PRODUCT OVERVIEW:
The Vajra family has been farming in Piedmont since the 1880s, but it was Aldo Vajra's determination and commitment that made the estate a formidable player in Piedmont. He took over the family operation in 1968; since then he has obtained organic certification for his vineyards and winery and led the efforts to revitalize the almost extinct freisa varietal. He has increased the family holdings to 40 hectares of vineyards and adheres to traditional winemaking methods because he believes that they result in purer expressions of grape and terroir. We can't argue; everything we have tried from his portfolio of wines has been nothing short of stunning.   

The Rosabella Rosato is made in the "saignée" method: Saignée is a French term that means “to bleed.” In terms of winemaking, that's a reference to the act of “bleeding off” juice from a tank of red grape juice that is just beginning to ferment, before the juice has fully extracted the color and tannins from the grape skins (that happens later, during maceration). The Saignée method serves two purposes: Not only is it used to produce rosé wine, but it also serves to concentrate the remaining juice that is left behind, which is made into red wine. (Dear Dr. Vinny, Wine Spectator, 7/29/19)

The 2021 G.D Vajra Rosabella Rosado is crafted from 90% nebbiolo, with the remaining 10% dolcetto and barbera. Heady, floral aromatics lead to a bright and juicy palate of red cherries, raspberries, rhubarb, and a hint of strawberries, with a thread of stony minerality and bright acidity that brings it to a long finish. It will be a terrific addition to any meal that includes chicken, seafood, or light pasta dishes, and will even pair well with barbecued meats! Of course, it will be thoroughly enjoyable all by itself on a warm, sunny day.
