Vajra 'Claré J.C.' Carbonic Nebbiolo
That's right, carbonic Nebbiolo from Vajra!
DESCRIPTION: Claré JC is a unique wine, our take on the forgotten days of Nebbiolo, when it was enjoyed in its lighter and fresher garment.
VARIETY: 100% Nebbiolo.
VINEYARD AND TERROIR: Fruit from our young vineyards. GROWING: In 1971, Aldo Vajra, then still a university student, was one of the earliest to adopt organic farming in Piemonte. Vineyards have been nurtured, and soil preserved, by grassing and spontaneous cover crop for almost 50 years now. They are sustainable and organic certified. With an incredible ratio of manual work per hectare, farming at Vajra is a labor of love and “recipe-free” attention. Intense research is also placed into monitoring and improving the biodiversity of both flora and fauna not just in the vineyards, but also in the winery fields and forests.
HARVEST AND WINEMAKING: Nebbiolo for 2019 Claré JC was picked between October 7th and 9th. Approximately 20% of the grapes were fermented as whole clusters. After a short maceration, the wine was racked into a pressurized vat (autoclave) to finish fermentation off the skins, for a gentler extraction. AGING: Very short aging prior to bottling, on January 27th 2020.
TASTING NOTES: Bright red ruby color. The aromas of cherries, cherry stone, candid pear and pomegranate nectar are vivid in 2019 JC Claré. This complex bouquet is completed by orange blossom, sweet spices and lifted mineral tones. The mouthfeel is vibrant, with red fruits and the sweet spices refreshed by a zesty acidity. The red silky tannins make this wine ideal to be served slightly chilled during the warmer months (14-16°C) and can pair an amazing array of diverse food, from aperitifs and appetizers to spicy dishes, fried delicacies and BBQs.
