‘This wine is all about fun and good cheer. "Every day that you drink Dolcetto is a good day," says Isidoro Vaira. The organic 2022 Dolcetto d'Alba Coste & Fossati reveals rich, dark fruit with a pronounced sweet side. There is soft cherry, blackberry and crème de cassis. The wine is quite plump and juicy in character, setting it up for pairing with wood-oven pizza. 2023-2025’ – Monica Larner, Wine Advocate, 92/100

‘The 2022 Dolcetto d'Alba Coste & Fossati is a powerful, deep wine. Black cherry, plum, leather, grilled herbs, gravel, lavender and spice lend notable complexity. Imposing tannins and rich fruit give this a very serious feel. The 2022 is a wine for the dinner table. 2023-2029’ – Antonio Galloni, Vinous, 90/100

‘Vivid fruit sheathed in firm, muscular, sandy tannins. Dust and rosehips. Sour cherry. Vibrant fruit with a delicate forest-floor savoury outline and a breathy whisper of florals. The finish draws down tight and then circles back into the brightness of its fruit. Great sapidity! Appetising and full of life, and even better after the bottle was left (deliberately) open for 24 hours. 2024-2026’ – Tamlyn Currin, JancisRobinson.com, 17/20

Producer information GD Vajra estate is named after Giuseppe Domenico Vajra who founded the estate in 1972. Located in the highest village of Barolo, the vineyards are run by Giuseppe's son Aldo and his family. The vineyards sit at high altitudes of up to 400 metres, this creates thermal changes which ripen the fruit slowly and allow the concentration of noble and delicate aromas.
