G.D. Vajra Langhe Rosso, 2014

This is an absolutely gorgeous wine. It's ready to drink now, with loads of aromatic intensity, but is likely to develop even further over the next few years.

Beautiful ruby red. The wine is mostly Nebbiolo, and the hallmarks aromas are there--dark cherries, roses, licorice. There is also Barbera, Dolcetto and Freisa also adding their distinctive traits. The Freisa, in particular, adds a haunting floral character. Oh, I love this wine. And on the palate, it's even better. Perfect balance of acid and tannin. Fresh and lively; perfect match for tomato-based pasta.
