2012 Gaja, "DaGromis" Barolo

Press and Tasting Notes

A little known fact about this particular Gaja Barolo: in 2012, Gaja did not make their prized Nebbiolos, "Conteisa" or "Sperss" (at $200 and $300 per bottle, respectively). Instead, that precious fruit went into the 2012 DaGromis - and it shows!!

THE REVIEW

You may know Gaja wines, which Wine Spectator has anointed as "the finest Italian wines ever made." You may even have been fortunate enough to savor the expression of a Gaja Barolo. If so, today's feature is not to be missed. And, if Gaja's Barolos have eluded you to this point, the 2012 Gaja "DaGromis" Barolo is a unique opportunity for you.
    Here is a little secret about the 2012 DaGromis Barolo that few know: in 2012, Gaja did not make their prized Nebbiolos, "Conteisa" or "Sperss" (at $200 and $300 per bottle, respectively). Instead, that precious fruit went into the 2012 DaGromis - and it shows!!
    Rich aromas of wild berries and floral notes are layered with licorice, dried herbs and spices. The textured body has an elegance and softness about it that can only be described as Gaja-like. Intoxicating truffle notes appear after a minute or two in the glass, along with strawberry and chamomile. The refined character of the Conteisa and Sperss fruit makes its presence known in the stunning finish that seems to linger for minutes!
    The Gaja mystique cannot be replicated by any other Italian producer. And, to answer your question, "Is it ready to drink now?" The answer is yes! Now and over the next five years. While supplies last, this is an extremely limited Gaja offering. First come, first served. Enjoy!Read More »
