A hue of violet red. Aromas of red fruits, plums, underbrush as well as floral and spicy fragrances intrigue your senses from the very first moment. A nice correspondence on the palate where hints of almond, black pepper and Asian spices come together for a nice refreshing finish.
Langhe Rosso is a taste of Piemonte, a way to explore its different varieties and get to know its personality better. Coming from young vines, it is fruity and crisp with nice structure. It is the ideal food-friendly wine.
|Wine maker notes
|Different vineyards, but most of all grape varieties come together in perfect unison for this blend of Langhe Rosso. Tannins and aromas from Nebbiolo and Dolcetto give
structure and elegance to the wine. Barbera adds freshness and personality, while the bouquet of fruit and spices can be attributed to the Freisa. Albarossa, always present, at times coalesces smoothly into the blend while at others, stands out with its uniqueness. And last but not least comes the finesse of Pinot Noir.

|The estate of G.D. Vajra, situated in Vergne the highest village in the Commune of Barolo, was
established in 1972 by Giuseppe Domenico. Milena and Aldo Vaira are the current owners.
Both have worked the vineyards since the early 1970s. Vajra currently owns 40 sustainably
farmed hectares in such strategic spots as Bricco delle Viole, Fossati, La Volta, Coste di Vergne.
The vineyards are planted with Nebbiolo, Dolcetto and Barbera at elevations between 350-400
meters, which results in distinctive and aromatic wines. Their philosophy remains faithful to the
traditional wines of Piedmont. "I try to make wines that give people joy. In the past wine was a
food, it was necessary for sustenance. Today that is not the case; we choose to drink for
pleasure. I want to make wines that bring people happiness.” ~ Aldo Vajra
