Just bottled the 2021 Barbera d'Alba Superiore is fabulous. Rich and inky, with tremendous depth, the 2021 is so vibrant in the glass. Red/purplish fruit, lavender, sweet spice and mocha are all dialed up, with a kiss of French oak that adds raciness.

Winemaker Notes

An outstanding example of Barbera from old vines, some dating back to 1949. Strained, deeply rooted plants produce the most tasteful berries. Vajra Barbera Superiore is a wine of intense aromatics, structure and longevity.

This wine bears the small-print name Viola delle Viole, although its fruit comes from the Bricco delle Viole and Bricco Bertone vineyards, two sites with different soil types, one providing structure and the other aromatic purity.  Vajra's Barbera d'Alba Superiore opens with a dark, almost impenetrable appearance.  Powerful aromas of blackberry jam and preserved cherries unfold on the nose. You can feel its warmth and richness and there is no way around it.  It is a super-sized Barbera that goes one better in terms of extraction and intensity.  The finish shows an almost sweet note followed by good acidity.  It shows great aromatic perfection, length and a very accentuated style.
