This is a beautifully harmonious wine which combines concentration with finesse, and the elegance of the 2014 vintage with the intensity characteristic of the Serralunga vineyard. An expansive bouquet of bright red cherries mingles with savoury spices and sweet herbs which leads to a succulent palate of red currants, wild strawberries and dark plums while a refined mineral structure provides great definition and length. This impressive wine unfurls in the glass - it has the complexity and depth for extensive ageing. Drink from 2022-2040.

Reviews & Scores

The 2014 Barolo Sperss is an attractive wine from Gaja's vineyards in Serralunga. There is good depth to the succulent black cherry, plum, smoke and licorice flavors, although it doesn't quite have the explosiveness or power of the very best years. Because of the wine's slender personality, the oak is a bit more evident than is typically the case. The Sperss also feels a bit forced in terms of extraction and oak, especially next to the Conteisa, where the choices have turned out to be more successful in bringing out the best the vintage has to offer.

This is deeply mineral with a real sense of purpose and line. There is such delicacy to the fruit and an outstanding...

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.

TASTING NOTES

Gaja’s Costa Russi is usually the most aromatic and elegant of the three single vineyard wines with a finer structure. The 2014 retains its personality with an expansive bouquet of wild berries mingled with rose petals and an attractive balsamic note. Succulent and rich on the palate, it has a core of sweet red fruits with darker mulberry and blackberry...
