G D Vajra Moscato d'Asti 2020
Aldo Vajra's wines are characterised by pristine flavours and clearly defined perfumes. These characters are attributable to the position of Vajra's vineyards at about 400 metres above sea level in the village of Vergne in the commune of Barolo. In the 2004 vintage, we arranged for Australian winemaker Stephen Pannell, who is besotted by Nebbiolo and Barbera, to work the vintage with Aldo who has taken many of his tips to heart. Vajra grows his Moscato grapes in a single vineyard site in Mango, in the heart of the Moscato d'Asti zone. It is a south-facing, 2.5 hectare vineyard planted on a very steep slope. Grapes were hand harvested in the first week of September.
