This has a darker fruit character than Conteisa. Very deep and layered and in need of time to unfurl. The texture and harmony of the wine are most striking at this stage. Gossamer but very present tannins which reinforce and support the dense core of fruit. This hangs together perfectly with a great sense of progression from the concentrated fruit through to the long, fresh exciting finish. Withtime in the glass the remarkable nuance of this wine reveals itself and we can?t wait to see this evolve. Fabulous.
Reviews & Scores
Dark red fruit, savory herbs, menthol, tobacco and smoke are some of the many notes that take shape in the 2010 Sperss. A wine of unusual translucency and nuance, in 2010 Sperss is supremely refined and less bombastic than is often the case. The 2010 shuts down quickly in the glass and its best days lie many, many years ahead. Today, though, I am quite struck by what appears to be a subtle yet noticeable change in direction at Gaja.
