2021 G.D. Vajra Barbera d'Alba Piedmont
Winemaker Notes: Vajra's Barbera d’Alba comes from grapes grown on ancient soils, traced to three different geological ages: Tortonian, Serravallian and Messinian. The resulting wine is refined and savoury, charming and complex and easily combined with any meal.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - "Here’s another food-friendly wine from beautiful Piedmont. The 2021 Barbera d'Alba shows a dark purplish hue and saturated fruit flavors of dried blackberry and black cherry. There are hints of crushed mineral or oyster shell as well. The wine’s medium thickness would work across a breaded veal steak. Fruit is sourced across various sites with different soil types."
Wine & Spirits - "Scents of lavender and violet lead into flavors of fleshy plum and blackberry that are infused with lively acidity and layered with notes of soft spice. Its taut plum-skin tannins frame the flavors and make this an excellent partner for burgers or just about anything off the grill."
