Barbaresco - the emblematic wine of the Gaja estate!
It is a 100% Nebbiolo wine from 14 different areas of Barbaresco vines and has 12 months of aging in barrels and another 12 months in oak barrels. The garnet color of the wine has a good intensity and the aromas are typical, linear and elegant, with notes of licorice, tobacco and violet, in addition to smoky nuances only visible in the background.
In the mouth, the sensation is harmonious, with an almost salty acidity well controlled by the extracts. The tannins are just a little dusty and distinct thanks to the relative youth of the wine and it is easy to see how it will improve with another three years in the bottle. The finish has a good persistence without any bitterness.
