Jeff's Notes:

The holidays call for something special, but that doesn’t have to mean breaking the bank. G.D. Vajra’s ‘Albe’ Barolo is a perennial favorite, in part because it offers such great value. Grapes come from three vineyards in the village of Barolo, lending the wine a velvety, open-knit, expression of Nebbiolo from this top terroir. Even in the powerful 2019 vintage, tannins are very fine and integrated, meaning you can enjoy this in its youth during holiday celebrations, or you can gift it to a wine collector who might want to give it some time in their cellar.

What's Cooking?

Fresh egg pasta with veal ragu

What do I like to drink?

People think I only drink Nebbiolo from Barolo, but I’m *way* more diverse than that. I’ll also drink Nebbiolo from Alto Piemonte.
