Angelo Gaja Darmagi Langhe Piemonte Italy 2003

Winemaker's Notes:

Intense deep red almost black. Opulent layers of concentrated fruit. Though very Cabernet in character Darmagi owes its distinctive austere personality to the unique terroir of Barbaresco. Excellent fruit with strong cassis flavors and impressive power on the palate carry through to the long finish with persistent soft tannins.

Gaja:
The Gaja winery was founded in Piedmont, Italy by Giovanni Gaja in 1859. It has been passed down through five generations of the family (who came to Italy from Spain in the 18th century) now under the direction of his great grandson Angelo Gaja.

The Gaja winery was founded in Piedmont, Italy by Giovanni Gaja in 1859. It has been passed down through five generations of the family (who came to Italy from Spain in the 18th century) now under the direction of his great grandson Angelo Gaja. The initial wines were Barbarescos (in the Barbaresco and Treiso districts), then Barolo (in Serralunga d’Alba and La Morra), and through the years the wines have branched out into other styles and vineyard locations, with expansion into Tuscany in the mid 1990s. These began as expressions of Brunello di Montalcino. In 1996, they launched Ca’Marcanda, a Gaja Super Tuscan made from Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Syrah. This highly successful venture in the Bolgheri of Maremma was intended with the Piedmontese understanding of the different terroirs and how they affect specific grapes, celebrating the best expressions of their environment. In addition to outstanding, world renown wines, Gaja also produces some top notch grappas.  Read less

Angelo Gaja 'Darmagi' Langhe DOC 2003: Dieser Wein wirkt im Glas tiefrot, fast schwarz. Seine Aromen zeigen sich vom Cabernet geprägt. Der Weingenießer schmeckt exzellente Frucht, dazu eine starke Note Cassis.  Die eindrucksvolle Geschmacksdichte auf dem Gaumen setzt sich nahtlos im langen Abgang fort. Der Darmagi weist feinstes Tannin auf und hat großes Zukunftspotenzial. Der Wein sollte 1 Stunde vorher belüftet werden.Die Geschichte vom Darmagi ist schon ein beeindruckender Coup. Über hundert Jahre gabs im Piemont keinen Cabernet Sauvignon. Auf dem Gut der Gajas wurden erstmals 1978 wieder Rebstöcke der Sorte gesetzt.  Angelo Gajas Vater, Giovanni, passierte die Neuanpflanzung auf seinem einzigartigen Terroir. Anders als der Alte wohl annahm, entwickelte der Wein exzellente Eigenschaften und einen Charakter, den er natürlich dem Barberesco-Gebiet verdankt.Weingut: Angelo GajaRegion:    PiemontRebsorten: 95% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Merlot, 2% Cabernet FrancInhalt: 0,75 lAlkoholgehalt: 14,5 Vol.%Lagerfähigkeit: 7 - 10 Jahre ab JahrgangFassreife: in Barriques gereift (6 Monate) Suche nach Rebsorten > Rote Rebsorten > Cabernet Sauvignon
