Ripe black cherries, anise, effusive nose. Low tannins, good acidity. Simple and easy drinking for Nebbiolo.

A very pleasant Nebbiolo. The hallmark roses and tar are there, with crunchy red fruit. Soft and balanced, light but not thin. Excellent value. There's a cheaper Vajra Langhe Rosso, but that was too thin and acidic for me.

2013 vintage going on three days open now. And still singing. This is an incredibly pure, classic Nebbiolo. #vajra #nebbiolo #langhe #piemonte #

GD Vajra always stunning. Supple but understated Nebbiolo, red flowers and sweet earth.

Langhe Nebbiolo 2013
90+/100 - Our Score
90/100 - Vinous, Antonio Galloni
(12/2015) "The 2013 Langhe Nebbiolo is a beautiful example of the vintage. A dark, inviting wine, the 2013 possesses striking aromatics, expressive fruit and a classic, mid-weight feel. Sweet red cherry, plum, spices and licorice inflections add the closing shades of nuance. The Nebbiolo is a blend of mostly fruit from Sinio, which is just outside the Barolo appellation, in a spot where some growers sourced fruit for their Barolos in the days when there was less regulation. Young vine fruit from both Bricco delle Viole and Ravera rounds out the blend."

Langhelicious! Fresh bright cherry with good tannins. Tarty as a @Bill Bender Delectable post.

Cherry, tobacco and black licorice. On the palette comes the feeling of a huge wine but the tannins finish out beautifully. Great go to table Nebbiolo.
