Gaja Langhe Nebbiolo Conteisa Italy Piedmont Barolo Red 2000

External Review by Premier Wine & Spirits:

This 1997 has complex and vivid aromas of flowers, berry and mineral, with just the right amount of mint. Full-bodied and thick, with lots of refined tannins. Loads of violet, berry and mineral on the aftertaste. Extremely fine. Best after 2005.

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

Very dark color, but right. Incredible aromas of crushed strawberries, raspberries and flowers. Full-bodied, with beautifully silky tannins and a long, caressing finish. A true beauty. This is real Nebbiolo. Conteisa comes from the Cerequio vineyard near La Morra, in the heart of Barolo-producing territory. Best after 2009.

Angelo Gaja Conteisa Langhe DOC 2000: Das Bukett dieses granatroten Weines enthält ausdrucksvolle blumige Noten, dazu Aromen roter Beeren, von Pflaumen, Lakritze und Gewürz. Ein Jahr reifte er in Barriques und ein Jahr in großen Holzfässern. Dieser Rotwein repräsentiert die Essenz des Cerequio-Terroirs. Seine samtige Textur und der sehr finessenreiche Charakter harmonieren fürstlich mit den perfekt integrierten, delikaten Tanninen.    Weingut: Angelo GajaRegion: PiemontRebsorten: 92% Nebbiolo, 8% BarberaInhalt: 0,75 lAlkoholgehalt: 14 Vol.%Lagerfähigkeit: 10 Jahre ab JahrgangFassreife: in Barriques gereift (12 Monate)Empfohlene Serviertemperatur: 16-18°C Suche nach Rebsorten > Rote Rebsorten > Nebbiolo

The 2000 Conteisa, made principally from the Cerequio vineyard in La Morra, is classically fresh, balsamic, and floral, ample and solid on the palate with polished tannins, fine solidity, and much focus on its lengthy close. Drink: 2005andndash;2020.
