Phenomenal aromas of crushed berries, strawberries, blackberries and minerals. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long, long finish. Just the right amount of wood and fruit. Best after 2006. 2,800 cases made. -JS Wine Spectator. A Proprietary Blend wine from Piedmont in Italy. 1998 Gaja Langhe Sperss 750ml

Fantastic, promising nose of tar, licorice, minerals, and toasted oak. This mid-weight wine is fairly soft, but is also totally shut down and inexpressive on the palate today and seems to be at an awkward stage in its development. Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

Wine Spectator ReviewLoads of cherry, raspberry and mineral aromas. Full-bodied, with soft, well-knit tannins and a long, long finish. A modern and delicious Barbaresco. Best after 2003.
