Dragon wine. No, it’s not a new wave Chinese wine, it’s from Piemonte. A “field blend” of Chardonnay, Sauvignon, Riesling (for elegance) and Nascetta, a rare local white variety with a tannic edge (for complexity and longevity).
The vines are grown side by side and the grapes are vinified together by G. D. Vajra in Barolo. Savoury, almost olivey, it was a discovery in Edinburgh from the inimitable Valvona & Crolla.
