Why G.D. Vajra?
“G.D. Vajra is less than 50 years old - very young by Barolo standards. At 15 years old, Aldo Vajra was sent away to the country to spend the summer with his grandparents, far away from trouble and 1960’s street protests of Torino. This time spent in the vineyards inspired his love and vision for his own family-run winery.
I was determined to visit them and in October 2016 I did with Aldo’s daughter, Francesca. It was pouring rain and a great season for truffles. I was impressed at how harmonious yet structured the wines were and the range for such a young producer and am impressed with each vintage.
The wine that really seduced me was the “JC Claret” Langhe Nebbiolo, made according to a 1606 note from the House of Savoia jeweler Gian Battista Croce. This wine is a time-capsule into an era when Nebbiolo was light, pale ruby in color, and slightly effervescent. I also absolutely love their Barolo Chinato. It’s one of the best!” - Sally Kim, DRG Wine Director
