(From 2010 Vintage) The Gaja Barbaresco is garnet in color. The nose is almost sensual in its complexity, with aromas of forest fruits, plums, licorice, mineral and coffee scents. The taste is long, with a complex finish with fine, silk-like tannins and good acidity; dense structure, full of super-ripe fruit.
(From 2003 Vintage) That combines expressive aromatics, the ripeness of the vintage and classic structure, it is an awesome effort. Though it offers plenty of super-ripe fruit and notable concentration, it never comes across as being heavy and displays exceptional overall balance.
