GD Vajra Barolo Albe 2016
100% Nebbiolo. GD Vajra is one of our yearly favorites here at Luckysomm. Everything about the family and their wines we absolutely love. The Vajra family has farmed in Barolo since the 1880s. At the young age of fifteen, Aldo Vajra embraced the dream to revive his family legacy while displaying a vision and commitment belying his young age he took over the estate in 1968, turning a new page. Aldo soon acquired the first organic certification of the region, in 1971. Today, Aldo and Milena, now joined by their children Giuseppe, Francesca, and Isidoro while the family traditions of attention to detail, humility towards nature, and humanity still hold true. 2016 is one of the greatest Barolo vintages ever and no wines from this vintage should be missed! The Vajra family has crafted a tremendous Barolo here. A blend of all their high elevation vineyards, this wine is fresh, lively, and complex instead of just being simply about power. Enjoy this with food or by itself over many hours.
