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

WS95 Wow. This is pure fruit. Aromas of raspberries cherries and blackberries jump from the glass. Full-bodied with ultrafine tannins and a long long finish. Shows wonderful finesse and class. RP95 Offering much delineation in its elegant macerated cherry fruit and tar flavors with greater length fine tannins and exceptional overall balance. ST94 A bit less exuberant on the nose than the Costa Russi hinting at plum mocha chocolate underbrush and minerals. Very suave on entry then brooding classy and young with far more primary black fruit and licorice flavors.
