External Reviews for Gaja Conteisa Langhe Nebbiolo Barbera Italy Piedmont Gaja
92 points - Robert Parker"The medium-bodied 2001 Conteisa is the more accessible of Gajas wines from the Barolo zone. It shows plenty of La Morras famed elegance and finesse, with a delicate nose of flowers and spices followed by rich flavors of sweet red fruit, dried flowers, roasted coffee beans, new oak and a long, caressing finish. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2021. (Oct 2006)"93 points - Wine Spectator "Plum, berry and dried flowers follow through to a full-bodied palate, with fine tannins and a long, caressing finish. Lovely. This is subtle and refined with wonderful balance. Best after 2007. 1,350 cases made. JS (Oct 31 2005)"

Wine Spectator 96 Collectible "A very silky wine with berry, cedar and tobacco character. Full-bodied, with fine tannis and a fresh finish. Lovely. Seductive and racy. Very long indeed. Strength yet finesse. Best after 2007. (J.S.)" Stephan Tanzer 95 "Good full red-ruby. Rather mute on the nose, hinting only at plum. Then plummy, dense and deep, with strong acids giving the wine terrific grip. Notes of licorice, violet and minerals lift the wine's fruit. Comes across as the least filled-in of these three 2001s today, but this still needs time to harmonize. Most impressive today on the powerfully structured, slow-building finish."
