THE REVIEW

"The 2013 Barbaresco is fabulous...this is one of the best Barbarescos I have tasted at Gaja...For readers who can find it, the 2013 is simply a must-have wine." Antonio Galloni
    Worth every penny, this is a breathtaking Barbaresco. Time in the bottle will certainly enhance it, but WOW is it stellar now! If you have the discipline to lay this one down, in ten years you will look back in awe of the vintage and be thrilled that you added this trophy to your collection.
    "Vibrant, perfumed and beautifully sculpted in the glass, the 2013 possesses tons of understated intensity. Sweet red cherry, mint, white pepper and anise are all lifted in the glass. The 2013 is an almost shockingly classic Barbaresco from Gaja" A. Galloni
    As we enter the 2016 holiday season, we are proud to feature the 2013 Gaja Barbaresco, Piedmont's reigning king. With Gaja's single vineyard Barbaresco fetching north of $600 per bottle, relatively speaking, this Gaja is a great value.
     Soft and seamless on the palate, the 2013 Gaja Barbaresco shows wonderful integrity in its fruit in an opulent, yet mid-weight style. Soil-driven aromas of sour cherry, pomegranate, minerals and leather are lifted by tobacco notes. Hints of spice, round tannins and a vibrant finish frame this awesome red.
    Happy Holidays! Enjoy!Read More »
