G.D. Vajra, Langhe, Nebbiolo, 2007 (?)
Damn! I can't read the vintage, and the bottle has long since been recycled, but you know it's like 2005, 2006 or 2007, whatevs!
We really enjoyed this bottle. I like Langhe Nebbiolo because the tannins are really quite approachable when young compared to Barolo and Barbaresco and of course, far less expensive. I think I actually blind tasted this one for Chianti Classico. I keep getting Nebbiolo and Sangiovese confused in blind tastings, which may seem crazy to some, but it's just a thing I've got. Around $22 at the Wine House.
