G. D. Vajra Barbera d'Alba 2011
Save $6.00 (20%)
Vajra's Barbera d'Alba is a blend of six vineyards. Five are planted in the white/blue Tortonian soils of Barolo comune and one is in the comune of Sino just outside the Barolo zone on the east side of Serralunga comune. Here the Helevitian soils give the Barbera a wonderful dark and graphite note. This is a wonderful Barbera, loaded with fruit and crisp acidity, but due to longer macerations it has great complexity.
A graphite aroma segues to cherry, raspberry and spice flavors in this stylish version, supple and polished, with a long aftertaste of fresh fruit and sweet spices. Drink now through 2018. 4,800 cases made.
