G.D. Vajra ‘Rosabella’ Rosato
85% Nebbiolo, 5% Barbera, 10% Dolcetto / Organic
Barolo, Piedmont, Italy 2019
Vajra is a favorite of ours in the amazing world of all things Nebbiolo. From Barolo to Bubbly and right on down to this little pink beauty right here. There are very few producers in Barolo who would dare to allocate some of their precious juice towards a Rosé wine, but the results of such delicious madness is something to be experienced.
Layers of delicate detail as one should expect from Nebbiolo, but in its most delightful and fresh form. Crunchy in texture with hibiscus, dried rose petals and blood oranges balanced with a laser beam of focused minerality. Inevitably way too easy to drink, but this wine carries a caché of complexity that puts it at the top of our list each and every Rosé season.
