Additional Information on G.D. Vajra Dolcetto D'alba 2013

Winery: G.D. Vajra

Varietal: Dolcetto

Wineries in Italy and many other countries in the world have longed admired the Dolcetto grape, a black skinned varietal responsible for many interesting and intensely flavored wines. Despite their name translating as 'little sweet one' in Italian, the wines produced from this varietal are almost always dry, and benefit from the strong tannins held in the dense skins of the fruit. Although this characteristic normally results in a full bodied wine, Dolcetto grapes generally are responsible for producing quite light wines as a result of their low acidity, yet are packed full of interesting flavors such as liquorice and prunes, black cherries and almonds which are a delight to the palate and make them a great match for strongly flavored and spicy foods.

Region: Piedmont

n Italy, the region most closely associated with excellent quality red wines and characterful sparkling wines is Piedmont. This alpine region is located in the north-west of the country, and features beautiful foothills of the impressive mountain range which forms the nearby border between Italy, France and Switzerland. Wineries in Piedmont work with the Nebbiolo, Dolcetto and Barbera grapes which thrive in the warm, dry summers and cooler autumns, as well as the beautifully expressive Moscato grapes which are used for the sparkling Asti wines the region is famed for. For generations, these wineries have perfected the art of aging their red wines, and blending grape varietals to get the most out of each one, leading to a region known all over the world for the exceptional quality of its produce.

Country: Italy

There are few countries in the world with a viticultural history as long or as illustrious as that claimed by Italy. Grapes were first being grown and cultivated on Italian soil several thousand years ago by the Greeks and the Pheonicians, who named Italy 'Oenotria' – the land of wines – so impressed were they with the climate and the suitability of the soil for wine production. Of course, it was the rise of the Roman Empire which had the most lasting influence on wine production in Italy, and their influence can still be felt today, as much of the riches of the empire came about through their enthusiasm for producing wines and exporting it to neighbouring countries. Since those times, a vast amount of Italian land has remained primarily for vine cultivation, and thousands of wineries can be found throughout the entire length and breadth of this beautiful country, drenched in Mediterranean sunshine and benefiting from the excellent fertile soils found there. Italy remains very much a 'land of wines', and one could not imagine this country, its landscape and culture, without it.
