    Lea & Sandeman review
    Light in alcohol like all Moscatos, Vajra's version seems to catch all the essence of the scent of the Muscat grape and its scrumptious juiciness, with the delicacy of touch and freshness on the finish of a really accomplished wine.

    Other reviews and comments
    This is brilliant, and worth the premium price. Grapey and luscious but with good balance and some subtle herby notes. Really lovely example of Moscato at its best. 90/100

    The winery of G.D. Vajra was initially established in 1972, although the Vajra family dates back more than two centuries in the Barolo region. Aldo and his wife Milena own the vineyards, mainly all situated in Barolo. His winemaking techniques are quite traditional, using longer maceration times and primarily Slavonian casks for ageing. However he would not describe his style as tradtional, but forward thinking and happy to evolve depending on the vintage. As the vineyards are situated 400m above sea level, the grapes ripen later than in other areas, resulting in wonderfully fresh wines with balanced acidity.
