WineO Mark Review

This wine has a dark purplish color on the glass. It has an intense aroma filled with cherries, berries, plums, and blackberries with notes of lavender, oak, earth, and spices.

It’s a medium-bodied wine that’s smooth, rounded, and has an incredible structure. It has a slight tannic that’s rich, balanced acidity, and a long finish. There are flavors of plums, cherries, blackberries, and blueberries followed by hints of toasted oak and spices. Plus it has a lively acidity and soft tannins, supporting a bounty of juicy fruit flavors and subtle nuances of licorice and earth.

Overall, this approachable and versatile wine is a true testament to G.D. Vajra’s dedication to showcasing the potential of the Barbera grape and the unique character of the Alba region.
