GD Vajra Clare JC Langhe Nebbiolo 2019
100% Nebbiolo. Darker than a rosé, but not dark or big enough for a red. The Vajra family has created something truly unique and versatile with their Claré J.C.. It is a wine style the Italians would call, cerasuolo, and it is filled with bright red fruit, fresh mountain herbs, and wet stone. Perfect for a variety of foods and occasions, this wine is a must try!
"Wow, the 2019 Vajra Clare JC explodes from the glass with masses of crushed raspberry and strawberry fruits, complicated by sweet and savory herbs, along with crushed stone minerality. On the palate, fleshy textures are quickly firmed up by a mix of tart red berries, with zesty acids, a slight frizzante spritz, and a coating of liquid violet florals. The finish is long and lightly structured, displaying a lasting and unmistakable note of red licorice with hints of spiced orange. This is wonderfully expressive and bridges the gap between Red and Rosé; please pour me another. Of note, the 2019 Claré JC was gently fermented with about 20% whole cluster fruit with malolactic completed in stainless steel, hence the perceivable effervescence." - Eric Guido
