2014 Barolo Le Alba, GD Vajra, Piemonte, Italy 6x75cl


G.D. Vajra was established in 1972 and named after Aldo's father, Giuseppe Domenico. Aldo Vaira's wines are characterised by pristine flavours and clearly defined perfumes. These characters are attributable to the position of his vineyards at about 400 metres above sea level in the village of Vergne in the commune of Barolo.
The grapes for this wine are grown in three different vineyards: Fossati, which faces south-east and was planted between 1969-2004, Coste di Vergne, which faces south-west, planted in 1995, and the 180º east-west vineyard of La Volta, planted between 1998-2000. The vineyards are located at 400-440 metres above sea level and are all in the Commune of Barolo. Sustainable viticulture is used in all the vineyards and there is no irrigation. Training is by mixed Guyot and a green harvest usually takes place according to vigour and the climate during the growing season.
This wine is a ruby red colour, with aromas of red fruits and plums combining with floral notes, pine needles and brushwood. 'Le Albe' is full of sophisticated and delicate flavours supported by ripe tannins and an elegant acidity.
