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
