G. D. Vajra Langhe Rosso 2020

Langhe, Cuneo, Piedmont, ItalyLanghe Rosso is the stepping stone to Barbaresco and Barolo, and an increased focus on this wine style is paying dividends across Piemonte. Its price and quality ratio is hard to beat, as exemplified by the delicious drinking Varja. It is a mix of younger vines, including Nebbiolo, barbera, dolcetto, freesia, albatross, and pinot noir, from a solid vintage that speaks Piemonte. Cherries and plums and floral rose notes with only a modicum of tannin that runs throughout a mineral, light sea salt finish—a classy wine for lunch or mid-week dinner pick.Tasted: 24 January 2024Tasted by: Prices:
