Tasting Notes

If you are interested in purchasing Gaja Conteisa, please contact our Private Clients team at clients@armitwines.co.uk.

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.

TASTING NOTES

“A darker, more structured Barolo than his sibling, Prapo’ is an incredibly pure expression of the terroir of Serralunga. Precise notes of red and black berries, forest floor and dark spices are framed by tight woven tannins and lively freshness. An exciting release that has the potential to be enjoyed for the next 10 years.” Armit Wines

TASTING NOTES

“Taut, elegant, ethereal expression of Nebbiolo. A purebred Barolo that entices with notes of red fruits, meadow flowers and just hints of Italian leather and spices. Already approachable, Cerretta will be a sure joy to revisit in five to ten years.” Armit Wines
