    Winemaker's Notes:

    Vajra has as much passion and work just as hard for their Dolcetto as they do for their Nebbiolo. It's a vibrant and delicious wine that's full of dark fruit and aromas of herbs, red flowers ans spice. The wine rests in large neutral Slovenian oak cask for a short time so it can breath and reach wonderful vinous levels not seen in ordinary Dolcetto.

    2009 was a great vintage for this variety, Dolcetto ripens early and needs a good sunny run through the late summer and early fall coupled with cool nights to finish the last of the phenolics and boost aromatics.

    Dolcetto of this quality is a fantastic food wine, try pairing with braised meats, osso buco, salumi, hearty meat and mushroom pastas.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2009 Dolcetto d’Alba is everything Dolcetto should be; fresh, varietally correct and clean. Here all of those qualities are given an extra measure of elegance and sheer class. Fresh mint, blueberries and licorice linger on the subtle finish. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2013.

    enjoyed this wine with some cheese - quite delicious, with a pleasant finish and a satisfying body of flavors.
