Tasting Notes

Produced from estate-owned vineyards, Gaja's Barbaresco has deep, complex fruit flavours supported by refreshing acidity and firm tannins and although it has the capacity to age for 20 or more years, the wine can be appreciated within a few years of bottling. The 2007 is an outstanding expression of the vintage. Aromas of plums, forest fruits, cherries and dried herbs are followed by dark red berry fruit flavours and a lovely rich, savoury character. The tannins are firm but ripe and they are balanced by a refreshing acidity. Mineral notes and a hint of wood spice give complexity and depth on the finish. The style of the wine is more opulent and forward than the 2006 vintage but it is also very elegant, complex and persistent and one of the finest examples made by Gaja. Drink from 2016 to 2030.
