After a short pause we are back with a new Wine of the Month, this time by Asa.
The wine producer G D Vajra was one of the most memorable visits on one of our recent wine tours to Piemonte. Very friendly and charming people, beautiful site, and very good wines. Their wines are well know for their aging potential. One of their “entry level” wines is the Langhe Nebbiolo DOC.
The one I tasted recently was a 2009. Ruby red with lots of aromas and good complexity with notes of red berries (lingonberries in particular). It has a warm structure, soft but also fresh and in the end “balanced” is a very good description. In the finish it has hints of balsamic vinegar.
It goes well with meat, pasta with meat sauces, both game or beef, or food with creamy sauces. Or a nicely aged cheese. And if you would like to try an elegant Barolo G D Vajra is a good choice. Price for the Langhe nebbiolo ~ 12.50€.
