G.D. Vajra - Baudana Barolo

This tiny estate is one of the secret gems of Piemonte. Adored by insiders, G.D. Vajra (pronounced VIE-rah) makes arresting wines that combine wondrous purity and quiet power. Established by Aldo and Milena Vaira in 1972, the Vajra estate spans 60 hectares of top rated plots planted to classic Piedmontese grapes like Nebbiolo and Barbera. Some of the vineyards were planted by Aldo’s father in 1947, and others between 1969 and 2004, all located on high-hung slopes and rooted in signature calcareous soils. Aldo’s eldest son, Giuseppe chose to forgo his dream to be a heart surgeon, and now makes the wines. Grape farming is sustainable, all fermentations involve indigenous yeasts, and Slavonian oak barrels are used for gentle ageing. This Barolo bears the name of a tiny estate that Aldo bought in 2009, thus acquiring some of Serralunga’s finest parcels. Known for their approachable Barolos, this fruit-forward 2011 edition is delightfully accessible now, but has true potential for a wonderful bottle evolution. Classic aromas of tar and roses with exotic orange oil, and Nebbiolo’s rugged tannins, breathtaking acidity, and spicy body – all in harmonious balance. Showing Serralunga’s expected masculine architecture, you’ll want to pair this substantial Barolo with osso bucco or truffled pecorino cheese.
