Here’s an exciting discovery from G.D. Vajra. The 2018 Piemonte Barbera Freisa is an excellent wine and a worthy value proposition. Both the grapes used in the blend, Barbera (55%) and Freisa (45%), are celebrated locally for their versatility and their ease when paired with the local foods. From tagliarin with a light meat sauce to Bra pork sausage that is put on the grill in one giant coil, this wine has you covered. The wine’s 15.5% alcohol content and its generous fruit keep the palate food-ready. The back label explains that estate patriarch Carlo (Carlin) Vajra produced a mysterious blend of the two grapes in 1970. That legacy lives on in this inaugural release of 3,000 bottles. This wine delivers black fruit with a hint of extra ripeness or blackberry preserves on the finish.
