If there is a better 2013 Barolo, we have yet to taste it! You have not lived until you have enjoyed one of Gaja's magical Barolos.

"Gaja's 2013 Sperss Barolo is fabulous...the wine hits all the right notes." Antonio Galloni

"The 2013 Barolo Sperss paints a very authentic picture of its unique territory with rich layers of black fruit, wet earth, black truffle, licorice and spice. The wine's tannic structure is firm and lasting. It shows broad shoulders and rich texture overall. This beautiful Barolo boasts a dark color and thick concentration with the aromatic elegance obtained in the 2013 vintage." The Wine Advocate

From an amazing Piedmont vintage, this is a highly collectible wine and a breathtaking Barolo. If you have the discipline to lay this one down, in ten years(+) you will look back in awe of the vintage. Cellar it and watch it evolve with amazement!

The 2013 Piedmont vintage may have produced a lot of good Barolos, however, Gaja's Sperss is in a league of its own.

Enjoy!

ANTONIO GALLONI

97 / 100

"Gaja's 2013 Sperss is fabulous. Deep and powerful, yet also wonderfully translucent, the 2013 hits all the right notes. Graphite, game, smoke, licorice, plum, black cherry and dark spice are some of the signatures, but as is always the case with the best vintages, Sperss is a wine of vertical intensity and muscle. The 2013 won't be anywhere near ready to drink for a number of years. All the pedgiree and character of these Serralunga sites come through in an exceptionally beautiful and vivid Barolo from Gaja."

WINE SPECTATOR

96 / 100

"Textbook rose, tar and cherry aromas and flavors, with accents of oak spice, licorice and tobacco, are the hallmarks of this complex red. Powerful, yet harmonious, showing fine structure and a lingering finish."
