G.D. Vajra Barbera 2020
G.D. Vajra is another rockstar amongst the other rock gods in Piemonte. They excel at Barolo with their single-vineyard wines and their "Normale" - which is a term that gets used here in the U.S., but there is nothing normal about any of their wines. Today we are offering a wine that should be three times the price, but we are happy it isn't. This Barbera is like hawthorn berries, dried cherry, and a fresh pop at the end. Like a great Beaujolais, it benefits from being served at cellar temperate. Put this on ice for a few minutes, pull the cork, and you have the perfect summer wine for charcuterie on the deck.
