Winemaker's Notes:

Pale yellow color. Very refined fizz, persistent and creamy. Scents of yellow fruits like peach, apricot and citrus followed by herbal hints and exotic fruit. On the palate, bright and pure. The sweet and crispy feeling are greatly integrated and leave the palate clean. Long finish.
My Notes:

About G.D. Vajra:

The winery is located at West side of Barolo Common, in Vergne locality. Inherited in 1972 by Aldo Vaira it's, today, a solid reality where the wine quality and the love for work are principal features. Here, the typical vines of Piedmont are cultivated with a great respect for the vocation of every plot of land. The history says that these lands have been formed millions of years ago, and geologically must be referred to as the Tortonian, the typical soil of Barolo and La Morra, with calcareous marl, white and blue, inserted into rocky residuals. Thanks to that, the wines are elegant, fragrant, fruity with a particular aging capacity.
