Tasting notes
This Moscato is youthful yellow in colour with straw yellow hues. On the nose there are expressive aromas of sage and fresh yellow fruits such as apricots, peaches and exotic fruits. A delicate, fine mousse refreshes and cleanses the palate. The balance between sweetness and freshness carries into a long creamy finish.

    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, Fossati, La Volta and Coste di Vergne. A traditionalist, Aldo adheres to old-style winemaking methods, though blends these with new techniques, such as temperature-controlled fermentation, to produce such superbly elegant wines.
    Vinification
    The grapes were left to mature on the vine until ripe, then hand-picked and sorted. Soft pressing was followed by cold settling. The wine was fermented under pressure for a week in stainless steel tanks at 14°C. The fermentation was interrupted at 5.5% ABV by drop of temperature. The wine was held in refrigerated stainless steel tanks to retain freshness and natural effervescence until bottling.
