2018 MOSCATO D'ASTI, GD Vajra. Piedmont, Italy
"Bright straw-green. Very intense aromas and flavours of vanilla, white peach, orange blossom and lemon verbena. Ripe and luscious but fresh, featuring precise flavours of fresh citrus, vanilla and cinnamon. Finishes long and honeyed but with noteworthy floral lift. This is made with grapes grown in two vineyards in Mango (Riforno and San Donato) and one in Santo Stefano Belbo (Moncucco), both grand cru areas for Moscato Bianco. The 2017 Moscato d’Asti from Vajra is one of his best in recent years – and keep in mind that this is almost always a truly superb wine. In fact, as good as many of the Vajra family’s wines are (such as, for example, many standout Barolos, a benchmark Freisa, an outstanding Dolcetto and Piedmont’s most famous if not best Riesling wine), their Moscato d’Asti is almost always, each year, one of the denomination’s best."
