Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
Lauded for its richness, depth and power upon release, Gaja’s ’85 Barbaresco has only gotten better with age. Succulent red and blue fruits mingle with warm saddle leather, crushed rose petals, crushed herbs, underbrush and tertiary notes of black tea, tar and game. This Barbaresco unspools like silk velvet, filling the mouth with texture, while its sweet inner perfume finds its complement in savory minerals, and its remarkably vibrant fruits are matched with thrumming acidity. In the belly of its drinking window, this Gaja Barbaresco feels almost ageless. This Barbaresco honors Gaja’s winemaking heritage in its blending across eight separate vineyards; each vineyard lot ferments separately in temperature-controlled stainless steel for about three weeks, and malolactic fermentation occurs in barrique. After fermentation, the separate wines mature for a year in barrique; Gaja makes its final blend, and the wine ages in botti for another year before bottling.
