G.D. Vajra Langhe Rosso*
There are only a few wines that we have sold continuously and enthusiastically for many, many years,and this is one of them. G.D. (Giuseppe Domenico) Vajra is a family winery established in 1972 high in the Commune of Barolo. With their first vintage they achieved the first Organic certification in the Piedmont, and have been leaders in non-interventionist farming and winemaking since the 1970s.Langhe, from an old dialect word for ‘hills’, is a region rich in food and wine history.It is the birthplace of the Slow Food Movement, and is home to Barolo and Barbaresco, the most famous expressions of the Nebbiolo grape. Other terrific grapes grown in the region include Barbera and Dolcetto, and all three of these are present in this Langhe Rosso, as well as the rare Freisa and Albarossa. When customers ask us for the most immediately friendly and flexible Italian red wine;or when they are seeking an extraordinarily reasonably priced organic wine from a small family winery, this immediately comes to mind. This is a wine to buy in quantity.
