Wine Description

Impressively sculpted. The most tannic of Gaja's three single-vineyard crus. While closed on the nose now, it suggest lots of depth and, in the mouth, this full-bodied wine delivers a smooth ride, layered with flavors of pure fruit, wild berry and earth.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2010 Vintage) Color: Dark ruby/purple.
Nose: A captivating and refined nose with a well-integrated aromas of blackberries, violets and roasted coffee beans
Palate: Elegance and crystal purity characterize this extremely complex and densely woven wine with an aging patential of decades.
