“GAJA 2016 Barbaresco | "Among The Best Of This Century." G. Gaja”

"MUST-HAVE VINTAGE STATUS FOR BARBARESCO COLLECTORS AND LOVERS" Gaia Gaja

By David Gettenberg

The Finest Piedmont Producer + The Vintage Of The Century = A Must-Have Combination!

2016 Piedmont is "a vintage that has no comparison among the others.  With a beautiful growing season and optimal harvest, 2016 has the potential to achieve must-have vintage status for Barbaresco collectors and lovers."  Gaia Gaja

In any vintage, Gaja Barbaresco is the benchmark Barbaresco.  In 2016, it is in a league of its own.

"Aromas of rose, red berry and eucalyptus mingle with whiffs of exotic spice on the gorgeous, fragrant red. Loaded with finesse and tension, the elegant, structured palate delivers crushed raspberry, white pepper and star anise set against fresh acidity and taut, lithe tannins. It's already compelling, but hold for even more complexity."  (Cellar Selection, Wine Enthusiast)

Get ready for a thrill; this is "a stunning, brilliant vintage."  Vinous

The importer is sold-out and we only have a precious few cases left.  Add to your verticals if you already have Gaja in your cellar.  If you are new to Gaja, this is the vintage to begin your journey - you will realize it is worth every penny.

Few will have the willpower to lay this one down, so decant and enjoy!  But, if you can wait a few years, you will look back in awe and be thrilled that you added this trophy to your collection.

Enjoy!
