2022 - Dolcetto d'Alba - Italy

G.D. Vajra, a young vineyard with rich roots, was one of the earliest to begin organic farming in the Piemonte area. With their organic practices, they focus not only on the vines but also on the fields and forest throughout the vineyard. Vajra produces a beautiful deep purple Dolcetto that has wild berry and mulberry with hints of white pepper and sweet spices. On the palate, there is a cascade of blue fruits and fresh plums with a smooth tart finish. The Dolcetto is harvested between the end of August and the middle of September. The vinification process can last between 15 to 20 days. The grapes are racked twice prior to malolactic fermentation, which is done in stainless steel vats. The aging is also done in stainless steel vats, and the bottling happens during the waning moon in spring. Egg pasta, pizza, and vegetarian plates are great dishes to be paired with this Italian red.
