2019 G.D. Vajra Clare JC Langhe Nebbiolo 750 ml

Availability: In stock (5)

Made from 100% Nebbiolo, Claré JC is a unique wine from Italy, inspired by notes of G.B. Croce from 1606. It is Nebbiolo in its lightest and freshest guise: the wine is bottled immediately after fermentation, so as to maintain a sweet finish and beautiful drinking energy. It is an easy one to love, too:

92+ Points - "Although this wine has been produced since 2014, it is a new discovery to me—and a terrific one at that. I'll start off with the beautiful graphics on the label that were inspired by the winemaking protocols penned in 1606 by Gian Battista Croce, a jeweler for the House of Savoia who dabbled in wine. The G.D. Vajra 2019 Langhe Nebbiolo Claré J.C. is a pure expression of Nebbiolo, with about one-fifth whole-cluster fermentation. Following suggestions to serve the wine slightly chilled, I tasted my sample at 55 degrees Fahrenheit, and I would recommend the same to you. This wine offers an innovative and playful look at the normally austere, long-term Nebbiolo grape. In fact, this Langhe Nebbiolo borrows from Beaujolais. You'll love the vibrant, tonic and lively fruit that pops from the glass with focused intensity. The palate is lean and crisp. Some 12,000 bottles were released in March 2020, and that price point is unbeatable. I am absolutely smitten." - Monica Larner (Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, July 2020)
