An outstanding example of Barbera from old vines, some dating back to 1949. Strained, deeply rooted plants produce the most tasteful berries. Vajra Barbera Superiore is a wine of intense aromatics, structure and longevity.

Wine SpectatorRipe, deep and intense, this red evokes raspberry, blackberry, plum, sweet spice and violet aromas and flavors. Smooth, with good structure and a long, fruit- and spice-filled aftertaste. Drink now through 2024. 1,000 cases made.

Wine EnthusiastRipe black-skinned fruit, blue flower, crushed mint and cake spice aromas take center stage, while a balsamic note stays in the background. It's big, juicy and incredibly delicious, as it doles out mouthfuls of ripe plum, succulent blackberry, Marasca cherry and vanilla alongside soft, polished tannins. A star anise note lingers on the close. Drink through 2020.
