The 2016 Gaja Barbaresco is a must have red from a Piedmont vintage that is being heralded as the greatest vintage in a century. Barbaresco and Nebbiolo fans will want to participate in the enjoyment of the 2016 Gaja Barbaresco, which opens with cedar, wild raspberries, eucalyptus, and baking spice. The palate caresses with cherry, strawberry, crushed herb and menthol. Classic acidity, balance and a well-structured frame hold all the elements of this wine together. This is a pure, expressive Nebbiolo that, above all else, is graceful. One of the best ever. A trophy for one's cellar for sure.
