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.

TASTING NOTES

Compact, taut, powerful, the most reticent of the three. With a little time in the glass the perfume starts to hint at what this wine is capable of: red fruit, rose, rich spice and a sense of stones.

2010 Sperss, Gaja Piedmont

Bottle 75cl £187.08

TASTING NOTES

The 2011 really highlights the nuance, subtlety and elegance that this site is capable of whilst retaining the depth, verve and structure. This is a powerfully built Barbaresco but one with striking finesse. There is so much complexity but it is seamless and weightlessly elegant. One of the best Sorì Tildìns we have tasted. Supreme.

TASTING NOTES

Floral, extravagantly perfumed and sensual. This is a textured, sumptuously fruity Costa Russi with a backbone of acidity and minerality which frames and elevates the layered and complex fragrance and silky texture. Extremely evocative, engaging and enticing this really highlights the delicacy of Barbaresco yet still has the grunt, power and sophistication of a Gaja wine. Brilliant.
