Gaja Barbaresco 2004

Member Review by Grande Passione:

a fantastic wine. beautiful clear bright ruby color, with medium intensity aromas of fresh forest fruits, berries, and licorice. a very well balanced palate with its acidity, soft ripe tannins, and flavours marrying each other perfectly. a long richly fruity lenght of complexity and savouriness which waters my mouth only thinking about it now. definitely a great wine which, in my humble experience, i think will be a great fine wine. to keep for many years.

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

Das besondere Merkmal von Gajas Barbaresco (Nebbiolo) ist die Ausgewogenheit von Frucht, Körper, Säure, Tannin und Eichenholzprägung. In der Nase erinnert dieses aussergewöhnliche Gewächs an Lakritz und Leder sowie an die nebbiolotypischen Aromen wie dunkle Rosen und Tabak. Dieser grandiose Weltklassewein betört durch seine reintönige und zarte Frucht. Eine kraftvolle tiefgründige Provenienz mit Stil.

Barbaresco DOCG 2004 - Angelo Gaja: Barbaresco DOCG 2004 - Rotwein von Angelo GajaDas am häufigsten verwendete Wort für die Beschreibung des Nebbiolo ist "Charakter". Er ist die typischste Rebsorte seiner Heimat, dem Piemont. Dieser Barbaresco aus der gleichnamigen Gemeinde ist ein komplexer und feinfruchtiger Wein, der besonders duftig und elegant wirkt. In diesem erstklassigen Wein vereinen sich Nebbiolo-Trauben aus 14 unterschiedlichen Gaja-Lagen. Im Glas zeigt er sich grantrot, während sein Bukett die typischen Aromen von Waldbeeren und Pflaumen und mineralische und kaffeeartige Noten offenbart. Neben seiner Intensität und Dichte lässt dieser Wein Eleganz und ein vielschichtiges Finale an feinstem, seidigen Tannin erkennen.Weingut: Angelo GajaLand: ItalienRegion: PiemontRebsorte: NebbioloInhalt: 0,75 lAlkoholgehalt: 14 Vol.%Empfohlene Serviertemperatur: 16 - 18°CFassreife: in Barriques gereift (12 Monate)Lagerfähigkeit: 7 - 10 Jahre ab Jahrgang Suche nach Rebsorten > Rote Rebsorten > Nebbiolo
