User Reviews for Gaja Sperss Langhe

Winemaker's Notes:

The Wine Advocate review:<br/>The first thing I noticed about the 2006 Langhe Sperss is the finish, which literally lasts an eternity. It, too, is more overtly structured, powerful and less fruit-forward than the 2007, but its focus and drive are commendable. The wine seems to hover on the palate with an ethereal expression of dark fruit, smoke, licorice, tar and menthol, all of which are backed up with substantial heft and sheer muscle. This is a marvelous effort from Gaja and will appeal most to readers with a preference for sturdy, age-worthy wines. <br/> <br/>Stylistically the 2007s remind me of the 1997s in terms of their opulence. Gaja's wines are often immensely appealing when young - which is certainly the case with the 2007s - but then close down in bottle for a number of years, sometimes many years. My impression is that the Costa Russi and Conteisa are the most likely of these 2007s to off
