G D Vajra G D Vajra "Bricco Delle Viole" Barolo 2008

The estate of GD Vajra (named for its current operator Aldo Vajra's grandfather, Giuseppe Domenico), is situated in Vergne, the highest village in the Commune of Barolo. Its vineyards are planted at heights of 350-400 metres, which results in distinctive and aromatic wines. The 'Bricco delle Viole' demonstrates a what a truly classic Barolo is all about; violets, roses and perfumed fruit backed by robust but balancing tannin. Lovely!

The 'Bricco delle Viole' vineyard is located in the commune of Barolo. The average yield is 45hl/ha. One part of the vineyard is planted with vines which are now over fifty years old. The yield of these old vines is less than 30hl/ha.

The name Nebbiolo comes from the Italian 'nebbia' meaning fog and refers to the weather at the time of harvest. Nebbiolo is always the last grape to be picked in Piemonte and harvest can be as late as the end of October/beginning of November, when the weather starts to get cold and autumnal.

100% Nebbiolo

Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks at temperatures less than 32°C. It lasted for three weeks.

The wine was matured for forty two months oak in 25/30hl Slovenian oak barrels.

Deep ruby in colour with a garnet rim. Made in the classic Vajra style with lovely perfumes of dried rose petals, orange peel and violets. The palate shows plenty of fine grained, ripe, tannins that are characteristic of Nebbiolo, and lots of elegant, dark cherry fruit with savoury notes adding more depth. Long and perfumed on the finish.
