    Winemaker Notes

    The G.D Vajra Freisa Kye comes from the San Ponzio Vineyard in the commune of Barolo. With elevation between 390-400 meters, the vineyards have clay-rich soils with vines averaging 30 years of age. Sustainably farmed, the wine is aged for 12-18 months in Slavonian oak barrels and barriques until it achieves necessary balance. The G.D Vajra Freisa Kye is made from 100% Freisa, a grape variety that is lesser known despite its ancient relationship to the Nebbiolo grape. The G.D Vajra Freisa Kye is deep ruby in color displaying notes of red berries, roses, tobacco and a hint of white pepper. Full bodied with balanced acidity, this wine is rich and delivers a long and lasting finish.

    G.D. Vajra Winery Video

    The Vajra family has farmed Bricco delle Viole, the highest cru in Comune di Barolo, since the 1880s. At the young age of fifteen, Aldo Vajra embraced the dream to revive his family legacy. Displaying a vision and commitment belying his young age he took over the estate in 1968, turning a new page.

    Aldo soon acquired the first organic certification of the region (1971), created private biotype selections (selezioni massali) of Nebbiolo and Dolcetto, pioneered the renaissance of Freisa, a noble yet forgotten local grape (1980) and the cultivation of Rhine Riesling in Piemonte (1985).

    Today, the Vajra family continues the vineyard research focusing on the influence of soil and climate change. The winery is trail-blazing the rediscovery of Chiaretto di Nebbiolo and the wines of the 17th century – long before Barolo was created - through two limited-production wines: “N.S. della Neve” (a champagne-method rosé nature) and “Claré JC”, a partial whole-cluster fermentation of pure Nebbiolo.  

    High elevation vineyards are a unique factor to the Vajra wines, for their ability to express finesse and remarkable complexity over power.

    Attention to details and humility towards the nature, uncompromised efforts and humanity: so are Aldo and Milena, now joined by their energetic children Giuseppe, Francesca and Isidoro, and by an amazing team of young professionals, in their quest for an authentic expression of their land into the wines. G.D. Vajra is an independent winery, entirely family-owned.

    Attracting the most glory, prestige and fame to the Piedmont region, Nebbiolo in all of its expressions—Barolo, Barbaresco, Roero, Ghemme and Gattinara—creates a complex wine, truly unique for its delicate qualities combined with strength and a great potential to improve over time.

    But Nebbiolo isn’t all there is to red wine from Piedmont! Barbera is the most planted variety and historically most popular as a dependable, food-friendly, everyday wine.

    Beyond these two, a surprising number of red varieties call Piedmont their home. Worth a try include Dolcetto for its bold concentration and aromas of spice cake. Other grapes to investigate include Freisa, Croatina, Brachetto, Grignolino and Pelaverga.
