Bright ruby red color. Perfumes are vibrant with a floral bouquet of rose petals, violet, fresh berries, and hints of dark fruit.
Elegant and complex on the palate with layers of crunchy red fruits, orange peel, and sweet spices with earthy and mineral undertones.
The fruit was picked between October 7th and 22nd. Picking decisions are individual to each site and sometimes there are multiple passes to respect the diversity of each vine. Fermentation lasted 19 days on average and was followed by spontaneous malolactic fermentation.
Growing: in 1971, Aldo Vajra, then still a university student, was one of the earliest to adopt organic farming in Piemonte. Vineyards have been nurtured, and soil preserved, by grassing and spontaneous cover crop for almost 50 years now. They are sustainable certified [UNI EN 11233:2009] and organic certified. With an incredible ratio of manual work per hectare, farming at Vajra is a labor of love and "recipe-free" attention. Intense research is also placed into monitoring and improving the biodiversity of both flora and fauna not just in the vineyards, but also in the winery's fields and forests.
