I've finally come around to taking the time and interest in reading the story behind Gaja, and getting a feel for their lineup of reds. While doing so, I couldn't shake the feeling that what I was looking at was a rough (and more affordable) Italian equivalent of DRC.
There are plenty of differences, but what I found similar were the collections of single vineyard wines all very highly regarded, and of course the unmistakable brand. It'd line up a lot better I'm sure DRC's flagship and La Tache were eliminated, but nonetheless at about 10-20% of the price of DRC, I actually have a shot at trying the stuff.
Anyone have any experiences with these wines, and are they worth it? I get the feeling the Barbaresco's are definitely not worth the price, but some of the single vineyard wines interest me.
