THE REVIEW

The excitement around the 2012 Brunellos is palpable! This is a pre-sale of one of the finest Brunellos to come from the prized 2012's - another historic Tuscan vintage. Reserve yours today! 
    If you were fortunate enough to procure Gaja's Brunello on our 2010 offering, you can add to your cellar with this highly prized wine and stagger your enjoyment. If you didn't receive any of the 2010 offering, here is your chance to enjoy Gaja, one of the finest Italian producers, from another magical vintage.
    In the past 25 years the only vintages of this caliber were the historic 1997, the aforementioned 2010, and now the prized 2012.
     Angelo Gaja's Pieve Santa Restituta Brunello is a blend of the estate's finest single vineyard fruit, namely, Rennina and Sugarille. The 2012 Pieve Restituta culls some of the best attributes of these single vineyards in one cuvee; it is a classic wine with elegance and balance and is utterly ethereal. YOU DO NOT WANT TO MISS THIS OFFERING!
    A core of black cherry and plum has high tones of sweet spice. Notes of tobacco, mocha and fresh cut roses offer intense flavors. Fluid, long and beautifully integrated at this stage, the wine is amazing now but will only improve with age.
    While supplies last, this is an extremely limited Gaja offering.Read More »
