Dolcetto is the flagship grape of Piemonte because the beguiling sweetness of its fruit is perfectly balanced by its ripe tannins, which make for a magical food wine that just comes alive at the table and brings everything else along with it.

Vajra’s Dolcetto comes from grapes in the Barolo commune as well as from nearby Novello, still in the Barolo DOCG.  Vinified and aged in stainless steel to retain the exuberant fresh fruit, it is aged in bottle for a few months before release in the summer following the harvest.

Deep violet in color, the nose is of red and wild berries leaning to cherries w some herbal notes.  The gentle tannins are a perfect match for the moderate, but very fresh acidity.
