Trusted Shops Reviews

G.D. Vajra Barolo Bricco delle Viole is a barrel-aged red wine made by G.D. Vajra with the Nebbiolo variety in the prestigious DOCG Barolo (Piedmont) Italian denomination.

The G.D. Vajra winery lies in the highest town of Barolo, in Piedmont. Named after its founder in 1972, Giuseppe Domenico Vajra knew how to make the best of his family vineyards when there was the Barolo boom. Currently the winery is run by his son Aldo. A family project with 40 hectares of vineyards that guarantee excellent quality grapes and unrivalled wines.

The grapes used to make the G.D. Vajra Barolo Bricco delle Viole wine come from Vajra’s oldest vineyards. These vines are planted in clay and calcareous soil, at 400-480 metres above sea level and with a stable and temperate climate. Sustainable agriculture is practiced and the harvest is carried out manually when the grapes are very ripe.

In the winery, the G.D. Vajra Barolo Bricco delle Viole grapes are firstly gently selected and squeezed. They then macerate with skins and ferment with skins for 30-40 days. Finally, the wine ages for 42-48 months in large Slavic oak barrels and then in the bottle.

G.D. Vajra Barolo Bricco delle Viole is a great way to enjoy an authentic Barolo. An iconic wine with a long life in the bottle.
