Description
Angelo Gaja is considered one of the principal voices behind the emergence of Barbaresco. In 1975, he employed barriques in the vinification of his Barbaresco cuvée and is widely held to have introduced the technique to the area. His aim was to moderate the considerable tannins found in Nebbiolo and deliver a fruitier, richer expression than had been traditionally accomplished. He was also instrumental in introducing new initiatives such as limiting crop size, decreasing the length of fermentation, and using new pruning methods. You will find this wine to be exotically flavoured, elegant and balanced, with red fruit and meaty tones.
Tasting Notes
Superbly made. Elegant, balanced with exotic layers of flavour. Everything comes together without any one element dominating. Long finish. This robust red is a blend of Nebbiolo, Cabernet and Merlot grapes. This Piedmontese DOC region, Langhe, allows the most grape varieties in the blend as well as various winemaking techniques, which allows true stars like this producer to take their artistry to a new level. Nebbiolo food pairings: mature cheeses, rare cuts of meat, risotto. Drink: 2013-2018. Score - 93. (Natalie MacLean, nataliemaclean.com, Aug. 11, 2013)
