The Vajra family are master winemakers in the Commune of Barolo, specializing in the very western corner where the Langhe hills begin to rub up against the Alps. Active since the nineteenth century, the property was revitalised in 1968 by Aldo Vajra. Since taking the helm, Aldo has remained an influential force in Barolo, pioneering organic viticulture and resuscitating lesser-known varieties like Freisa. Aldo’s passion for his craft is shared by his children who now join him in the vines and cellar.
While the Vajras are progressive in their actions, their wines are classic. Farming is meticulous and vinification of the estate’s flagship Barolos, from magnificent high altitude crus, follows the time-honored protocol of long fermentation and aging in large neutral oak barrels.
The resulting wines are known for, more than anything else, their purity. Vajra makes Barolo so airy that it seems to float, its essence of Nebbiolo wafting from the glass and seeping across your palate like mist.

Professional Reviews

"Showing a very pretty pink color, the 2020 Rosabella (in a screw-cap bottle) is perfect for a hot summer afternoon. The wine is bright and fresh, with pretty tones of peach, pink grapefruit and a touch of redcurrant. The whole presentation is simple, but this informal Nebbiolo-based rosé (with tiny parts Barbera and Dolcetto) hits all its marks." -Robert Parker
