“The 'brilliant' 2015 Gaja Brunello!”

A challenging 2017 Tuscan vintage makes this 2015 Tuscan Trophy a must-have!

By David Gettenberg

To say that 2017 Tuscany was challenging is an understatement.  You have to look very carefully within the upcoming vintage to find some greats - though they do exist.  There is a shortage of wine to boot.  

So, you can imagine our surprise when we gained access to one of our favorite Brunello producers, Gaja, from the 2015 vintage, "a historical year for Brunello di Montalcino that nobody should miss." James Suckling

Wines like Gaja are the reason readers become passionate about Italian reds. That's why Wine Spectator has called Gaja's wines "the finest Italian wines ever made."

The 2015 - now with seven years of bottle age - is gorgeous!  Fresh raspberry and dark cherry at its core.  Pepper and herbal notes are accompanied by tea, coffee bean, and balsamic.  The entrance is voluptuous with sweet, pure fruit. The tannins are easily detectable but velvety and beautifully integrated.  It is a harmonious wine, immediately impressive with balance and structure to last! 

Here's also a little fact that few are aware of:  Sangiovese grapes in this wine come from Gaja's Rennina and Sugarille estate vineyards; those Brunellos sell in excess of $170 per bottle.  This wine culls the best attributes of these single vineyards in one cuvee.

Silky is the word most often used when referring to Gaja's Brunello.  With a classic release like 2015, this is the Gaja vintage to own.

A historic Gaja release, 2015 is amazing now and will only improve with age.

​​​​​​​Enjoy!
