($150) Rudy red in color, tinges of orange at margins. Big aroma. On the palate, ripe black fruit, methonal, high tannins, nice balance, superconcentrated; still very young, but enjoyable.

[Euphemia Haye] Decanted for 2 hours, served in substandard glasses, which muffled nose. Tobacco, sweet fruit, rose pedals on the nose; serious structure; Tar, camphor, dark chocolate, sweet red fruit; very nice wine. Obviously infanticide, but fun. Wont drink the next bottle for 6-7 years. Found the 01 more accessible. 92-94

Drank this with my 21 year old daughter who has been drinking wine her whole life. She and I both adored it. Long finish, bold bouquet and front end with a great midpalate and smooth long finish. Jammy with hints of earth, chocolate and espresso. The tannins were still youthful yet pleasant. Although it is 10 years old, this wine has at least another 2 or 3 decades. A classic Nebbiolo putting many of the Borolos to shame. The Gaja family knows how to make wine!

A superb Sperss, with refined aromas of minerals, flowers, berries and just a hint of mint. Full-bodied and powerful, with chewy tannins and a long berry, cherry and mineral aftertaste. Impressive structure. Best after 2005.

The 2000 Barbaresco is beginning to show early tertiary qualities. Smoke, tobacco, cedar and dried cherries are some of the notes that emerge from the glass. Over time the Barbaresco gains a measure of freshness, with pretty floral aromas that weave into the finish. The tannins remain quite firm, and are likely to outlast the fruit. Anticipated maturity: 2011ndash;2020.

Power and charm combine in this exotic, black-colored, beautifully perfumed, balanced Barolo. Sure, it's a barrique-boosted Nebbiolo, but look at the exquisite result: sweet tannins, full body, exciting violet, blackberry, mint, smoke and tar notes and a rock-solid but harmonious finish. Best from 2003 through 2010.

Incredible amount of fruit and character in this wine, with mint, mineral, blackberry and plum aromas turning to tobacco and tar. Full-bodied, with an iron-cast core of fruit and velvety tannins and a long, long finish. Incredibly tight and powerful. Give this a decade. From Gajaandrsquo;s 30-acre vineyard in the Barolo-producing zone of Serralunga. Best after 2013.

The 2000 Sperss, from Serralunga d’Alba, is logically the more intense and sustained of the entire line, very fresh, tarry, resinous, and licorice-laden, deep and mouth-filling in flavor, potent, large-framed, and with a decisive strength and grip on the finish. It will drink well for over a decade and a half to come.
