Gaja Barbaresco DOCG 2017
Lavet på 100% Nebbiolo fra ikke mindre end 14 af GAJA´s forskellige vinmarker omkring Barbaresco og Treiso. En rigtig Barbaresco med en fantastisk intens frugt, stor koncentration og en god fast tannin. Man forbavses over, hvorledes han mestrer at forene styrken med en sådan finesse. I visse årgange kan Gaja´s Barbaresco modnes i op til 30 år
95 points Robert ParkerThe Gaja 2017 Barbaresco is nuanced and delicate with ever-expanding aromatic intensity that amply fills the balloon of your glass. The wine takes a little while to open fully, and it slowly releases forest berry, powdered licorice, toasted aniseed, spearmint, dried lavender and rosemary essence to build a lasting bouquet. The mouthfeel is streamlined and almost steely, with an extremely linear approach that adds to its length and persistency. The tannins are tucked into the wine's delicate fiber, but you do feel the extra textural firmness of the hot vintage nonetheless. As we have seen in past vintages, more definition is added by a pretty mineral note that is a common thread in these wines from Gaja. Production is 38,000 bottles.
97 points James SucklingGlorious aromas of flowers, crushed berries, strawberries and dried herbs. Some tea. Full-bodied and layered with a wonderfully curated, polished tannin structure and backbone. Give it three or four years to soften.
95 points Wine EnthusiastFragrant and refined, this opens with heady scents of wild berry, rose petal, camphor and underbrush. Elegantly structured, the polished palate offers ripe Marasca cherry, blood orange and star anise framed in taut, fine-grained tannins.
95 points FalstaffBright, ruby core with hints of garnet on the rim. Emphatic savory notes of cloves, some roses and lots of juicy cherry on the nose. Round and supple fruit concentration on the palate, opens up further with vivid, crisp tannins, very well integrated fresh acidity and a firm focused drive to the finish.
