Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
This is a wine to buy by the case. 2013 is shaping up to be an epic year in Barbaresco, and this Gaja bottling shows remarkable finesse, depth and polish. Sophisticated and silky, this ’13 Barbaresco frames its pure red and blue fruits with crushed violets, fresh-cut herbs, licorice, sun-warmed earth, and a kiss of kirsch. Wrapping the palate with an energetic yet velvety grip, this wine builds to a crescendo of chewy tannins that are complemented by a sweet inner perfume--it’s outstanding. This traditional cuvée Barbaresco honors Gaja’s winemaking heritage in its blending across fourteen separate vineyards. Gaja ferments each vineyard lot 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.
