Gaja Brunello di Montalcino Sugarille 2000

External Review by WineExpress.com:

Angelo Gaja’s offerings from Tuscany are no less exciting and impressive than his famous Barbarescos. This Brunello di Montalcino comes from one of his single vineyards. The unique position and soil structure of the Sugarille vineyard - calcareous clay with a gently sloping southern exposure - give this wine an expressive, powerful character. This is a very special terroir, producing outstanding, long-aging Brunello. Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate rated it 92 points and said: “The 2000 Brunello di Montalcino Sugarille is dark in color as well as fresh in its aromas and flavors. It exudes a deep palate packed with smoke, tar, underbrush, tobacco and vibrant dark fruit in a style that marries power with finesse. A few years of cellaring are suggested, after which this wine will drink beautifully to at least age 20.” Grab it while it's ON SALE!

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
