Description

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).

The nose is rich and vibrant, displaying purple flowers, blueberries and plum, with a hint of sweet spices and fresh thyme. The palate is dense and layered, absolutely charming and caressing, showing elegant acidity, ripe fruits such as sweet blackberries, cranberries and a lingering finish of licorice and anise.
