's certainly not heavy, and has quite enough freshness. Long and relatively open." Jancis Robinson

      "The 2017 Barolo Albe is exquisite. Bright and beautifully lifted, the 2017 Albe is a wine of pure and total pleasure. All the elements come together so gracefully. Crushed flowers, red berries, mint, cinnamon and lavender are some of the many notes that open in the glass. The 2017 is so nicely done in the way it captures the radiance of the year and the classicism that runs through all these wines. Vineyard sites are Fossati, Costa di Vergne and Le Volte." Vinous

      Barolo del Comune di Serralunga d’Alba DOCG 2017

      The Barolo del Comune di Serralunga d'Alba is the most accessible of Luigi Baudana's three Baroli. Precise fruit with wonderful tones of black cherry, plum and cassis. The intensity of the characteristic Nebbiolo licorice and cola takes a bit of a back seat in this wine, as the dark fruit is the leading force. This vintage brings the acidity and natural structure to carry the wine for 10 years or more. And so it is no surprise that this Barolo needs a few more years to develop its full class and finesse. SUPERIORE.DE

      "The 2017 Barolo del Comune di Serralunga d'Alba may very well turn out to be one of the best wines of the year in its peer group. Dark and wonderfully expressive, yet also light on its feet for a Serralunga Barolo, the 2017 has so much going on. Black cherry, plum, spice, gravel, cured meats, lavender and sage all meld together in this dark yet translucent Barolo." Vinous

      "Dark berry, pressed flower, iron, leather and spice aromas come together on this firmly structured wine. The full-bodied palate delivers juicy black cherry, eucalyptus, anise and clove alongside big, velvety tannins. A licorice note closes the lingering finish. It’s already almost approachable but hold for more complexity." Wine Enthusiast

      Barolo “Coste di Rose” DOCG 2017

      Coste di Rose presents itself straightforward, driven forward and impresses already at a young age with its refreshing frankness. Very precise bouquet of cherry, plum, liquorice, spices and menthol, then on the palate a wide and multilayered stretched fruit arch with lots of juice and power, supporting tannins and a full, long, mineral-minty finish. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Youthful mid ruby. Gorgeous, savoury leafy cherry fruit on the nose. Fragrant, elegant fruit palate. Very poised and sappy and with long coating tannins supporting the fruit. Can be approached now." Jancis Robinson

      "The 2017 Barolo Coste di Rose is pretty, supple and inviting. Some of the tannins need to resolve, but this is a young Barolo after all. The Coste di Rose doesn't have the sensuality of the Albe or the pedigree of the Viole, but it nevertheless has so much to give. Crushed flowers, sweet red berry fruit, mint, crushed rocks and sage are some of the many notes that linger. I won't be surprised if the 2017 is even better than this note suggests once it softens a bit." Vinous

    • Barolo "Cerretta" DOCG 2012

      Barolo “Cerretta” DOCG 2012

      Barolo Baudana from the single vineyard Cerretta presents itself energetic and intense with a scent of black cherries, wild herbs, smoke and tar. Convincing also at the palate with multilayered flavours and textures, strength and structure. The powerful tannin and the stately acidity show unmistakably the style of a classic Barolo. SUPERIORE.DE

      "The 2012 Barolo Cerretta is richer, deeper and darker than the Baudana. Black cherry, smoke, licorice and dark spices open up first, followed by scents of sage, rosemary and mint that add complexity. In 2012, the Cerretta is more about brawn than finesse. Layers of fruit fill out the wine's ample frame nicely, but above all else, the Cerretta is distinguished for its raw, almost animal, power." VINOUS

      "A bright, floral-, strawberry-, cherry- and herb-flavored version, allied to an elegant profile. Picks up mineral and tobacco notes as this cruises to a lengthy conclusion. Though stylish, this has ample grip and complexity." Wine Spectator

      "Raspberry compote, star anise, grilled herb and sun baked earth and a whiff of leather are some of the aromas you'll find on this structured Barolo. On the full-bodied palate, chopped mint, licorice and tobacco accent ripe Morello cherry and juicy raspberry." Wine Enthusiast

      "The 2013 Barolo Cerretta is a bit more lifted, aromatic and gracious in style than the Baudana. Sweet red cherry, pine, mint, herbs, licorice and wild flowers give the Cerretta its distinctive lifted personality. In 2013, the Cerretta is a wine of pure and total grace. There is plenty of power, tension and structure, all elements that will need time to resolve." VINOUS

      "Leads off with the scent of rose, followed by strawberry, cherry, mineral and tobacco flavors. Elegant and densely structured, with a lingering aftertaste of leafy and tobacco notes." Wine Spectator

Convincing also at the palate with multilayered flavours and textures, strength and structure. The powerful tannin and the stately acidity show unmistakably the style of a classic Barolo. SUPERIORE.DE

      "The Cerretta vineyard is distinguished by thick red clay soils at its lower elevations. This segment of the vineyard provides the power and structure that holds this wine so firmly together. Indeed, that sense of power and dark fruit momentum outpaces the delicate and nuanced characteristics that are generally attributed to the cooler and immediate 2014 vintage. The 2014 Barolo Cerretta is a powerhouse wine—packed tight with dark fruit, spice and licorice—that should hold steady over the next 10-20 years of cellar aging." Robert Parker

      "Gravitas and pure power are the signatures of the 2014 Barolo Cerretta. The black cherry, plum, lavender, sage and menthol notes add to an impression of dark, brooding intensity to go with the wine's vertical sense of structure. This tannic, massive Barolo is likely to require a number of years in bottle to become approachable." VINOUS

    • Barolo "Cerretta" DOCG 2015

      Barolo “Cerretta” DOCG 2015

      Deep red with ruby reflections. In the nose ethereal-sweet aromas of black cherry. Cerretta 2015 from the single vineyard of the same name is even juicier and tighter on the palate than the Baudana. Its character is fresher and more primary in the overall line of all Vajra Barolo, but clearly harder and with initially young and dry tannins. This tightly packed Barolo gains sweetness and complexity with aeration. Like the Baudana and Bricco dell Viole bottlings, it demands several years of patience from its owner, which, however, will then be exuberantly rewarded. No wine for beginners, if I may say so. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Some ten years ago, Aldo Vajra leased and subsequently bought this small Serralunga property. Ceretta can be an austere wine but this hot vintage suited it and Vajra employed a long, submerged-cap fermentation to extract the finest tannins. It's deep in colour, rich and full-bodied with ample cherry fruit. It's very ripe but forceful too, enhanced by a velvety texture and fine structure. Harmonious and long." Decanter

      "The 2015 Barolo Cerretta offers a slightly richer and textured expression from Serralunga d'Alba fruit. The wine is slightly riper compared to the Barolo Baudana from the same vintage, with dark fruit aromas of wild cherry, rose, cola and tilled earth. The wine is similarly tight and firm at its core; however, this Nebbiolo from the Cerretta vineyard offers more succulent padding and volume." Robert Parker

      "Ripe and juicy, displaying macerated cherry and plum flavors, complemented by menthol and rosemary notes. A line of mineral underscores all the elements, revealing a dense matrix of fine tannins on the finish." Wine Spectator

      Barolo “Baudana” DOCG 2014

      Fresh, sparkling ruby garnet. Opens with notes of pickled anchovies, then leather and dark wild raspberry. At the palate a lot of close-meshed, stoffiges tannin, pulls through rapidly, fine fruit, in the final firm pressure. Put away for some more years. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Leasing and then acquiring the Luigi Baudana estate in Serralunga has given the Vajra family access to more fine vineyards. The result in 2014 is a delight, with a sweet, generous raspberry nose that shows both zest and charm. Medium-bodied, this is made in a gentle style that's not extracted but has sufficient tannin to give some grip. A firm mid-palate shows solid fruit and good persistence, followed by a long, balanced finish." Decanter

      "Flavors of cherry, currant, eucalyptus, wild herbs, tar and iron are supported by dense tannins in this red. Though firm and compact, this remains long and detailed on the finish." Wine Spectator

      "Located beyond the sprawling Fontanafredda estate, Baudana has consistently maintained its reputation for top-notch Nebbiolo. In fact, those who farmed this vineyard never had difficulty selling its fruit. Barolo Baudana was one of the first crus to be exported successfully into foreign markets. The site sees sandy limestone mixed with veins of heavier blue clay. You get both elegance and structure as a result. The 2014 Barolo Baudana reveals black and purple fruit characteristics with ethereal tones of smoke, tar and spice on the finish." Robert Parker

      "A darker side of Nebbiolo emerges from the 2014 Barolo Baudana. Powerful but also supple, the 2014 is a wine of pure, arresting beauty. Sweet red cherry, kirsch and floral notes meld together in a striking, textured Barolo that is a joy to taste, even at this early stage." VINOUS

      Barolo Ravera DOCG 2014

      Barolo Ravera from Vajra is an earthy, rich wine with a robust tannin structure and a well measured acidity - an impressive wine, whose climax in the next few years can already be looked forward to. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Tasted blind. Surprisingly dark ruby for this vintage. Brooding richness on the nose. Plenty of sour cherry on the palate and firm, somewhat drying tannins. This is still very youthful, and unsettled." Jancis Robinson

      "This rich red is laced with cherry fruit and feels approachable now. Offers firm underlying tannins, along with accents of mineral and tobacco. Balanced, with a long finish." Wine Spectator

      "A stark contrast to the Bricco delle Viole, Vajra's 2014 Barolo Ravera is a tannic, powerful wine. There is quite a bit of power and depth, but the tannins are also rustic and a touch rough around the edges. The 2014 is going to need time to settle down." VINOUS

      "The 2014 Barolo Ravera is indeed a fuller and more structured expression. The bouquet opens to dark fruit, iodine and mineral nuances. Ravera is a low-altitude vineyard from an estate that is specialized in high-altitude Nebbiolo farming. That added power is well suited to this thinner vintage." Robert Parker

      Fresh, sparkling ruby garnet. Opens with notes of pickled anchovies, then leather and dark wild raspberry. At the palate a lot of close-meshed, stoffiges tannin, pulls through rapidly, fine fruit, in the final firm pressure. Put away for some more years. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Brilliant, medium ruby. Seems austere and quite closed in mouth and nose. Only with air a scent of red berries and floral hints develops. At the palate classic tannin structure, connected with a slowly intensifying, very pure fruit. Exceedingly vital, lots of inner tension and minerality." Weinwisser

      "The 2013 Barolo Baudana opens with striking, beguiling aromatics. Deep, pliant and sensual on the palate, the 2013 exudes fruit intensity to the point the tannins are nearly buried. Intense savory and mineral notes provide an underpinning of virile intensity that builds into the super-expressive finish." VINOUS

      "Seems open and forthcoming for the cherry, black currant and floral aromas and flavors, but this red has some punch too. The dense tannins provide support, while tobacco, green olive and mineral notes add depth. Terrific length." Wine Spectator

    • Barolo Ravera DOCG 2017

      Barolo Ravera DOCG 2017

      Ravera is the most powerful of Vajra's formidable Barolo line-up every year. Radiant, intense ruby red. Very intense, fruity nose with notes of ripe wild raspberries, blackberries, also some dark currant juice, in the background some laurel. Ravera presents itself very juicy in approach and course, shows a lot of crisp cherry fruit, opens with fine-meshed, present tannin, which is very well integrated. In the final a long reverberation. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Transparent garnet. Broad, sweet, chestnut sort of aromas on the nose. Big-shouldered and quite concentrated. Very complete and with a minerally undertow. This is a bit of a charmer with great presence. Even a hint of red-cherry fruit that seems to be overpowering the (considerable) tannin. Beautiful balance in this evidently serious wine." Jancis Robinson

      "The 2017 Barolo Ravera is gorgeous right out of the gate. I am so impressed with its depth and pedigree. Rose petal, sweet red berry fruit, lavender, spice and dried herbs are all finely delineated in a Barolo of tremendous presence. Orange peel, cinnamon and cedar develop later, adding shades of dimension. Time in the glass brings out the wine's stature and power. The 2017 is going to be fascinating to follow. Today, it is just breathtaking. That's all there is to it." Vinous

      Barolo “Baudana” DOCG 2017

      Black cherry fruit, smoke, wild herbs, licorice and tar create a compelling backdrop of aromas, flavors and textures as this dazzling, energetic Barolo opens in the glass. The intense final is accompanied by delicate rose petals, lavender and a subtle mineral-salty vein. Its stable tannin framework awaits a few more years of bottle aging, as is typically the case with a classic Serralunga Barolo. A wine full of energy and intensity. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Youthful mid ruby. Perfumed and inviting with earthy hints and concentrated fruit. Generous mouthful of cherry, which at the same time is very contained and with a good dose of acidity. Very fine, persistent tannins underneath clinging to the fruit. Finely balanced and nervy at the same time." Jancis Robinson

      "The 2017 Barolo Baudana is such a gorgeous wine. It, too conveys the power of Serralunga, but with a bit less heft than is typically the case. Sweet dark cherry, iron, cedar, rose petal, mint and white pepper give the 2017 its effusive, inviting personality. This is such a tremendous showing." Vinous

      "Youthful ruby. Minerally, smoky/earthy cherry nose with a hint of exotic spice and black tea leaves. Lots of concentration but at the moment more subdued than their 2017 Baudana. Gorgeous, supple fruit and rich, truly powerful tannins that are still a little demanding right now. Concentrated, austere and still closed, but with lots of potential." Jancis Robinson

      "A dark, somber wine, the 2017 Barolo Cerretta shows the more potent, brooding side of Serralunga. Black cherry, gravel, smoke, cured meats, cloves and menthol add to an impression of virile intensity and pure power. Readers will have to be patient here, but there is certainly a ton to look forward to. This is another impressive showing from Baudana and the Vajra family." Vinous

    About the winemakersG.D. VajraPiedmont
    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.

    "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
