G. D. Vajra Langhe Nebbiolo 2018
The 2018 Langhe Nebbiolo emerges from a parcel in Sinio. Dark fruit, spice, earthy notes and a good bit of tannin give the Vajra's Langhe Nebbiolo a decidedly brooding, powerful feel and quite a bit more seriousness than is typical at this level. Sweet red berry fruit, mint and spice add freshness alongside bright acidity as the 2018 opens up in the glass. This is such a pretty and expressive wine.
Graphite and eucalyptus aromas lead off, followed by flavors of cherry, strawberry, earth and underbrush. This has intensity, energy and moderate length. Drink now through 2023. 2,500 cases made.
