G.D. Varja

Aldo Vaira's wines are characterised by pristine flavours and clearly defined perfumes These characters are attributable to the position of his vineyards at about 400 metres above sea level, in the village of Vergne in the commune of Barolo. G. D. Vajra was established in 1972 and named after Aldo's father, Giuseppe Domenico Vajra. Aldo has been gradually increasing the area under vine to 60 hectares, of which 10 are Nebbiolo for Barolo, located in such strategic spots as Bricco delle Viole, Dossati, La Volta and Coste di Vergne. A traditionalist, Aldo adheres to old-style winemaking methods – although blending them with new techniques such as temperature-controlled fermentation – to produce superbly elegant and pure wines.
