1996 Gaja Barbaresco DOCG Piedmont

Wine Description

(From 2009 Vintage) Shows deep aromatic layers of ripe fruit, leather, black licorice, dried herb and savory tobacco. It is extremely velvety and smooth, with firm tannins and a richly extracted fruit finish.

Winemaker's Notes

(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.
