G.D. Vajra Langhe Nebbiolo 2017 Review

If you've heard about the wonders of Barolo but want to see what all the fuss is about before spending some serious cash, seek out this bottle. It's made using the same grape variety (Nebbiolo), but arrives in a much more youthful, approachable, and affordable guise. Its aromas include concentrated sour cherry and hints of violets and plums. The palate has vibrant acidity and rigid, well-incorporated tannins. At this price, you can serve it on the midweek dinner table, where it will pair wonderfully with lean red meat.
