Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
Supple, sensual, and expansive, Gaja’s 2015 Barolo Conteisa shows tremendous grace, detail and pure Gaja pleasure. Welcoming aromatics of brambly blue and juicy red fruits, sun-warmed stones, crushed rose petals, pressed wild herbs, and fresh loam burst from the glass of this broad-shouldered Barolo Conteisa. For all its open-knit profile, this Barolo offers chewy tannins and crackles with vivid electricity, which provide lovely balance to the wine’s copious dry extract. Approachable after just a couple of years in the cellar, this intense Gaja Barolo will drink gorgeously for years. Once called a Langhe DOC owing to its Barbera component, Conteisa is, as of the 2013 vintage, a DOCG Barolo--and it’s an intense, highly satisfying return to conventional Barolo. Conteisa gets its name from the medieval Italian word "conteisa," or quarrel, between the zones of La Morra and Barolo over the prime vineyard land of Cerequio. Grapes ferment in temperature-controlled stainless steel for three weeks; then the wine ages in both barrique and botti before bottling.
