Christopher Deas, Italian Wine Merchants: “There is a lot of Brunello packed into this bottle! The wine shows the ripeness of the vintage but with more depth than some of its neighbors. It is Sangiovese Grosso on steroids with a powerful nose that reaches out, grabs you, and takes you to the hills of Tuscany. On the palate, there are gobs of upfront fruit, concentration, and texture, yet at the same time, there is plenty of depth, structure, and persistence that reverberate through the palate. You can expect nuances of dark cherries, dried berries, plum, even a touch of licorice, citrus peel, leather, brown spice and baked earth. The GAJA touch is on full display as this is an explosive wine with well-integrated, almost silk-like tannins that makes it deceivingly inviting today. We do recommend some aeration or short decant if drinking in the short term. Certainly one of the finest Brunello Classicos that we have tasted from this old, but newly rising star estate." more info

The designation Rennina (rehn-NEE-nah) first appears in the High Middle Ages and is derived from the late-Roman name of the estate, Fundus Rescianum, denoting a state-owned farm. Since the Gaja family's acquisition of the historic estate in 1994, three growing sites have been devoted to the cultivation of Sangiovese Grosso grapes for the production of Brunello di Montalcino: Santo Pietro (St. Peter), Castagno (Chestnut Tree), and Pian dei Cerri (Turkish Oak Flats). Here, lime-rich subsoils, southwest exposure, and ventilation arriving from the Tyrrhenian sea to the west deliver well-balanced Brunello di Montalcino, defined by its characteristic red fruit notes, minerality, and polished tannins more info

Brambly blue and tart red fruits dance against a backdrop of truffles, pressed herbs, violet petals, warm spices and crushed river rocks in the seductive, sinuous ’13 Brunello Rennina. Lush and evocative, this wine unfurls on the palate to reveal a range of textures and an array of notes, underpinned by flinty minerality and touched with a kiss of orange zest. Lingering and almost fleshy, this wine has the structure to age. The Brunello Rennina, sourced from three discrete vineyard sites that date back to the 1500s, has the happy coincidence of having rich lime soils, making for grapes that tame the tannins, acidity and fierceness of the Sangiovese Grosso. Deriving from vineyards in Santo Pietro, Castagno, and Pian dei Cerri, the grapes for this wine ferment for a month in temperature-controlled stainless steel, and the wine ages for a year each in barriques and in botti. more info
