IT'S ALL IN THE DETAILS

Grapes are grown in Vajra's vineyards, located in Coste di Vergne, Fossati and Pascolo in the Barolo region and in the Ravera in Nerollo region. The vines are trained in mixed Guyot system and planting dates range from 1982-2002. The soil is a mix of limestone and marl.

Fermentation took place in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks for 6-10 days at 30°C with frequent pumping over for maximum extraction of colour and tannin. The wine was aged in stainless steel tanks until the following spring.

Aromas and flavours of violets, red fruits and berries, marasca cherries and hay. Smooth and open on the palate, it is balanced with refined tannins and lightened by a fresh acidity.Great depth of colour with the lovely herbal berry notes characteristic of good Dolcetto. Red, black and blueberries with a touch of dried summer herbs such as marjoram and thyme follow through to the palate where the solid tannic structure of this variety gives structure and weight to the berry fruit character. Black cherry notes carry through to the finish.
